    Trouble adding Intel i350-T4 PCI-e card to server with onboard i350-T4 LOM

      Hi !

      We are having trouble adding a i350-T4 card to the Cisco UCS c250 M3 with onboard i350 LOM

       

      It is caught in an infinite loop unless we disable onboard LOM - other posts on the Internet raises a flag when it comes to combining onboard LOM with PCI-e cards.

      All firmware is updated and all option ROMs are disabled for all Cards, PXE disabled with bootutil 19.0

       

      We did test the following

      Moved Intel NIC from PCI-e slot 5 to PCI-e slot2

      Disabled all option ROM in BIOS (booting ESX from SD CARD)

       

      Onboard LOM disabled in BIOS = boot / external NICs detected

      Onboard LOM enabled in BIOS + PCI-e i350-T4 = no boot - system hangs

      Onboard LOM enabled in BIOS = boot / internal NICs detected

       

      Card is on Cisco whitelist page 225 http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/unified_computing/ucs/interoperability/matrix/r_hcl_C_rel1-53d.pdf

       

      But since its not Cisco branded our local Cisco REP wont raise a TAC :-(
