    Hi,

    I have a SunFire 280R with dual QUAD NICS.
    Does anyone know of any problems installing a third QUAD card?

    TIA.

    Jaws.

    Hi,

    Thanks for you reply.
    Did you have to run devfsadm after installing the 3rd quad.

    TIA.

    Jaws.

  4. In general, you do not need to run 'devfsadm' for use of SPARC ethernet
    interfaces. There is no additional device created in the filesystem.
