For PCI adapters, SLOT is derived from bus number and device location as defined by the PCI specification. One way to determine the slot number is to load the driver from the command line. You'll be prompted with valid device number(s) for the adapter(s). Select one of them. Syntax: SLOT=n (n = 1,2,3,4,...) 2.NODE Specifies a local administered address (LAA) unique to each adapter. Use this option to provide your own unique node address for the adapter. The node address is a 12-digit hexadecimal number; the second digit must be one of the following digits: 2, 6, A, E. Syntax: NODE=xnxxxxxxxxxx n = 2, 6, A, E x = hexadecimal number Default: The adapter's assigned address. 3.MEDIATYPE Specifies the mediatype that is currently used.
