Missing lan card error message

I took a spare lan card out of the server and
I keep getting this error message logged.
I have tried doing an insf -e, ioscan -fn.

gelan_verifyfw: Text segment not correct...
gelan2: Unable to verify firmware
gelan2: Init error at 1/0/0/1/0
wsio_claim init failed isc=0xc6d40400 name=gelan

Re: Missing lan card error message

Hi,
If you don't have any other gelan cards in the system - then go into SAM and remove the driver for this card and reboot. Move it to the out.
Just make sure you don't have any other cards using this driver otherwise they will not work any more.

Re: Missing lan card error message

It does not show up. When I check sam, I
see lan0(used) lan3 not used, lan4 not used.
There is no lan2.

In lanscan there is no lan2:

In ioscan -funClan. It does not show up
either. There is no lan2 1/0/0/1/0.

Nothing in /dev for lan2 either. If it was lan2 ever. ???

Re: Missing lan card error message

where does this message get logged? On the console? in sysylog.log? when you run certain commands? only at boot?

I guess there's a possibility that lan2 is still mentioned in one of the config files in /etc/rc.config.d

would be interesting to see if:

grep lan2 /etc/rc.config.d/*

turned up anything

Re: Missing lan card error message

There is nothing in /etc/rc.config.d/*.
Here is grep of gelan_verifyfw from
syslog.log:

Re: Missing lan card error message

As Duncan hinted, specifically check the /etc/rc.config.d/hpigelanconf file. If any of the parameters in this file have been initialized the /sbin/init.d/hpigelan is probably trying to initialize the nonexistent card. There should be nothing to the right of the equal sign in all the variables of the /etc/rc.config.d/hpigelanconf file.

And as I specifically stated.

"There is nothing in /etc/rc.config.d/*"

Hint: /etc/rc.config.d/hpigelanconf
