SUMMARY: Sun Cluster 3.1 1000Base-T (bge) Install

From: Gary Chambers <>
Date: Tue Jan 06 2004 - 14:25:41 EST

Many thanks to Val Popa <> for directing us to a core
cluster patch about which we were unaware.

Briefly, we installed 113713-11 (an updated pkgadd, etc.), then
installed 113801-06 (for Solaris 9) and rebooted.  We again executed
scinstall and it correctly verified and configured our bge interfaces
for our cluster.  We encountered (and ignored) some [seemingly] trivial
scinstall errors about unexpected package versions, and a few sccheck
errors about a non-existent /opt/SUNWexplo/bin/explorer utility, and
some missing XML documents.

Furthermore, I'd like to thank the following list members for their
"diligence" in keeping me apprised of their office absences:

Steve OBrien <>
"Eriksson (London), Christer" <>
Paul Clayton <>
Murray Robert-rmurra01 <>

AND FINALLY, here is the initial description of our problem:

> We're encountering problems installing Sun Cluster 3.1 onto a couple
> of our V240 servers.  It appears that scinstall is unable to recognize
> the bge interfaces to complete the install.  Is anyone aware of a
> problem with using the bge interface?  A Google search revealed little
> and Sun's documentation only generically states it's supported (i.e.
> with 1000Base-T adapters).  TIA
