Problem with Quad Port Fast Ethernet Card in SS20

Unread postby jeremy123 » Tue Jan 03, 2012 5:14 pm

Hey guys I'm having issues installing Quad ethernet card in my SS20 - First thing is that in openboot after show-devs I can't see that card - does it mean its dead or should I try something else? Obviously in Solaris9 - no joy either.

I would be grateful for any help - thanks
Any Idea ?

thank you - I have tried that but no change...
no trace of any additional interfaces I'm going to assume its a dead piece of silicon.

Check the SBus connector. Sometimes pins get bent.

yes - that was my thought to - first thing I checked.
please tell me - I'm not sure about this but I asume that every piece of hardware should be shown in OB with show-devs - am I right ?
