Ahhhh. Ok ... then in that case I should put: "Sun Fire 2200/4150/4450 with ELOM" I didn't understand that it was an ELOM thing. > Also, the `reported to be fixed in a later > release' is from at least a year ago, according to CVS, and it hasn't > happened yet as far as I can tell; Fair point. It's a phrase that I've added to many workarounds as long as the vendor says that they are working on it. I think I'll remove it. > I think it's at least worth saying > it's not fixed as of 184.108.40.206. I generally dislike documenting version numbers in b/c they can be out of date very quickly. Also, how are you getting the firmware version number? B/c the IPMI way to get version numbers doesn't have that much detail. # > /usr/sbin/bmc-info | grep sion Device Revision: 1 Firmware Revision: 2.00 IPMI Version: 2.0 Aux Firmware Revision Info: 302h > I could see if my hardware-oriented HPC Sun contact knows any more if > that would be helpful. Ok, hopefully we can get more clarifications.
