Sparc2 with 2nd ethernet adapter ??

Post by Steve Scot » Mon, 08 Mar 1999 04:00:00

Hi all,
I have a Sparc2 with a Redhat4.1 installation (kernal 2.0.27)
I installed a Sun 501-1450 Sbus card as a 2nd ethernet interface.
at boottime, the prom (ver 2) recognizes it, and so does the kernel,
eth0, eth1....although same mac address, heard this was ok tho'.
Eth0 (onboard) works fine.
Can not get eth1 to work

I know how to set up an interface,networks,  static routing, etc.
Anyone tried this with the 501-1450 ?    Any hardware related tips I

1. Unable to boot Sparc2.6 after installed Sparc2.7

Greeting, I have Sun Ultra 10 Sparc system. After install sparc 2.7
evalution copy on a new HD, my system is now having problem to boot
from the original HD with 2.6 Sparc Solaris. The error message is as

Can't read disk label
Can't open disk label package

cprbooter cpr boot
Can't read disk Label.
Can't open disk label package

Now I can only boot the HD with Solaris 2.7 OS, the HD with Solaris 2.6
is no longer bootable. Above message is the problem i am having.

My goal is to have two OSs, Sparc2.6 and Sparc2.7, running on my Ultra
Sparc 10 and swapping the HDs when I need to running from one of these

I wonder if anyone has smiliar problem and how I could resolve this

Any help would be greatly appriciated.. Thx
