Thanks to Tony Walsh and Doug Otto for their rapid response and 
informative replies.  The OBP for the Netra t 1125 is the same one as 
the U60/E220R, and the OBP for the Netra t 1400/1405 is the same as 
that of the U80/E420R.  

Tony further pointed out that you may want to record the NVRAM settings 
for banner-name, enclosure-type, pcia-probe-list and 
energystar-enabled? as some of these settings are different from those 
of the U60/U80 systems and they may change as a result of the update.   
For information on what these settings are by default, and how to 
set/reset them, look in the SunSolve Handbook section under General 
Info for Open Boot PROM Commands for general OBP commands.

Thanks again for this VERY helpful list.  Gotta go update some OBPs.

Subject: Netra 1125/1405 OBP updates?

We are in the process of setting up a couple of Sun Netra 1125s and 
Netra 1405s we recently acquired.  We want to bring the systems up to 
date on the OS and firmware patches before putting them into 
production.  I am having a heck of a time finding a Netra 1125-specific 
or Netra 1405-specific OBP for them on the Sun site.  

A Google search has located documentation that indicated the Netra 1125 
and the E220R share the same system board and the Netra 1405 shares the 
same system board with the E420R, but indicates nothing about the OBP.  
The README file that came with the E420R OBP 3.31 package indicates it 
is for the Sun Ultra, Sun Enterprise and Sun Ultra Enterprise Sun4u 
architecture only, and does not appear to make any mention of the Netra 
systems.  There are not even any mention of the word 'Netra' in the 
diagrams showing where the write-protect pins are located in the 
respective systems.

Can anyone tell me for certain whether or not the OBPs are the same, 
and/or where to specifically find OBP updates or documentation on the 
OBP for the Netra 1125 and Netra 14XX-series servers?  Thank you for 
any info.
