Description Larry Troan 2003-02-04 03:25:58 UTC
Problem Statement:  DRVNET.IMG diskette does not list bcm5700 or tg3 driver
during over-the-wire install

Server: ML350 G3 and ML370 G3
OS: Red Hat 81 Beta 4
Adapter: Embedded NC7760
Make sure system only has one BCM adapter (BCM5700 adapter)

How to view:
Make BOOTNET diskette from Red Hat 8.1 beta 4 CD
Make DRVNET diskette from Red Hat 8.1 beta 4 CD

Insert BOOTNET diskette into server.  Follow the instructions for the install. 
You should notice that the diskette will report that no driver was found for the
broadcom adapter (NC7760).  So choose to use the driver diskette.

Insert the DRVNET diskette and hit enter.  You should notice a list of driver to
show up.  Scroll down to view the drivers and search for either �bcm5700� or
�tg3� driver.  You should notice that neither driver exists. 

The good news is� is that the system can still install because a driver was
found even thou it looks as if it didn�t have a driver for the adapter.

Beta 3 diskettes did list both the �bcm5700� and �tg3� driver.

There is no BOOTNET image in beta 4. Which image are you referring to?

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2003-02-12 17:23:54 UTC
Following up as there has been no response for one week.

What boot image are you using - there is no bootnet.img for Phoebe.

Comment 3 Larry Troan 2003-02-13 23:11:47 UTC
I'm sorry.  It's "bootdisk.img" not "bootnet.img".  I'm also using the
"drvnet.img" since the bcm5700 and e1000 drivers are usually located on this

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-02-17 15:54:30 UTC
Thanks for the feedback, assigning to an engineer.
