After installing the 4FE NIC in the 515e and powering up the firewall, the only ethernet interfaces that show up are 0-2. The 515e originally had a 1FE NIC installed, which I removed and installed the 4FE in its place. Upon running 'sh ver' the MAC address for ethernet2 is different than the 1FE's MAC address. Also, E1 and E2 are using the same irq. I assume the 4FE NIC is being recognized. What needs to be done in order for the other 3 ports to be recognized for use.
Running int ethernet3 100full shutdown appears to work, as no error is given. Running a sh int does not display interfaces 3-5.
PIX 515E do support maximum 6 FE interfaces but using unrestricted or failover software license. I suggest that you check your PIX is using unrestricted software license. If your PIX is using restricted software license, it supports maximum 3 interfaces. If it is, you need to upgrade your PIX to unrestricted software license.
