    We need to use the PCI-E and the PCI-X slots to connect the Sun Netra
    T2000 to other multiple external interfaces. I assume we have to
    install some additional drivers so that the OS can recognize the newly
    configured/connected PCI-E and PCI-X slots. What package we have to
    install for this? Or, does the default Solaris release contain this?
    We have the following Solaris OS, on our T2000 machine:
    Solaris 10 1/06 s10s_u1wos_19a SPARC

    What are you installing? If it's Sun branded, just install, do a boot
    -r from the ok> prompt.

  3. The install should detect the hardware present and load any drivers
    available. If you plan to add hardware later be SURE to do the full
    install "+OEM" to get all the drivers available. The full install is a
    good idea anyway unless you are short of disk space. It can be a real
    pain to figure out what packages to install later if you do less than a
    full install now.

    I found that even the minimal install gets all available drivers.
