Kernel NIC drivers



  • I trying to boot my Dell Poweredge R710 servers into the CloneDeploy menu. But it seems that the network cards doesnt initialize. From other posts it seems the drivers for this server hasnt been loaded in the boot kernel.

    Error
    IP: SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory

    Recenlty updated to v1.4.0
    I have tried booting with the following kernels
    4.20.10x64
    4.20.10
    4.18.5x64
    without success

    HW Specs
    Dell Poweredge R710
    Broadcom BCM5709C NetXtreme II GigE

    I wasnt able too boot into Client Mode and get bash NIC info. Will the info noted above suffice?

    And I have seen the sad the CD project is discontinued. We planning on using this for at future OS upgrade. And after the project I have requested my manager to donate to the project. Will someone else be able to help me with this minor thing I believe?

    Thank you



  • Edit: It does boot to CD menu. I mean boot to Clone Deploy tool
