Goal

This document helps clarify the current Solaris usb drivers. It identifies both the original and newer Dual Framework drivers and the devices they support.

Use it to help troubleshoot a usb problem. Confirm the correct usb driver is loaded/not loaded for the particular device by checking messages log for the driver.

Ex.

If installing USB to Serial adapter check messages file to make sure usbser_edge0 is listed and online after attaching the usb to serial device. Should it not be listed but usba10_usb_mid is listed this would be incorrect. This is the default driver when the correct class driver is not available.
Class compliant devices need to have a class driver to work.

Correct.
/pci@1f,0/usb@c,3/device@1/interface@0 (usbser_edge0) online

Incorrect.
/pci@1f,0/usb@c,3/device@1/interface@0 (usba10_usb_mid) online
