DL380 RHAS2.1: Broadcom NICs not detected.

on lspci
I see 2: BROADCOM Unknown Device 16a7

ifconfig only reports lo

I tried loading insmod bc5700 without success.
It reports a load fails and suggests fiddling with io and irq.

Using Redhat AS 2.1.
Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill

Re: DL380 RHAS2.1: Broadcom NICs not detected.

You need to specify more information about the distribution and kernel you are using, but try doing "insmod tg3" and "service network restart".

If that works, then download the latest version of bcm5700 from the HP website:

http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/20074.html

This driver supports the NC7781.

For the lspci problem, I would need to see the output of "lspci -vv" to see the sub vendor and sub device ids to determine the exact nics you are using. My guess is that you are using a DL380g3. This server has integrated dual NC7781 nics. If you download and install the current version of the pci.ids file, lspci will report the correct information.

You can get the file from:

http://pciids.sourceforge.net/

No joy there:
insmod tg3
insmod: tg3: no module by that name found

I've just installed a few multiport lan card on a pci slot, so it's less of an issue now.

I also installed and downloaded the bcm5700 drivers from hp site, but they wouldn't compile:

+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ cd bcm5700-7.1.9a
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/bcm5700-7.1.9a
+ make bcm5700.o
gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -DDBG=0 -DT3_JUMBO_RCV_RCB_ENTRY_COUNT=256 -DNICE_SUPPORT -DPCIX_TARGET_WORKAROUND=1 -DINCLUDE_TBI_SUPPORT -DINCLUDE_5701_AX_FIX=1 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -I/lib/modules/2.4.7-10smp/build/include -c -o b57um.o b57um.c

Re: DL380 RHAS2.1: Broadcom NICs not detected.

Its normal, I had the same trouble.

Just download the newest source and re-install.
I dont remember the URL on the HP site.

Re: DL380 RHAS2.1: Broadcom NICs not detected.

2.4.7-10 is an old RH7.2 kernel. It is not an RHAS 2.1 kernel. The driver I pointed you to are for the latest errata of AS2.1/RH7.2 kernels.

If your are running RH7.2, please upgrade to at least the 2.4.20-20 errata kernel.

If you are running RHAS 2.1, please upgrade to at least the 2.4.9-e.27

Re: DL380 RHAS2.1: Broadcom NICs not detected.

Sorry, didnt see you tried building bcm5700 sources. So, like Bill said, update your kernel.

if you want to work with RHEL 2.1, I recommend to dw update3 CDs and install system from them.

Re: DL380 RHAS2.1: Broadcom NICs not detected.

Wasn't there an issues with the Broadcom Firmwares lately ?

Have you checked that you have the latest Broadcom firmware and HP Drivers ?

Re: DL380 RHAS2.1: Broadcom NICs not detected.

Thanks all,
can confirm that a kernel upgrade works just fine.
What was a pain, was that all my nic instances were shitfed (static ips) when the nics came up as eth0/eth1.
It works for me (tm)

Re: DL380 RHAS2.1: Broadcom NICs not detected.
