On the boot, during power-on self test POST , you should be able to see the firmware version of the Emulex. Introduction Did you know? Operating environment This adapter complies with temperature rating requirements for BladeCenter H and BladeCenter HT chassis and is supported in the following environment: Needed to refresh for later reply’s, thanks for the suggestions I am trying now.

In worst case scenario, you can select “fallback” xevice. Sadly no going to come back to this in the morning when rested. Hmm is there one you would recommend I try first?

Turn off and restart the blade server; then, rerun the test. As an example, XenServer 6. I tried a custom install already using this method Apologies for the inconvenience.

Desperately in need of help 🙁 10GB Emulex NIC’s are unknown devices – Networking – Discussions

Posted November 12, We have logged a call with IBM, will close this post accordingly with an update if its confirmed. Posted November 8, Each virtual port can be configured to operate at Mbps to 10 Gbps, up to a total maximum of 10 Gb per physical port.


Or should I again rebuild from scratch using the F9 option and ensuring I use the driver source from the bottom link “Originally released as CTX”. Actually just noticed their are firmware requirements for the drivers I am installing If the failure remains, restart the OneCommand Manager daemon. This is main reason that drivers are not included with the hotfix, as they may require a firmware update.

I assume they are on the HCL, or? You would want to follow steps in the following document: Alan makes the good point that even if the device is in the modprobe. In vNIC mode, each physical port is divided into four virtual ports providing a total of eight virtual NICs per adapter.

BladeCenter chassis support is based on the blade server type in which the expansion card is installed. Often, most issues are not XenServer, but other factor. In UFP mode, you can change the bandwidth allocations through the Virtual Fabric 10Gb Switch Module user interfaces without requiring a reboot of the server.

Make sure that no critical operation for example, firmware download is already running. The virtual NICs are configured to meet the client’s mix of network connectivity and throughput demands for today’s complex server application environments. The default bandwidth for each vNIC is 2. Here is example for NIC So there are effectively two differing versions of the same driver is that what your saying?


Thank you for your feedback. Mark this reply as best answer, if it answered your question. The VLAN tags are added to the packet by the applications or drivers at each end station rather than by the switch.

Devide I will continue with those steps outlined and at step 5 I will apply the relevant drivers after the update and prior to a reboot. GCS Full Fabric mode.

Its would appear I rebuilt this for no good reason really, but the experience of rebuilding Xen dozens of times was good I suppose.

Thank you mate that looks very detailed, I am far more optimistic about my next attempt now. Asked by lukeglazebrook gmail.
