Oracle's SPARC T8 and SPARC M8 Server Architecture

    I am interconnecting a SPARC T8-2 server (Solaris 11.4 SRU July 2021) with a Storage ZS5-2 using 2 "Oracle Dual Port QDR InfiniBand Adapter M3" cards. But when starting the server it throws me errors like the following "NOTICE: mcxnex0: fault cleared external to device; service unavailable" and when I try to create the partitions (dladm create-part .... ffff_ibp2) and the interface (ipadm create-ip ffff_ibp2), the latter does not finish.

    However, it does not show me any hardware failure.

    I have tried to update the firmware of the cards, however, I cannot find the packages (MOS) supported for SPARC T8-2, it gives me the message "Currently running on host type: SPARC T8-2

    ERROR: Metadata does not include support for this host "
