Guys thanks for the quick response and very useful links.

Thanks to Handrik Visage, Tobias Nutt, Mike Weeks, Tomasz Ostrowski, fransisco roque (sorry if i've missed anyone.)

This was a concise reply :-


e1000g is just the driver name ( same as bge, nve are ). It does not change no matter what link speed you operate the interface(s) at.

Here is the output of dladm from one of my T5220s

 # dladm show-link
e1000g0 type: non-vlan mtu: 1500 device: e1000g0
e1000g1 type: non-vlan mtu: 1500 device: e1000g1
e1000g2 type: non-vlan mtu: 1500 device: e1000g2
e1000g3 type: non-vlan mtu: 1500 device: e1000g3

Here is the driver's man page:

But this also is very useful :-

 hi, e1000g is the name of the interface and the name depends on the driver, so it depends which version solaris 10 you will be installing. (06/06 or 08/07) find your server and find the Server Administration Guide document
