Hi list,

I have installed CentOS on an hp proliant blade server, bl 460c g7, after installing I’ve seen that network is not working properly. It recognises around 8 interfaces (?), mii-tool says that there is not any link present on those, and there’s only 2 NIC’ per bay.

I’ve searched on Hp support page but there’s only one driver for storage. Does anybody has had the same trouble with this model? They are new servers, firmware (of blade) is updated.

An HP guy said that there wasn’t problems by installing Redhat, in contrast with CentOS HP brings every single driver (maybe I could use it).

The output of lspci

lspci | grep Eth
…. Ethernet Controller: Emulex corporation One connect 10GB NIC (be3) (rev01)

I have installed the kit that Emulex brings for CentOS from its webpage, but, again, I don’t know why it shows 8 interfaces when there are only 2
NICs and 2 iscsi for HBA.
