C180 & btlan5 NIC

Hi all,

I have a C180 with a pci btlan5 card but it did not get 'recognized' during the fresh install of hp-ux 11.00. I see reference in libs to btlan3... but not btlan5. It is visible in ioscan:

lan 0 8/0/3/0 btlan5 UNCLAIMED UNKNOWN PCI Ethernet (10110019)

lan 1 8/16/6 lan2 CLAIMED INTERFACE Built-in LAN

...but it's UNCLAIMED. I don't see it in lanscan/lanadmin. Is there a patch which needs to be installed to get this card configured? Currently only the onboard 10MB connection is functioning.

Thanks,

Pete

Hi Peter,

UNCLAIMED UNKNOWN

You need to load the drivers for the lan card. There are located on the application disk 1. Once you load the drivers, the system will recognize the lan card and you can set it up.

It sounds like you first need to install the driver for btlan5. (HP PCI 100)

Hi Peter:

"Unclaimed" points to a missing driver. For 'btlan5' I believe you need products A5509BA and A5230A. These should be on the Application CDROMs.

Re: C180 & btlan5 NIC

Hi:

This is normal. It simply means that the device drivers are not loaded for this particular NIC. Mount the Application CD's and look for the Software. Typically, it's on the 1st CD of the Application Software.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: C180 & btlan5 NIC

all the answers about needing to load a driver are sopt-on. the card driven on 11.0 by the btlan5 driver is not a "core" interface and so was not made part of the core driver set in HP-UX 11. however, I _think_ that the unification of the 2114X-based 100BT card drivers in 11i helps that. so, another solution might be to install 11i instead of 11.0 :)
