Last updated on FEBRUARY 08, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 11 11/11 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
The same problem could not be reproduced on a T7-1 test system, although the T7-1 had half the number of cpu cores compared to the T7-2, which may be relevant for what seems to be a timing / synchronization issue.

Changes

 This problem occurred immediately following a new installation.
