The Qlogic QLA2340 HBA is a 64-bit, 133MHz PCI-X to 2 Gb Fibre Channel adapter. It’s a cool card, but it doesn’t work with the standard SUNWqlc and SUNWqlcx drivers. You have to remove these driver packages and install the one directly from QLogic in order to get it working.

# pkgrm SUNWqlc
# pkgrm SUNWqlcx

Now, download the QLogic drivers (qla2300.sparc_pkg.Z) HERE. Or HERE if you are not using SPARC Solaris.

Then, it’s just a matter of unzipping them, and installing them using the instructions that come with the drivers. The only bummer is that you won’t be able to use the luxadm commands anymore.

Hopefully this has been helpful. Have fun with your speedy new HBA.
