I have installed Solaris 11 Express on my machine. When I boot the system I see a "one or more devices have been retired" message. All connected hard discs should be alright (all zpools are online according to the status messages).
What exactly does that message mean and how do I find out which device has been retired?
It might bring more details about the issue. but that message indicates hardware that had too many errors while booting and the system disabled the device to prevent any future errors occuring due to it. Most likely a NIC PCI device.
I checked out the Solaris HCL - x86 Device List and did not find the 8086,3408 PCI ID there. Does that mean that the Intel 7500 Chipset PCIe Root Port is not supported by Solaris 11 and there is no way to make the device work?
am writing a script to get the device id of i/o devices on solaris. The command
iostat -iE works well on Solaris 5.9 and 5.10 but fails on solaris 5.8 as there is no 'i' switch with iostat command on this os
Can anyone suggest me an alternate way to find device id information on... (3 Replies)
