I am building a server to be used as Cisco TelePresence Management Server. An app that runs on Win 2008 R2
The server has 2 500gb hd and mezzanine controller
I can see that the CIMC works as I assigned an IP and I was to KVM to it. After Windows installed, windows cannot see any NIC and I cannot add any NIC. Going to Device Manager it shows a ? on the Ethernet Controller
Have you tried loading the corresponding Windows drivers from the C-Series Drivers CD?
How do I know which NIC my C200 M2 has? II tried using the SCU and followed instruction. Before it asked me to put in the OS Cd, it asked me which LAN driver to install AND there was I not knowing which one to select as there are a few Broadcom driver. I selected one and after everything, the server still does not see the NIC
I used the SCU disk to configure this but for some reason after the 2008 R2 is installed, it cannot see the NIC. I was able to complete the Array and Raid 1 but no matter what I do , it is not seeing any nIC
In the Device Manager, the 2 Ethernet Controller has ? on it and whether I delete or uninstall it...not working
If these are the 1G onboard NICs, then you likely have either a broadcom or Intel based card.
There are install applications within each folder of the Driver CD. Install them one at a time until your cards are detected.
Alternately you may be able to use the Host Update Utility to detect your current hardware.
Why is Cisco UCS this difficult to set up for such a simple purpose?
I saw the setup.exe in the Broadcom folder and I tried all of them. Each time I ran it, it gives me the option of Modify, Repair and Remove. I choose Modify and reboot each time, nothing.
I will try the Intel ones today.
I will download the HUU
Thankr Robert. Will keep yoi posted
Eduardo - Is it a Cisco provided/supported NIC or another 3rd Party NIC?
Need details if we're going to help you, NIC type, OS, BIOS Version, Platform etc etc
The NIC are Cisco provided (integrated ones). I tried to install Broadcom and Intel drivers without success (same as Viper).
Unfortunately I dont know which type of NIC I have. I dont see neither in the BIOS nor in CIMC.
I upgraded CIMC from 1.4(3p) to 1.4(3x) from C-Series Host Upgrade Utility (and the BIOS too), but this utility doesnt see any NIC.
I attached information about the server from CIMC.
We have a W2008R2 enterprise as OS.
Go into the BIOS (F2 during boot from KVM) and see if the onboard NICs might have been disabled.
BIOS Setup Utility Advanced → PCI Configuration
Alternately you can reset the BIOS to defaults which should re-enable them also if you can't find the configuration elsewhere.
They are enabled, just in case I load the default configuration, and now I see the NICs.
I could install Intel drivers now.
Thank you ver much.
Happy to help. I suggest now that the NICs are visible you re-run the latest HUU to ensure the LOM FW is up to date.
