Detailed Description

Overview

The Ethernet Port Configuration Tool (EPCT) is a command-line utility that allows users to change the link type of a device. The supported types are defined within the adapter's NVM. This utility displays only the devices that potentially support reconfiguration.

Note: An immediate reboot is required to apply configuration changes. On systems running Oracle* Solaris* 11, you must perform a full reboot, not a fast reboot.

Supported operating systems

  • Microsoft Windows Server*
  • Linux* Kernel
  • Red Hat* Enterprise Linux*
  • SUSE* Linux Enterprise Server
  • UEFI
  • Oracle* Solaris*
  • VMware* ESXi*
  • FreeBSD*

Notes: On systems running Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, or ESXi, the base driver must be present for EPCT to function correctly.
