HP NC373F Fiber card status No Carrier
Hello, all! I have an HP server that I'm trying to get a fiber connection up and running on, and ifconfig reports no carrier. This connection works just fine on a Juniper router with a JXU-1SFP-S card, but will not bring the card up on the HP under pfSense.
The card is listed under supported hardware, so I don't think it's a compatibility problem.
Here's the ifconfig -m bce0 output:
bce0: flags=8843 <up,broadcast,running,simplex,multicast>metric 0 mtu 1500 options=c00bb <rxcsum,txcsum,vlan_mtu,vlan_hwtagging,jumbo_mtu,vlan_hwcsum,vlan_hwtso,linkstate>capabilities=c01bb <rxcsum,txcsum,vlan_mtu,vlan_hwtagging,jumbo_mtu,vlan_hwcsum,tso4,vlan_hwtso,linkstate>ether 28:92:4a:2c:26:20 inet6 fe80::2a92:4aff:fe2c:2620%bce0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x11 inet x.x.x.x netmask 0xfffffffc broadcast x.x.x.x nd6 options=1 <performnud>media: Ethernet autoselect (none) status: no carrier supported media: media autoselect media 1000baseSX mediaopt full-duplex</performnud></rxcsum,txcsum,vlan_mtu,vlan_hwtagging,jumbo_mtu,vlan_hwcsum,tso4,vlan_hwtso,linkstate></rxcsum,txcsum,vlan_mtu,vlan_hwtagging,jumbo_mtu,vlan_hwcsum,vlan_hwtso,linkstate></up,broadcast,running,simplex,multicast>
I've tried forcing the media type with no effect. Also downed and upped the interface, still no change. Do I need to adjust options or flags? Anyone have any hints as to why this card will not bring up the link? I get a green light on the NIC, sometimes it will flash as if there's traffic for a but before it goes solid. I've never see any other status besides "no carrier". My googling has come up dry. Any thoughts are welcome, I'll gladly provide anything useful.
Well, HP is convinced it's a driver issue, though the card is specifically listed on the compatibility page. Is there a way to verify that this model of card has worked under pfSense? Is there a way for me to get updated drivers?
