Solaris Cannot Boot due to HW Issue With FC Tape Device (Doc ID 1970275.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 08, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 11.2 to 11.2 [Release 11.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Customer is unable to boot Solaris 11.2 systems when tape library IBM SL3500 was configured on the SAN and seen by these hosts.

After update to Solaris 11.2 latest SRU , system doesn't boot and get below error messages. Then, it goes maintenance mode. We have also tried before beadm env to boot OS. But it didn't work also.

 

 

Changes

On two different hosts, update to solaris 11.2 SRU 6.5 and SRU 3.5
But customer is not able to boot on the original BEs (Boot Enviroments) as well , so the Solaris update should not be the problem.
