Hi

I have a new server which will be running EFW 2.2. It only has PCI-e slots so we purchased some additional StarTech PCI-e NICs to run with the embedded Broadcom NICs.

The NICs were not detected by the EFW installation so we have tried adding the Linux drivers for the NICs to the EFW server.

The OS can now see the NICs however they do not appear within the Endian GUI for allocating to a zone.

 

Here are some of our findings. Any suggestions on what else we can try?

 

Thanks

Gordon

Tried ethconfig --update still not showing.

 

Running ethconfig-debug produces…
