using intel i350t2 ethernet on nexentastor ce 3.1.1

Added by Hafiz Rafiyev over 2 years ago

hello,first of all i can't register on nexenta.org's forum.As nexenta project based on illumos I decided ask my question here.

any way using intel i350t2 ethernet on nexentastor ce 3.1.1?

root@cannexenta:/volumes# lspci

01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82575EB Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02)
01:00.1 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82575EB Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02)
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1521 (rev 01)
03:00.1 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1521 (rev 01)

last two lines for my new ethernet interface(intel i350t2 ethernet 2 gigabit ports ).

as you see new ethernet interface seen from lspci,but i can't see them from nexenta ce 3.1.1 web gui?

any special instractions to install new nic to nexentastor?

best regards

hafiz

I think you can get the system to try running it with the 'igb' driver with this command.
sudo update_drv -a -i '"pciex8086,1521"' igb

See if it shows up in
dladm show-phys
after that.
If not; you may need to wait on a driver update, it looks like the i350's are part of the igb driver.

I don't know who would be working on such updates, or how you would get them without compiling them yourself though.

It looks fairly minimal for an update though; it gets directed into the same code paths as the other i350 devices in the newer source from intel.
It might just require adding the device ID in a couple places in the igb source and recompiling; I got an 82576 ET2 to work that way.

Lucas thank you for your quick reply,

my nmc output

root@cannexenta:/volumes# sudo update_drv -a -i '"pciex8086,1521"' igb
bash: sudo: command not found
root@cannexenta:/volumes# update_drv -a -i '"pciex8086,1521"' igb
root@cannexenta:/volumes# dladm show-phys
LINK MEDIA STATE SPEED DUPLEX DEVICE
igb0 Ethernet up 100 full igb0
igb1 Ethernet up 1000 full igb1
root@cannexenta:/volumes#

please advice me ,which dual port gigabit ethernet working properly with nexenta 3.1.1?and is it possible recomplie driver for i350t2?

best regards

It looks like you still only have the original 2port 82575EB card being used. Do you have anything in dmesg about the other card?

I'm still not entirely sure on recompiling for use with nexenta.
I've only barely figured out recompiling a couple of drivers from illumos-gate using GCC (for use with OpenIndiana systems), and I don't know how that compares to compiling for nexenta.

I don't know what there is for an HCL anymore either, so I can't help much there.
