After Solaris Patch and Reboot, Unable to See Oracle Emulex FC HBA
Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2016
Applies to:Emulex FC HBA - Version All Versions and later
SPARC T4-2 - Version All Versions and later
Solaris Operating System - Version 8 6/00 U1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Emulex FC HBA is not visible via 'fcinfo hba-port' or 'luxadm -e port' in OS after installing Solaris 10 Recommended Patch.
- prgdiag -v shows the Oracle Emulex FC HBA.
Looks like EMLXelxfc packages were installed but the system was not rebooted until after the Solaris patches were installed
You should be able to look at the pkginfo -l output to see the install dates for the EMLX* packages, the patch install dates in
EXPLORER patch+pkg/* and messages (or last boot history) to see when the system was rebooted. Those could confirm if
suggested explanation above is possible.
This is issue is documented in:
Bug 15729114 - SUNBT7067879 emlxs postinstall scripts must be updated for coexistence with new Emulex driver
