General Notes: Non-standard BIOS Setting:
There is no support for UEFI in Solaris. Booting/Installing over the net is accomplished via legacy support on the network interface.

To configure an interface for legacy support:
Select Setup as the system is booting -> Select System Settings ->Select Network -> Select PXE Configuration -> Select Port -> Go to the Enable PXE item -> Change entry to Legacy Support

x3850 X5 hangs intermittently on reboot at UEFI screen and the bottom part of the UEFI screen keeps on blinking. This issue is seen when "Remote Console Redirection" is enabled, and it works fine when it is disabled.

The certified system was configured with the following.
- 4U Rack Server Chasis
- ServerRAID MR5015 SAS/SATA (PN #46M0829) controller in a RAID 5 configuration.
- Emulex 8Gb FC Dual-Port HBA(42D0494)
- Intel Pro1000 PT Dual-port ethernet adapter(39Y6126)
