Goal

showdevices gathers device information from one or more Sun Fire[TM] high-end system domains. The command uses dca(1M) as a proxy to gather the information from the domains.

This article discusses a specific condition where "showdevices -d <domain-tag>" command would fail as follows :

v4u-15ka-sc1:sms-svc:24> showdevices -d A
Unable to get device information from domain A

However, besides the above anomaly, all other interactions between the main system controller (SC) and the domain proceeds as expected:

SC -- rcfgadm -d <domain-tag> proceeds successfully
DR ops initiated from the SC -- addboard and/or deleteboard proceeds successfully
DR ops initiated from the SC -- rcfgadm -c disconnect and/or rcfgadm -c configure proceeds successfully
