Unable to assign interfaces

  • Greetings,

    I am unable to assign interfaces during installation on any of my NICs
    ra0  Realtek 8111E
    em0 Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network
    em1 Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network

    installation output is similar for all network interfaces.

    em0: <intel(r) 1000="" pro="" network="" connection="" 6.9.6="">port 0xd040-8xd07f mem 0xfe4a0 000-8xfebffff, 0xfe400000-0xfe49ffff irq 18 at device 0.0 on pci14
    em0: Setup of Shared code failed
    device_attach: em0 attach returned 6</intel(r)>

    Setting up the interfaces manually returns the following.

    Warning: array_key_exists(): The second argument should be either an array or an object in /etc/inc/config.inc on line 1357
    Invalid Interfce name 'em0'

    Using auto detection returns the following

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /etc/inc/config.inc on line 1527
    no link-up detected.

    system info
    Intel Core i3-2100 Sandy Bridge
    BIOSTAR H67MU3 with on board Realtek 8111E
    2 x Intel Pro 1000 PCI

    Please help.

  • Update:  The same issue comes up with pfSense 2.0 RC1 for the em0 and em1 interfaces. ra0 can be assigned to the WAN now. I still cant assign IP's to the other 2 NICs

  • Try using one of the newer snapshot images. I just experienced similar weirdness with the February 2.0 RC-1 build. I switched to the April 29th build and everything worked like a charm.
