Gigabit ethernet card support for N4000 server HP-UX 11.00

Hi All,

I have a N4000 server with a 10/100 Mbps card.
I need to have a gigabit ethernet connectivity for this server. Does anyone know if gigabit ethernet card is supported at all on a N4000 server running HP-UX 11.00 ?
If yes which model.

Thanks a lot,
Ninad

According to http://partsurfer.hp.com, there are two possible cards. One is for fiber-optic cable, the othe is for the usual copper cable with RJ-45 connectors. Which type of cable do you intend to use?

1000Base-SX fiber: A4926A

1000Base-T copper: A4929A

To get this information: Go to partsurfer.hp.com, search with "N4000" as "model number or name". When you get the product information page for N4000, select the parts listing by keyword "Interface (Product)". You'll get a listing of all network interfaces compatible with a N4000, whether Ethernet, FibreChannel, FDDI or X.25.

Ninad,

Support matrix for GbE is here:

http://docs.hp.com/en/supportmatrixEthernetJune05.pdf/supportmatrixEthernetver1June05.pdf

Looks like some cards do work in rp7400 (N4000) - A6825A would do the trick...

Thank you very much friends.
Just a small doubt -
is A4929A supported HP-UX 11.00
is A6825A supported on N-Class 11.00

I was searching the net for this, got some docs, but still had this confusion, so thought of clarifying this with you guys.

Points are on their way - as I dont want to give less points now as well as dont want to indicate it as resolved by giving more points. Hope you understand.

Thanks,
Ninad

Ninad,

Looking at the table in the release notes I pointed ypu at, you will see that the 4th column lists the name of the driver required for various versions of HP-UX for that card. If the OS is listed there with a driver, then its supported. Looking at the 2 cards mentioned it looks like A6825A is supported on 11.00 with driver igelan, and A4929A is supported on 11.00 with driver gelan.

So yes, both of them work with HP-UX11.00 (11.00 is just going out of support - you do know that yes?)
