I have a new installation of a SR1630 HGP (SR3420GP Board), being set up with RHEL 5. This is my first Intel Server. To make matters worse, I am pretty much a novice with Linux. MY ISSUE: I realized that I was having some major network connectivity issues. For example, I can ping the Intel RHEL server from my XP desktop, but I can't ping anything in the network from the server. After verifying all the settings I could find, I thought that perhaps the NICs/controller did not have the current drivers. I found current drivers and instructions for installing ixgbe drivers and followed them to the letter (my ignorance made this a challenge), but everything looked like they were successfully installed. I never did find a way to positively indicate if the new drivers were in use. However, the network communication is no different. Perhaps I was unsuccessful in the driver install OR perhaps I am barking up the wrong tree. I would be grateful for any help I can get!
