This section contains frequently asked questions about using the XSCF.
Q: Are IP addresses assigned by default to the LAN ports used with the XSCF-LAN?
  1. A: No XSCF-LAN IP address is assigned by default for the IP addresses. For details on XSCF-LAN IP addresses, see "3.9.2  Understanding the XSCF Network Interfaces."

    If a control domain hangs up, do the following.
  2. 1. Execute the reset command with the panic option specified in the XSCF shell to give an instruction for an Oracle Solaris dump.
  3. 2. If the Oracle Solaris dump failed even though step 1. was performed, execute the poweroff command in the XSCF shell to turn off the power.
