'cfgadm -alv' Shows a 'When' Date of "Jan 1 1970" or "Dec 31 1969" for the IOUs (Doc ID 1367395.1)

Last updated on JULY 23, 2012

Applies to:

Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 10 8/11 U10 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)

Symptoms

Running 'cfgadm -alv' or 'cfgadm -alv ap_id' on systems which have IOU (IO Units) will report incorrect dates for the 'When' column.  The When column represents the status_time field when the last change was made to the Ap_Id.

Example:

$ cfgadm -alv
