Before a user installs Oracle Solaris 11, it would be helpful to know which devices the solution supports. In a recent blog post, Rick Ramsey explains how this can be determined. Consulting the x86 Device List (part of the Oracle Solaris Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) will reveal that information, Ramsey writes, listing the steps to access the table that will list all the devices of that type that are supported by Solaris 11, including PCI ID and vendor.
- Open the Device List.
- Scroll down to the table.
- Open the "Select Release" pull-down menu and pick "Solaris 11 11/11."
- Move over to the "Select Device Type" pull-down menu, and pick the device type. Or "All."
Ramsey says to expect the addition of yet other devices in the near future, which will be posted on the Solaris HCL.
