Problem Summary

Emulex FC HBA is not visible via 'fcinfo hba-port' or 'luxadm -e port' in OS after installing Solaris 10 Recommended Patch.

Symptoms

- 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
