You have two choices.  1) manually edit the
/etc/path_to_inst and remove all instances of the sk
driver info & do a reconfigure boot. (make a backup
copy of /etc/path_to_inst in case you typo & your e250
doesnt boot!)  2) put the card back in its original

a deinstall & reinstall of the driver alone won't fix
the issue.

as to flashing the qla card under solaris - go to the
qlogic web site & download the firmware & instructions
on how to flash the card.  They're published & posted
for solaris as well as linux, windows etc etc.  Make
sure that you get the sparc binaries & not the intel
ones for solaris.

if it is a rebranded sgi card, it may or may not have
proprietary firmware on it - I don't remember.  But
I've flashed qla card between windows, linux & sparc
usually without any problems.
