I'm so far happy with the hxge 10GbE ports this NEM provides, but it's a bit annoying that every time we install patches (presumably kernel updates), the system requires a second reconfigure reboot or else the hxge device does not show up. The VNEM is installed in NET1 (NET0 has the "passthru" 1GigE NEM). Is there any way to get this device to stick? The way it is requires too much manual intervention. I have used both Solaris 10 U7 and U8. There's no change.
