Solaris Cluster 3.3 or 4.0 scinstall Does Not Recognize ixgbe Network Interface for Private Transport At Installation (Doc ID 1527593.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 07, 2022

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.3 to 4.0 [Release 3.3 to 4.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)


During Solaris Cluster 3.3 or 4.0 installation the scinstall command do not show up ixgbe interfaces as an option to select for Private Transport (cluster interconnect).

The auto discovery for the ixgbe driver for the Niantic X1109A-Z network interface card does not work.

This product is also called the Sun Dual 10GbE SFP+ PCIe 2.0 Low Profile Adapter with Intel 82599 10GbE Controller.

This will prevent scinstall to complete successfully.
