Checking the adapter installation
Verify that the system unit recognizes the PCIe LP POWER GXT145 Graphics Accelerator adapter.
At the AIX command-line type lsdev -Cs pci. If the PCIe LP POWER GXT145 Graphics Accelerator
adapter is correctly installed, the following is an example of the data that appears:
cor0 Available 0K-00 GXT145 Graphics Adapter
If the message indicates that the adapter is DEFINED instead of AVAILABLE, shut down the system unit
and check the PCIe LP POWER GXT145 Graphics Accelerator adapter to ensure that it is installed
correctly. If you continue to experience problems after following the steps in this section, contact service
and support for assistance.
Operating system or partition requirements
If you are installing a new feature, ensure that you have the software that is required to support the new
feature and that you determine whether any prerequisites must be met for this feature and attaching
devices. To check for operating system and partition requirements, see one of the following links:

PCIe LP 8 Gb 2-Port Fibre Channel Adapter (FC 5273; CCIN 577D)
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FCs) 5273 adapter.
The PCIe LP 8 Gb 2-Port Fibre Channel Adapter is a high-performance adapter based on the Emulex
LPe12002 PCIe Host Bus Adapter (HBA). The FCs 5273 is a low-profile adapter. Each port provides single
initiator capability over a fiber link. The ports have LC type connectors that use shortwave laser optics.
The adapter connects to Fibre Channel switches and direct attached storage devices, operating at link
speeds of 2, 4, and 8 Gbps. The adapter automatically negotiates with the switch to the highest speed that
the switch is capable of. LEDs on each port provide information about the status and link speed of the
N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) capability is supported through Virtual I/O Server (VIOS).
