[Dell PowerEdge R300] Installer looses eth0
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
During installation of Ubuntu 14.04 Server amd64, the installer
correctly configures eth0 (via static IP in my case) and retrieves the
host name and domain name from the DNS server. But it then loses
connection with eth0 sometime shortly afterwards. /var/log/syslog
shows the following:
May 27 21:26:24 kernel: [ 38.244015] tg3 0000:01:00.0: vpd r/w
failed. This is likely a firmware bug on this device. Contact the
card vendor for a firmware update.
The installation continues and completes, but hangs periodically
whenever the installation process attempts to access the network.
After rebooting the network devices work fine. (Although it does mean
that my pre-seeded post-install scripts fail to install my repository
and custom packages, as that requires network access.)
The hardware in question is a Dell R300 with dual Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5722 Gigabit Ethernet. Said hardware has been running Ubuntu 10.04, 11.04, and 12.04 flawlessly for years.
