Step 2. Install the HBA Hardware
NOTE:
When installing the QLogic HBA and driver in a Solaris system that does not already have QLogic HBAs or
drivers installed, please install the QLogic Solaris driver before you install the QLogic HBA hardware. This allows Solaris
to correctly bind the QLogic Solaris driver to the QLogic HBA. Failure to do so will require an additional system reboot
after the driver is loaded.
To install the HBA hardware, you need to open the computer and locate the appropriate bus slot. If necessary, consult
your computer system manual for instructions to remove the computer cover.
Depending on the HBA you are installing, the bus connector will look like one of the following samples:
PCI-X
PCI Express
QLA4050
N/A
QLA4050C
QLE4060C
QLA4052C
QLE4062C

1.
Power off the computer, then disconnect the power cable.
2.
Remove the computer cover and find an empty bus slot.
3.
Pull out the slot cover (if any) by removing the screw or releasing the lever.
