Goal

In previous Oracle Document "StorageTek 8 Gb FC PCI-Express HBA, Emulex Installation Guide"

on page 4 is the request to install qlc patches for an Emulex HBA , which is completely wrong:

Operating System and Technology Requirements
The HBA requires the OS and technology levels listed in TABLE 1-2

Oracle Solaris OS for the SPARC (64-bit) platform
• Oracle Solaris 10 01/13 with patches 149175-02 and 145648-04

149175-02 and 145648-04 are qlc patches and not relevant for Emulex HBAs

 

Patch-ID# 149175-05 - Keywords: qlogic fibre channel qlogic qlc mdb macro - Synopsis: SunOS 5.10: qlc patch
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
pure qlc patch - not needed for any emulex HBA
Files included with this patch:/kernel/drv/qlc.conf - /kernel/drv/sparcv9/qlc - /usr/lib/mdb/kvm/sparcv9/qlc.so


Patch-ID# 145648-04 - Keywords: driver fcoe qlge - Synopsis: SunOS 5.10: qlge driver Patch
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
pure qlge patch (qlogic FCOE) - not needed for any emulex HBA

Files included with this patch: /kernel/drv/qlge.conf - /kernel/drv/sparcv9/qlge

 

But it is very important that you install the relevant Emulex Driver Patches, ie for sparc:

149173-04 5.10: emlxs driver patch [O] Emulex - Requires 144188-02
