Emulex FC HBA - Version Not Applicable and later
All Platforms


This document describes how to determine if a fiber-channel HBA in a Solaris[TM] Operating System is a Sun branded FC HBA or a Emulex branded FC HBA. This is important for determining supportability of the HBA. The reference document to use now to identify the brander is Solaris: How to Identify Oracle[TM] Branded Fibre Channel (FC) HBA, CNA/FCoE and Universal 16GB HBA Cards and Their Slot Locations (Doc ID 1282491.1), however this document is kept published because it provides an easy and efficient way to identify a non-branded Emulex HBA for former SUN servers
