FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 534FLR-SFP+ Adapter

Hi All,

I am having a network issue when I am installing kernel-5.4.35 in rhel7 OS running on top of the physical server DL360 Gen10.

The network interface is configured as bond0 in the server.

The interface is working with kernel-4.4 but showing offline when I am installing kernel-5.4 on top of rhel7.

I checked the kernel config file and all the config parameter enabled in the config file.

CONFIG_NET_VENDOR_BROADCOM=y
CONFIG_HAS_DMA=y
#CONFIG_BCM63XX is not set
CONFIG_SSB_POSSIBLE=y
CONFIG_HAS_IOMEM=y

Please help us to sole the issue on kernel-5.4

Re: FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 534FLR-SFP+ Adapter

Hi! what are you trying to do is fully custom.

AFAIK RHEL 7 isn't based on any 4.x or 5.x Linux Kernel, instead is based on the 3.10.0 Kernel branch (with backported fixes from upstream Vanilla) and RHEL 8 is based on 4.18.0 Kernel branch (with backported fixes from upstream Vanilla).

See here and here

Given that, the HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 534FLR-SFP+ Adapter uses official and supported (thus certified) device drivers for RHEL 7 and 8, respectively called, HPE QLogic NX2 10/20 GbE Multifunction Drivers for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 x86_64 and HPE QLogic NX2 10/20 GbE Multifunction Drivers for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 being supported, respectively, by RHEL 7.6 and 7.7 for the RHEL 7.x device driver, and RHEL 8.0 for the RHEL 8.x device driver. Plus you have to consider the relationship between Adapter, Firmware, Device Driver and OS. Actually the HPE QLogic NX2 Online Firmware Upgrade Utility for Linux x86_64 firmware - compatible (also) with the HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 534FLR-SFP+ Adapter - supports RHEL OS up to 7.7 (7 Update 7) and 8.0 (8 Update 0)...so, to stay on the safe side, you should use RHEL 7 (up to 7.7) or RHEL 8 (up to 8.0) with official HPE supported device driver and Firmware.

I think you missed the point that there is no warranty that the same device driver (or another Vanialla one) would work on newer Kernels (or Vanilla ones): it could work or not...and diagnosing why it doesn't work as expected (or why it is not stable)...could be a little bit out-of-scope here...because you're essentially running a Custom Kernel (well two custom kernels 4.4 and 5.4) on a commercial Linux distribution like RHEL 7 - so created an unsupported configuration/scenario - and thus results can be really unpredictables.

So, in other terms, your Server is OK, the Network Adapter is OK, supported Device Drivers are OK, Network Adapter Firmware and OS are OK...BUT the scenario you built is not entirely OK because you're not playing with propers software components arranged in the way they were/are supported.

Thank you for your reply.

Can anyone tell me if the version is compatible in rhel-7.5
