Symptoms

SPARC T7-x systems support a single model of 7319817 ethernet card based on the Fortville B1 silicon. The B0 silicon based card is not support on SPARC T7 systems.

When flashed with FCode 3.3 (or earlier) Solaris will incorrectly report the cards as the B0 variant which is not supported on SPARC T7.
