Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 142917
Intel Quad Network Adapter port activation freezes system
Last modified: 2014-06-29 18:57:42 EDT
Description of problem:
I have the following hardware in the server:
1U rack chassis
Supermicro P4SCT+II (with two 1GB NIC onboard)
Pentium 4 3.0Ghz processor
Intel Pro/1000 MT Quad Port Server Adapter
Maxtor IDE harddrive
OS: Red Hat Enterprise 3.0 Workstation, update 3
The system locks up when I try to activate 2 of the ports on the Quad
NIC card in Linux.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: everytime port activation is applied
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 3.0
2. Start Network Device Control
3. Set Static IP address and activate port
Actual results: On certain ports on the Intel Quad Port network
Adapter, the activation results in locked system. The whole system
freezes, you cannot go to another terminal screen
Expected results: Successful activation of port and be able to ping
out over the network to other network devices
Additional info: I've installed another type of OS (non-Linux) with
the same hardware and all the Network ports on the motherboard and
the Quad card works.
Peter, is this still an issue?
We are not going to resolve this in R3, closing out as wontfix.
