unable to PXE install on eth1 broadcomm 5721
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:24 EST
Description of problem:
PXE install doesn't work on eth1 (OK on eth0)
DHCP reply is not accepted, manually setting ip address does not work
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start PXE install with ksdevice=eth1
2.Server blade IBM HS20 driver tg3 bi-ethernet Gb
After a while anaconda prompts for IP
On DHCP server i see DHCPDISCOVER and DHCPOFFER (5 times) but never
When i set a static IP, i cannot ping it, and install fail because my FTP
install server cannot be reached
On F3 Console it can see :
getting kickstart file
sending dhcp request through device eth1
waiting for link...
running dhcp for eth1
pump told us: No DHCP reply received
eth1 isn't a wireless adaptor
IP activation on eth1
how can i set up eth1 to process PXE install ?
DHCP works fine on first PXE request that brings up the pxe menu
Same problem with stable fc5-i386 and RHEL30 update 6
I tried linksleep=40 on RHEL40U3 but no way to bring eth1 up ...
Corrected by new IBM BIOS Broadcomm update
(Critical update) Broadcom Firmware Update Utility here :
