Sun SPARC Enterprise Mx000 with active bge interface

The Sun SPARC Enterprise Server M4000, M5000, M8000 or M9000 can sporadically hang at boot time
a) if the system is part of Sun Cluster
and
b) if the system have a configured bge network interface


Example of boot hang:
...
Booting as part of a cluster
NOTICE: CMM: Node node1 (nodeid = 1) with votecount = 1 added.
NOTICE: CMM: Node node2 (nodeid = 2) with votecount = 1 added.
NOTICE: CMM: Quorum device 2 (/dev/did/rdsk/d7s2) added; votecount = 5, bitmask of nodes with configured paths = 0x3f.
NOTICE: clcomm: Adapter bge3 constructed
... now the system hang at this point ...


Solution: Install 138042-02 (or higher) of SunOS 5.10: MAC patch

I'm still mostly blogging around Solaris Cluster and support. Independently if for Sun Microsystems or Oracle. :-)
