to improve system stability on Intel processor model 5400 when running Solaris 10 11/06 and Solaris 10 08/07 kernel patch 127112-05 should be applied. Patch 127112-05 is available at http://sunsolve.sun.com/show.do?target=patchpage

Limited to 32-bit support only.

  • In certain hardware configurations of these servers, processor hyperthreads may not be available under Solaris 10 1/06. The Solaris 10 6/06 release corrects this issue. 
  • In certain hardware configurations of these servers running the Solaris 10 1/06 release, some devices may not be recognized (such as the Smart Array controller) or Solaris may appear to hang during boot. A workaround for such symptoms is to set the "pci-reprog" option to a value of "off." This may be done on the GRUB "kernel" line (such as when booting Solaris from CD-ROM):

            kernel ... -B install-media=cdrom,pci-reprog=off

  • This option may need to be set during installation in order to successfully install the operating system. This option may also be persistently set using the eeprom (1M) command (once installation is complete). 
  • Kernel patch 118855-19 should be applied when running Solaris 10 1/06 or Solaris 10 6/06 on these servers in order to improve system stability when the following Intel Xeon processor models are used: 5110, 5120, 5130, 5140, 5150, and 5160.

The Embedded Ethernet adapter (NC326i with the Broadcom 5715s chipset) requires the Broadcom NetXtreme Ethernet controller driver for Solaris 10. The driver is available at:
