HP NC340T on HP DL380 G4



  • Hi all,
    I have a NC340T mounted on HP DL380 G4.
    I installed pfsense 2.0.3.
    Installation finished without trouble but NC340T did'nt recognized at all.
    I upgraded to 2.1 but NC340T doesn't work.
    Anyone can help me to resolve this issue?
    Thanks



  • Is it seen by the HP bios?



  • Excuse me for late response. I am aout of office.
    BOIS see four Ethernet Controller into PCI Device



  • I installed Windows 2003 on this server and HP NC340T is found and work in this SO
    It seems that em driver won't work on this card?

    What chipset does NC340T use? Are you sure its intel, I'm not familiar with it. Should be able to tell from the windows install, google didn't have a 5 second answer.

    I know NC360T and 364T well as they are a cheap and common way to get pci-express intel 82571 NICs.



  • This is a PCI-X Quad Port 10/100/1000 Ethernet Card with two Intel 82546GB with Pericom PCI-X bridge
    You can find specification here:
    http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/networking/nc340t/

    My pciconf -lv is reported down.
    In this output I can't find any refrence to NC340T device.
    I am right? If yes, why pciscan doesn't detect this device?

    I see a dual port broadcom card (BCM5704?) but no other chip corresponds to an intel ethernet controller. Are you 100% sure you have a NC340T?

    It could be a weird compatibility issue where freebsd won't see past the pci bridge, other than that I have no idea.



  • bge0 and bge1 are on board broadcom gigabit ethernet and yes, I have a NC34T card :-)
