Step 2. Install the Host Bus Adapter Hardware

NOTE: When installing the QLogic host bus adapter and driver in a Solaris system that does not already have QLogic host bus adapters or drivers installed, please install the QLogic Solaris driver before you install the QLogic host bus adapter hardware. This allows Solaris to correctly bind the QLogic Solaris driver to the QLogic host bus adapter. Failure to do so will require an additional system reboot after the driver is loaded.

To install the host bus adapter hardware, you need to open the computer and locate the appropriate bus slot. If necessary, consult your computer system manual for instructions to remove the computer cover.

Depending on the host bus adapter you are installing, the bus connector will look like one of the following samples:
