port 1 of bl460c Gen9 can not get IP
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “linux” source package in Trusty:
BL460Gen9 does not get IP addresses on both the NIC ports with Ubuntu 14.04/14.04.1
The NIC card in the blade is "Broadcom Corporation BCM57840 NetXtreme II 10/20-Gigabit Ethernet".
The NIC port 1 does not get an IP address both during install and after install.
I have attached the dmesg and lspci logs captured from the installer.
Steps to reproduce:
start installation process but kernel does not get IP address on port1 but port2 works fine.
Looks like Broadcom ethernet driver issue.
It seems upstream has this fix and below patch was suggested by Broadcom team which fixes this issue.
Below is the patch that Qlogic has provided, that fixes the issue.
apply upstream commit: dad91ee478c7f39e04a33272732147b8c274bb58
Boot the system and see if we get both nics working.
