DL580G7 NC522SFP w/integrated SPI NC375i connections pxe loop

We have several DL580G7 systems with the REVB 591199-001 NC375 integrated spi card and a pci NC522sfp dual port 10gig card. When the onboard gigabit cat6 is connected to a switch a long with a 10gig connection the system pxe loops and then hangs. I didnt see any options to disable pxe off of one of the 10gig ports from the latest firmware executable however older versions appeared to have some compatibility. CP017665/CP017666.scexe were the latest updates we've tried.

 

QLogic/NetXen Network Driver v4.0.65

firmware v4.0.590

 

375i output:

driver: netxen_nic
version: 4.0.65
firmware-version: 4.0.579
bus-info: 0000:04:00.0

 

522 output:

driver: netxen_nic
version: 4.0.65
firmware-version: 4.0.590
bus-info: 0000:08:00.0

 

wasn't sure if anyone had any odd suggestions we could try. Right now we're looking to have the 375i left as an eth0 interface and use the 522 as eth4 which it appears to map to.

Hi

 

Which operating system is installed on server?

Can you give us the version of BIOS installed on the server?

OS: a custom rhel5.3 os w/patches and 2.6.18-194.3.1.e15 kernel (due to driver restrictions). We've also tried kernel 2.6.18-348.1.1.el5.

 

bios: P65 (05/03/2012) - SP57554.exe

 

ilo: 1.28 - CP016462.scexe

 

onboard controller: p410i 5.70 - CP017183.scexe

 

we've actually filed a somewhat similar hp case but had no help with that issue as we have certain automation scripts in place.

Can you provide more info on the "PXE looping" problem you are experiencing? Is the system rebooting to PXE instead of booting to the hard disk?
