SUMMARY: Sun branded Emulex HBA

Thanks for all the replies. Most replies recommended using prtdiag and
looking at the pci device name. An LP10000-S for example would be a
Sun card.

I've found another method is to install the EMLXemlxu package. See
tha output below. This utility can be used to select the Sun emlxs
driver of the lpfc driver for the emulex card. Note - Sun branded
emulex cards can only use the emlxs driver.

Do a "prtdiag -v". If you get smth like :

PCI 8 A 0 66 66 1,0 ok SUNW,emlxs-pci10df,fc00/fp (fp)

then the "S" at the end of the card model tells you that you have a SUN
branded HBA.

Hello List,

I have an LP10000 installed in a Sun 280r. How can I determine whether
the card is an Emulex card or a Sun branded card and is there any
difference between the two?
