Problem installing Solaris 8 02/02 on "2nd" disk



  • 1. error with mpt0
    Hello I have just installed solaris 10 on 3 x4200's one of them is complaining with the message mpt0: unknown event 16 received I think this could be a disk problem? But im not sure. I cant see which disk it is if thats the case As from /etc/path_to_inst "/pci@0,0/pci1022,7450@2/pci1000,3060@3" 0 "mpt" "/pci@0,0/pci1022,7450@2/pci1000,3060@3/sd@0,0" 3 "sd" "/pci@0,0/pci1022,7450@2/pci1000,3060@3/sd@1,0" 4 "sd" "/pci@0,0/pci1022,7450@2/pci1000,3060@3/sd@2,0" 5 "sd" "/pci@0,0/pci1022,7450@2/pci1000,3060@3/sd@3,0" 6 "sd" So does this mean the disk controller is giving the error? Thanks for any pointers
  • 2. /etc/inittab will not respawn a process
    Having a weird problem with a couple Solaris 8 servers. Our tivoli Scheduler daemon is started by the inittab with the following: ts:234:respawn:/opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsmc sched > /dev/null 2>&1 # TSM Scheduler daemons startup an all but 4 or 5 servers, it starts the daemon and will restart it if it dies or is killed. these 4 or 5 servers, it never even starts the daemon. I have rebooted them, and the daemon never starts there is no difference in permissions and ownership of the daemon executable and the inittab file between the servers. Any ideas of where to start looking? nothing in the /var/adm/messages either. Thanks

Problem installing Solaris 8 02/02 on "2nd" disk

Postby terry.haebich » Thu, 25 Sep 2003 16:10:05 GMT

I have a Sun Blade 150 with two 36Gb disks. I installed Solaris 8
02/02 on c0t0d0s0 ok (disk 0). As part of this installation, I setup
/spareroot (removed it's entry from /etc/vfstab), swap and /export
partitions on c0t2d0s# (disk 1).
I then tried to install Solaris 8 into c0t2d0s0 of disk 1 but my
following procedure did not work:
When you get to specify the partitions, do not specify any on c0t0d0
(disk 0), and match those previously set on c0t2d0 (disk 1) except
instead of /spareroot on c0t2d0s0, set it as /. When you get to the
stage of the software actually being installed off the cd, within a
second, the screen displays the progress indicator as 100% complete
followed by the # prompt. No software is installed on c0t2d0s0.
Booting and running off disk 0 is ok.
What am I doing wrong?
TIA, Terry

1.Solaris 8 02/02 to Solaris 8 02/04

If you install the 02/02 version, how do you upgrade to the 02/04

Is it a case of just patching or do you need to do an upgrade install
with the 02/04 CDs?

2.install problems with Solaris 8 2/02 and serial console


I have had a rather long weekend reinstalling and restoring (from slow
tapes) one of our servers but for some reasons the installation would
always fail at the same spot: after booting from software 1/2 and answering
all the question about system being networked, IP address, name services
and time zones, the installation would simply stop (with please wait
message) and I always had to restart the machine at that point (a wait or
an hour or so should be enough for the system to pick up where it stopped,
right?). After a couple of reboots, I figured it would be easier to press
^C, delete /tmp/.suninstall and type suninstall to get the actual
installation done. That would work, until the reboot, where machine noticed
that not everything was configure and would start sysconfig (or whatever)
and ask questions about system being networked, IP address, name services
etc etc after which it would simply hang (or so it seems). 

At the end, I had to reboot the machine in a single user mode, enter all
the information manually (/etc/nsswitch.conf, /etc/TIMEZONE etc etc). 

After that, everything worked fine.

The machine in question (E220R) is a headless one with a "real" serial
console attached to it, but the same thing happens if I attach it to a
console server. 

Why is this happening? Is there something in the inital configure utility
that stops the terminal? How can I avoid this problem if it happens again?
Is it only me?

3.sunblade 1000, solaris 8 (02/02) and recommended patches

Hi - got me a problem.

Sunblade 1000 - vanilla install of solaris 8 (02/02 - everything plus
OEM).  Applied latest recommended patches (downloaded from sunsolve
just last week).

Box boots fine, and is avialbel on the network.  Then after maybe 30
minutes or so it just dies - powers itself off!

I wondered if it was because of the "power saving stuff" so I ran
un-sysconfig and re-did the usual stuff...  but I noticed it deffo
didn't ask me about power-saving options.  So I have no idea of this
is what is occuring or not!

There is nothing shown in the messages file.  The following was shown
on the console (well, laptop and hyperterminal session!)

ultra25 console login:
RED State Exception

   TPC=0000.0000.0000.0000  TnPC=0000.0000.0000.0004 

Has anybody any ideas?   The company that owns this box (I'm a
contractor) has no sun maintenenace on it (or any other sunblade 1000
come to that!) so I can't call Sun for any ideas.



4.How to find whether Solaris 8(02/04) or Solaris 8(02/02) ?

How do I find out whether the OS running in my machine is 'Solaris
8(02/04)' or 'Solaris 8(02/02)' ?

5.Solaris 8 2/02 to Solaris 8 2/04

OK. I originally installed Solaris 8 2/02 and then downloaded and
installed all exisiting patches.

How do I 'upgrade' to Solaris 8 2/04? I thought it was just a case of
installing all the patches but, obviously not. Do I need to get a
Solaris 8 2/04 CD and upgrade over the top of the existing installation?

6. [PATCH 02/02 V3] net/ipv6: seperate sit driver to extra module (addrconf.c changes)

7. [PATCH 02/02] USB: add dynamic id functionality to USB core

8. [PATCH 02/02] Process Events - License Change
