instalar linux en sun microsystems netra x1



  • 1. Trunking 2 Network Interfaces
    Is it possible with Solaris 8 or 9 on an E450 to combine two gigabit interfaces into one for increased performance, provided our switch can combine to ports as well? (if anyone happens to know if Extreme Black Diamond switches support this) By combine I mean 1 IP address for both cards.. Thx, CC
  • 2. Sun Cluster 3.x & JASS Hardening
    Hello Sun guru's! We are planning to install a Sun Cluster 3.1 with Oracle 9i RAC on Solaris 9 (based on SUNWCXall meta cluster). I am wondering if the following drivers of JASS 4.0 are usable for such a configuration: suncluster3x-config.driver suncluster3x-hardening.driver suncluster3x-secure.driver Are there any obvious or less obvious problems I might encounter? Looking forward to receiving your comments. With best regards, Fred

    Hello, I have SUN 480R server as well as Sun StorEdge 3000 that has 5*72GB HDDs in it. When I use probe-scsi-all system displays all the drives fine.

1.Netra X1, Corrupt text received via serial connection


I have just got hold of a Sun Netra X1 and would like to install
Solaris 9 (or 10) onto it.

The problem I have is that when I connect to the serial console I get
the LOM prompt alright, but after typing some commands like "help" I
get back scrambled text with some parts recognizable. I am using a
Cisco serial cable which has the same pinout as the sun original cable
(I have also made up a cable as per the Sun spec in the netra manual).

I have also tried connecting to the server via a Linux server, a Sun
Sparstation 5 and a windows laptop (using a variety of software
hyperterm, kermit, etc). All have the same issue.

I'd be very grateful for any opinions, ideas, etc.

Thanks in advance.


2.Netra X1 - Can't open boot device


I'm rebuilding a Netra X1 with Solaris 8 2/02.....

I can build it off the network, and the build goes successfully.
However, when I reboot, and the box tries to boot from disk, it gives
me the following:

Boot device: /pci@1f,0/ide@d/disk@0,0   FIle and args:
Evaluating: boot disk

Can't open boot device


and then it tries to boot from the network again. Any thoughts? The
hardware is good, I just can't seem to point it to a good boot device.
Please help.

- Thanks,

4.Install Solaris on a Netra X1 server

Hi everybody,

I've got virtually no experince with Sun hardware, I've done some 
reading of documents from Sun's website.  I've got a Netra X1 and I want 
to install Solaris on it.  Can anyone point a good document that will 
guide me in doing this?  Thanks.


5.Simplest way to plug disks on a Netra x1

I've solved my "blinking spanner LED" problem, now I have
a brand new 400-MHz Netra that I would like to use to
install Oracle. But I'll need space: I only have a 20-gig
disk, and would like to know what is the simplest manner
to add disk space to this machine (as I said I know *nothing*
about Sun/Solaris configuration, and I wonder if there's a
way to plug a disk to this netra as easily as you plug an
USB external disk box to a PC...).

On the back of this machine I have 4 RJ-45 entries (A LOM,
B SERIAL, NET 0 and NET 1) plus 2 USB ports.

What advice could you please give me ?

Once again thanks for you help,
