Some 3rd party drivers can panic after upgrading to Solaris 11.4 SRU30 or later (Doc ID 2756820.1)

Last updated on JULY 06, 2023

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11.4 to 11.4 [Release 11.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Servers that have been recently upgraded to Solaris 11.4 SRU30 or Solaris 11.4 SRU31 can suffer a BAD TRAP panic occurring in 3rd party driver code.

Some examples of panic string and stack are shown below.

Solaris engineering has made changes to a kernel interface that is not documented as part of the DDI/DKI.

Those changes do not need to be made public, because 3rd party drivers shouldn't be using the interface.

3rd party drivers using such interfaces are at risk of suffering panics if Solaris engineering decides to change the interface.
