I recently ordered the (new?, inexpensive) "PCI UltraSCSI single-ended
host adapter [single-channel model]" from Sun for our Ultra 5-- BUT I
am dismayed to find, now that it has arrived, that according to its
manual it will require "Solaris 2.6 5/98." What we have is Solaris 2.6
Hardware 3/98 (with kernel patch 105181-09)-- i.e., 3/98 rather than
Basically I am wondering, what are the odds that we may be able to get
away with our HW 3/98 release (plus kernel patch) & this SCSI card, &
not have to reinstall the whole OS ? (And what are the odds that we
might damage something by trying ?)
I see from Sunsolve that there is a "kernel/misc/scsi patch"
(106173-03)-- might that be helpful in our situation ? That one is NOT
yet applied here.
Thanks very much for any insights or pointers,
