Issue with LOM channel after firmware and driver update

Nick had an issue:




Hi all,


I have a really weird issue after updating the firmware and drivers on a BL460c G7 in a c3000 running VMware 5.1


The BL460c g7 has the embedded NC553i and  Mezzanine card NC532M, connected via VC-Flex 10 modules.


After updating the firmware and drivers to match the VMware recipe document we are unable to perform a vMotion or VMKping to 1 channel of the embedded LOM (LOM1:b). If we change the vMotion network to LOM:1:c) VMKping works.


Has anyone ever seen anything like this before?




Nick did resolve the issue:




This turned out to be a problem with the online firmware flash of the Emulex CNA. Despite both the online and offline SPP’s saying the firmware had been done, and ESX seeing the correct firmware, we noticed that the  PXE boot code portion had not been updated for some reason. We re-applied the Emulex firmware offline, and after this the PXE BOOT banner showed the correct version, and our original issue with LOM1:B not working cleared.
