Sin = Solaris I thought you knew :-)

I've been a Solaris user for 10 years and an admin for 3 and I can  
tell you I'm still clueless with some things. For example I had a  
system that I moved and plugged into a different fiber connect. Well  
Sun's BootProm (there version of POST) helpfully changed the  
configuration of the FC card from 1000 full to autonegotiate. Funny  
thing really autonegotiate doesn't work in Solaris unless the other  
side is set to auto too. Makes sense doesn't it :-) Man I was  
scratching my head for 3 hours with a Sun engineer on the phone  
because an identical workstation (just different software installed)  
was at the new location and working fine, all of a sudden both  
wouldn't work. Anyways Solaris is rock solid just don't touch it  
unless you have a day to spare.
