Dell PowerEdge R815 - Network connection problems


#1

Fresh install of Hive to R815. 4 total onboard NICs, 2 disabled. Activity lights work. lspci shows the two broadcom II nics but I can’t connect to anything. ifconfig shows only lo. Any ideas? How can I get the nics working?


#2

lscpi from console may help to recognize devices
try from console

lspci

#3

Yes I know that. lspci DOES list the devices, Broadcom II Gigabit NICs. However Hive won’t load them. As a stop gap I installed a pcie network card that got picked up but I’ve lost a slot for a GPU with this solution. Any other ideas?
