Preparing for installation
If you are installing your operating system at this time, install your adapter before you install the
operating system. If you are installing only the device driver for this adapter, install your device driver
software before you install the adapter.
Installing the AIX device driver software
To install device driver software, follow the steps in "Installing the AIX device driver software" on page
Installing the adapter
For general instructions on how to install a PCI adapter, see the For instructions about installing PCIe
adapters, see Installing, removing, or replacing PCIe adapters (http://www.ibm.com/support/
knowledgecenter/POWER9/p9hak/pciadapters.htm) and select the system that you are working on.
topic. Return here to verify the adapter installation.
Verifying the adapter installation
To verify that your system unit recognizes the PCI adapter, do the following steps:
1. If necessary, log in as root user.
2. At the command line, type: lsdev -Cs pci
3. Press Enter.
A list of PCI devices is displayed. If the adapter is installed correctly, the status of available for each port
indicates that the adapter is installed and ready to use. If a message indicates that any of the ports are
defined instead of available, shut down your server and verify that the adapter was installed correctly.
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:
