Even with a valid support contract it took me a bit of trying to get my
account flagged to download firmware. If the hardware (or any of your Sun
hardware for that matter) is still in the warrenty period you can add it
on the contracts page to get firmware access. They finally fixed/added
that a couple months ago.


The second Sun Fire V40z listing has a footnote on BIOS that says
"Adds support for Opteron E4 stepping, DDR400 memory, NSV
diagnostics CD-ROM, and includes a workaround for AMD Errata #56."

I don't see anything about erratum 131.

Release notes appear to be in with the server docs.

Did you check the vmware compatability guide?
