DL560Gen8 + NC552SFP - UMC

Hi all

 

We have some new DL560Gen8 servers with NC552SFP NICs (Emulex). I've read on some forums that users have Universal Multi-channel working, but I cannot find any place to set this up.

 

Basically we want to split each port into two virtual NICs - one of 8gbit and one of 2gbit.

 

You are supposed to be able to enable the function through CTRL+P (PXE boot) setup during boot, but I don't see anything relevant there. I also don't see anything under One Command Manager (we are using Windows Server 2012).

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

HI

  • For PXE it must be configured under RBSU

 

  • I give you also this link for HP ProLiant DL Servers - Boot Methods

Hi

 

The card seems to be working in 2012 just fine (except for not having this feature).

 

Please refer to this video:

Forward to 2:11 - I wish to know how to access that configuration screen. 

 

Thanks
