The problem with the network card driver HP NC510C 10G Ethernet Adapter

The problem with the drivers on the map HP NC510C 10G Ethernet Adapter.
OS: SLES 11 SP 2 (64 bit)
Drivers take from here:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3244089&...

Successfully compiled version and 4.0.588-2 4.0.585-2. Other versions are not compiled, will generate an error.
Here is the log load driver:

I can not find the error description:

kernel: [25840.782962] nx_nic: unm_nic_probe: Minidump setup failed, rcode=17.

As a result, traffic on the card is sent.
Everything worked on SLES 10 SP 4 (32 bit). Then I updated the OS to SLES 11 SP 2 (64 bit)

Here is the information on the card and the drivers who tried to load:

 Board Type   : 0xf (HP NC510C 10G Ethernet Adapter)
 Firmware ver.: 3.4.339
 Driver ver.  : 4.0.585
and
 Board Type   : 0xf (HP NC510C 10G Ethernet Adapter)
 Firmware ver.: 3.4.339
 Driver ver.  : 4.0.588

 

If anyone encountered this problem tell me what to do.

Interesting issue.

Have you tried Suse support already?

In support of SUSE did not apply because the problem is in the drivers. Native driver from the package system does not work and I'm not surprised.
I downloaded the driver is compiled and officially launched. The resulting map is worth good money is still not working: (
In support of HP addressed. First level support could not help shereshnii issue and sent in support of the second level which was paid.
Surely no one can help me?

Surely no one can help me in this matter? I think there are experts in this matter. Offer at least options ... Really I should not buy this card .....

Re: The problem with the network card driver HP NC510C 10G Ethernet Adapter

Problem solved.

The card was installed on a different server running Windows Server 2003 and there is stitched latest firmware 3.4.337 (managed to flash only the third attempt). To do the same under Linux was not possible due to a failure of the program for the firmware.

Now when you boot a Linux get the following output:

nx_nic 0000:0 b: 00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
nx_nic 0000:0 b: 00.0: setting latency timer to 64
nx_nic: Flash Version: Firmware [3.4.337], BIOS [1.0.2]
nx_nic: File FW [nxromimg.bin] version [3.4.339:0]
nx_nic: Failed to get minidump template size, err_code: 17
nx_nic: unm_nic_probe: Minidump setup failed, rcode = 17.
nx_nic 0000:0 b: 00.0: irq 77 (295) for MSI / MSI-X
nx_nic 0000:0 b: 00.0: irq 78 (294) for MSI / MSI-X
nx_nic 0000:0 b: 00.0: irq 79 (293) for MSI / MSI-X
nx_nic 0000:0 b: 00.0: irq 80 (292) for MSI / MSI-X
nx_nic: using MSI-X interrupt
nx_nic: 10 GbE port initialized

As can be seen now in the driver loads the message:
nx_nic: Flash Version: Firmware [3.4.337], BIOS [1.0.2]
used to be:
nx_nic: Flash Version: Firmware [3.4.336], BIOS [1.0.2]

The card prekrastno works.
