Solar XVR-300 Graphics Accelerator Temporary

Putting in the Solar XVR-300 within the PCIE0 Connector

Suppose you put in a Solar XVR-300 graphics catalyst within the x8 connection, PCI-E0, ( forcible slot No. 2 ), you could set up OpenBoot trademark PROM adaptation 4.25.7 or a subsequent suitable free time. That is necessity for each the Extremely 25 and Extremely 45 workstations .

Variety of Supported Graphics Accelerators and Minimal OS Variations

enhancing to 2 Solar XVR-300 graphics accelerators are supported on Solar Extremely 45 and Extremely 25 workstations. The graphics accelerators require Solaris trademark 10 1/06 function System ( OS ) or former, or Solaris 9 9/05 HW OS or {late} .

Annotation – You could set up packages wanted for the cardboard to run on Solaris 10 1/06 or later from the software program CD-ROM that ships with the Solar XVR-300. Seek advice from the Solar XVR-300 Graphics Accelerator Person’s Information, 819-6651.

Bettering Efficiency of Playing cards Put in in Connector PCIE2

Suppose you’re experiencing any issues with playing cards put in in connection PCIE2, carry out the comply with procedures .
1. Uninstall the software program drive for the cardboard .
2. Transform the calling card to connector PCIE1 .
3. Reinstall the software program drive whereas the cardboard is put in in connection PCIE1 .

Annotation – You may go away the cardboard in PCIE1 or transform it again to PCIE2.

Putting in DIMMs within the Identical {Bank}

Description DIMMs put in within the lapp {bank} should be from the like DIMM producer, and have the reclaim lapp {size} and shape form .

Keyboard and Mouse Connections with Solar XVR-2500

When the workstations had been first launched, the keyboard needed to be linked to the again panels. {late}, again was added due to this fact that the keyboard might be linked to the entrance repression panel USB ports .
nonetheless, suppose you might have put in a Solar XVR-2500 graphics catalyst in both PCIE1 or PCIE2, you could make friends the keyboard to the again panel. The mouse may be linked to the entrance repression panel USB connection .

procedure icon  To Apply Patches to the Boot Disk

1. Decide whether or not the patches have been put in in your system .
For case, utilizing the showrev command, sort the next :

# showrev -p | grep "Patch: 118822"

  • Suppose you see patch info listed for the queried patch, and the sprint extension (the final two digits) matches or exceeds the required model, your system has the right patches already put in and no additional motion is required.

Term, suppose patch 118822-23 or later is put in, your system has the wanted model of this eyepatch .

  • Suppose you don’t see patch info listed for the queried patch, or suppose the sprint extension precedes the required model, go to Step 2.

For case, suppose no adaptation of the 118822 spot, or a model with an extension of
-22 or earlier is put in, you could obtain and set up the brand new mend .
2. Go to http : // to obtain the patches .
Utilizing the SunSolve PatchFinder instrument, specify the bottom patch ID rely ( the primary gear six digits ) to entry the stream {release} of a eyepatch .
3. Observe the initiation {instructions} supplied in a particular patch ’ s README file .

Annotation – Further details about the most recent patches could also be discovered at:

Recognized Points

  • – fmdump -v command
  • – fmadm config command
  • 9.3.3 – Utilizing the fmstat command
  • 12.3.2 – OpenBoot Diagnosis Menus

part 3.2.4, “ Putting in the DIMMS ”, the Annotation was incorrect. The right Annotation is proven right here :

Annotation – Suppose your workstation has two CPUs and 4 DIMMs, the workstation operates most series effectively with two DIMMs per CPU. DIMM connectors are color-coded blue and black. You could set up DIMMs in pairs in the identical coloration connectors. DIMMs in the identical {bank} should be from the identical vendor and should be an identical in {size}.
