FreeBSD/OpenBSD Network driver for ProLiant BL460c G6

Dear folks,

I've installed OpenBSD 4.8 on my HP ProLiant BL460c G6 Server. This server is hosted on a Blade c7000 enclosure.
As we know that BL460c G6 has Broadcom 10G interface. And unfortunately OpenBSD(and FreeBSD) doesn't support this kind of ethernet card yet.
I tried to search the driver from HP website, but it just provide driver for Windows, Solaris and a several Linux type. there is no any BSD type supported.
Do you know where can I get driver for my OpenBSD(or freeBSD) server ?

Thanks for attention.

Hi,

HP ProLiant BL460c G6 Server has NC532i adapter.

There are no OpenBSD drivers available from HP but I would try Linux driver from Boradcom website.

http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/netxtremeii10.php

Hope this driver works.

Thanks

It was removed from FreeBSD and OpenBSD; the NetBSD implementation was nonfunctional until work leading up the 4.0 release made it viable again as a production file system.If you lost the data from any operating system based on BSD, this is time to recover lost data. In this way, you need to seek help from :- http://www.filesrecoverytool.com/bsd-data-recovery.html
