Appendix C Cards/On-Board Devices That Support SR-IOV
This appendix describes cards and on-board devices that support SR-IOV.
Use Oracle Solaris 11.1 or later on all logical domains to use the SR-IOV function. The logical domains of Oracle Solaris 10 have the following restrictions.
- The root domain does not support the SR-IOV function (Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.2).

- The I/O domain does not support the SR-IOV function (Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.3).

Therefore, use Oracle Solaris 11.1 or later with all logical domains to use the SR-IOV function. For details, see the Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.3 Administration Guide.
For OS version requirements of each logical domain that may use the virtualization functions of Oracle VM Server for SPARC, including the SR-IOV function, see the Fujitsu SPARC M12 Product Notes.
Table C-1 lists the SR-IOV supporting cards that have Fujitsu product IDs. Table C-2 lists the SR-IOV supporting cards that have Oracle product IDs.
