Pinned topic Fresh HS23 blade install, missing 25 drivers

‏2013-10-10T16:49:45Z |

Hello all,

Last week I installed a brand new HS23 blade into our blade center.  It is showing that it is missing 20 Base System Device drivers and 4 Ethernet Controller drivers.  I cannot get on the internet to automatically look for drivers and it will not allow me to connect to the domain due to it having no network connectivity.  It is running Server 2008 R2 x64, I used the install DVD that came with the new blade.  The only NIC adapter that is showing up in adapter settings is the IBM USB Remote NDIS Network Device, which from what I read, is only used to connect to the AMM, not the network.  I have tried every driver that is listed on the network drivers page of the HS23 model, but with no luck.  Do you guys have any suggestions for me to try?

 

Thank you,

     is it a 23 or a 23E?  Look at the AMM under Hardware VPD and get the FRU of the NIC card installed.  The download only that driver.  Mount your PC using the remote drive option and update it.  Otherwise, try update express or one of the other several deployment methods mentioned in the bladecenter installation guides.

    It is a HS23(7875) it has the BNT Layer 2/3 GB Copper Ethernet Switch Module listed in the I/O Module of the Hardware VPD as an ethernet controller.

    Dear Kevin,

    I faced the same issue and the solution is to install Windows using serverguide 9.40 or serverguide 9.41.

    I wasted two days on this issue and was able to install all the system base devices but the ethernet drivers shall not be installed.

    I even tried various drivers from the Emulex website but no luck.

    Hence use the server guide to install windows.

     

    good luck

    Hi, 
    You must to install the "Emulex NIC (be2net) Device Driver" from IBM Fix central.

    I hope that's helpful.

    Hi Anderson,

    Thanks for the reply. Even though the case is two years old.
