issue with the nic driver while using the Bootable CD iso

  1. last year

    I got an issue with the nic driver while using the Bootable CD iso in my hp proliant server
    error message:
    cold not contact CloneDeploy server ...
    A driver could not be found for this nic...

    when you press enter on This message it take you to a windows that you configure static ip.
    I tried to config this on both of my NICs and I always get the error:
    ifdown: interface eth0 not configured
    ip: RTNETLINK answers: File exists
    IP: SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
    IP: RTNETLINK answers: Network is unreachable

    any idea how can I add the relevant drivers to the Bootable CD iso? there is a procedure for that?

    hardware: ProLiant DL380p Gen8
    nic: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM57810 10 Gigabit Ethernet (Kernel driver in use: bnx2x)

    any idea?

    Give the 4.10.1 kernel a try with added bnx2x firmware.

    Can you try the 4.7 kernel.
    http://docs.clonedeploy.org/kernels/4.7x64

  3. Thank you for your fast reply

    • I have downloaded the file kernels 4.7x64
    • I have changed in the files grub.cfg and isolinux.cfg from 4.5x64 and 4.7x64

    I got the same error like above
    Now I succeeded also to capture the error while trying to set the nic (attached)

    remark: I saw that it using the new kernel version 4.7x64 while loading

    Can we verify the nic isn't being listed under a different name?

    Boot to client console and run ifconfig -a

    If nothing comes up, can you run lspci -nn

    I have ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS installed on that client with active eth0 nic
    I can see in the list eth0 and eth1
    the details about the nics: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM57810 10 Gigabit Ethernet (Kernel driver in use: bnx2x)
    are from the command lspci -nn
    I don't know if I need to mention this but this server also has SD card (/dev/sdm) so from some reason it is trying to boot first from the SD (even the boot sequance is configured to HDD first). there is no OS install on the SD (/dev/sdm) but in the bootable cd iso on the grub page when I click on boot from local disk I get error booting from /dev/sdm

    I would need the output from the CloneDeploy client console, not an installation of Ubuntu.
    Also, I need the full output of lspci -nn to see if the id's are in the kernel.

  7. How can I open the CloneDeploy client console?
    from the Bootable CD iso I can click on "disaplay aviliable NICs"
    and i get the output attached
    output of the lspci -nn from booting the system up will be ok?

    It appears that it has a driver but may not be 100% supported. I'll try building the latest kernel and post it here when it's done.

  9. Thank you for your response. I will wait for your update

    I've built kernel 4.9.8. Give it a shot.

    same issue :/

    There is an option to add the relevant flags somehow to the iso?

    or maybe i'm doing something wrong?

  12. In all of my servers the system is working perfect! except 1 model...

    I have tried to update the system into the new patch: http://clonedeploy.org/v1-2-0-patches/
    I downloaded new iso image and I generated new image using the new kernel 4.9.8x64
    and I get the same error :/
    there is any option to understand what is missing in the SIOCSIFFLAGS ?

    Thanks a lot!

    I think I found the issue. My kernels only have firmware for the bnx2 which is a 1gb card. The 10gb card is bnx2x. I'll try adding the firmware for bnx2x and get back to you

    Give the 4.10.1 kernel a try with added bnx2x firmware.
