Sorry for the delay with the summary. We've only just received our
cards from Sun.
I asked about people's experiences with the SunLink Token Ring
Interface 3.0 for Solaris 2.x before we install a couple of cards
I received replies from...

Thankyou to all these people.
There are a number of mandatory patches available depending on the
version of the software in use. You should also apply all the Solaris
2.x mandatory patches (especially 101318-xx).
Version 3.0 requires 101357-01 TRI/S 3.0: Token Ring Jumbo patch
Version 3.0.1 requires 101751-05 TRI/S 3.0.1: Token Ring patch
These patches solve performance problems, interface hangs etc. You
also require a certain hardware revision level on the SBus card if you
intend to use the card in SPARCcentre 1000/2000 machines. You have to
check with Sun what level is required.
It was also rumoured that there will be a new version of the SBus card
at some time (V 3.1).
Our recent TRI/S Sun Express Europe order has an SBus card with a
hardware modification and came with Version 3.0.2 software. It does
not state what patches have been integrated into this release, but the
release notes seem to indicate that they have been integrated.
