As part of my current job I inherited responsibility for running some
Intel solaris systems on Compaq 1600R hardware. The boxes themselves
have had a second NIC added but never configured. These cards use the
Now the problem. I've just rebooted the two machines to get them to
register the cards, not a task I can really do again as they run very
high traffic web sites and it tends to annoy rather a lot of people.
One of the boxes has detected the card quite happily, the other didn't.
The reason, I discovered, being a lack of driver in /kernel/drv.
So is there anyway of configuring this card without a reboot, and if not
do I just have to copy the drivers into /kernel/drv or will I need to
add the driver to a list somewhere ?
