For the Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 OS releases, the latest updates will install the USBA1.0 kernel interfaces as part of a Dual Framework. The Dual Framework consists of two USB frameworks: the newer USBA 1.0 framework which supports USB 2.0 devices, and the original framework of the OS release. The original framework is included for compatibility purposes only and was mainly designed to be used for keyboards and mice. In the Dual Framework configuration, by default, the original framework supports devices connected to USB 1.x ports and the newer USBA 1.0 framework supports devices connected to USB 2.0 ports. To change the USB Dual Framework configuration, for example to run all USB ports with the newer USBA 1.0 framework, you will need to run the usbconfig script from: http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/scripts/sunScripts/usbconfig.txt If you are using a USB 2.0 device, please run usbconfig script and select the option ‘1’ that sets all USB ports to USBA1.0 Framework and then connect the device
