Description

I have a Dell [[PowerEdge]] R310 server with two built in NICs, and a Intel Gigabit ET Quad Port
NICPCIe-4. After much, MUCH testing, it appears that my problem is related to the use of multiple NICs. If I set up a single NIC port, whether onboard, or the PCIe card everything works great 100% of the time.

However when trying to set up multiPle ports I'm always having problems. The OS will crash, and I can't administer it locally, or over the network. The problem seems to happen when 3 or more NIC ports are used, regardless of whether they're on the PCIe card, or builtin. It doesn't matter if I give them all separate IPs in the same subnet, all IPs in different sinners, or even try to set up an LACP link agg across 3 or more.

EVERY time, the OS crashes, and I have to reboot. This is even with no cables connecting it in to a switch. Just unplugged trying to configure the interfaces. Again with 1 NIC and IP everything works perfectly!

I apologize for the typos, and crazy wrong words. I'm on an iPhone that is autocorrecting.

#2 Updated by Josh Paetzel over 9 years ago

Is this an issue that is specific to [[FreeNAS]]? Has the system ever been run with a different OS?

#3 Updated by Jon Jewett over 9 years ago

It's specific to the Intel Driver for [[FreeBSD]] 8 apparently. I have already purchased a new card (4 port) that uses a different driver. Hopefully it will work fine. This ticket can be closed as I'm not using that particular card any more. -Thanks.
