Original Question:

I have a QLogic 2300 card in a SF V440. I am trying to
install SecurePath but the card is not seen by Solaris
8. (It is seen at OBP level)
At my last job I had a similar problem which I fixed
by setting the speed at the OBP level. *The card is
set to autoneg but I need to force it to 1 gig)
Unfortunately I could not keep my notes from that job
and cannot for
the life of me remember how to set the speed.
Has anyone got notes on how to do it. I have spent 2
hours scouring google with no luck.
