Thank you. I have literally just been looking at this!
I have worked out a couple of patches that I can apply to the original boot environment.
I just need to make sure the ABE is patched to the same level regarding the emulex driver and then I think I'm good to try again.
How can I check the emulex driver version in my ABE (solaris 10 u11)?
Can I do something with lumount and somehow a showrev on the ABE?
As i haven't patched the ABE using
I can see the emulex driver is 149173-03 in the ABE.
So I will patch the original boot environment to this level.
See following docs as well:
Warning:1540: Firmware Update Required. (A Manual Hba Reset Or Link Reset (Using Luxadm Or Fcadm) Is Required (Doc ID 1318495.1)
Solaris 10 Fibre Channel (FC) SAN Booting setup guidelines [ID 1480481.1]
Had to patch server firmware level and then it booted from SAN - note I missed it but its a pre-requisite for solaris 10 u11.
Thanks for the advice
