10G NIC modules bnx2x does not work on XEN mode
Last modified: 2008-11-10 16:58:16 EST
Description of problem:
The 10G NIC chipset is Boardcom 57710
Rhel 5.2 include the bnx2x module as the chipset 57710 driver module
It works well on the kernel 2.6.18-92-el5,the two netwrok ports works at the
bits/s, the data stream transmission is normally.
but when the kernel is 2.6.18-92-el5xen (OS run on XEN mode ),the 10G network
ports link status is always keep the state of "no-linked"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
OS Rhel5.2 64bits
bnx2x ver :1.40.22
CPU : Intel Xeon 5405
chipset: Intel 5000P
NIC Chipset : Boardcom 57710(on board)
when the OS is working at XEN mode, the driver module bnx2x does not work !
Steps to Reproduce:
Are you sure netpbm is a correct component to file this bug against? It looks more like a kernel/userspace problem to me.
OK ,add this problem to kernel bug is more appropriate,thank you
This was a kernel bug, but should be fixed with the latest 5.3 kernel. Closing out.
