problems with netapp branded qle2672-n-nap-cu

Hi,

I have a NetApp branded qlogic FC adapter type qle2672-n-nap-cu under Centos.

/var/log/messages shows:

I have also tried to use different driver versions, but all failed with same error message.

Any idea?

Hi there!

 

Unfortunately NetApp does not support the use of these cards outside of our SAN/NAS controllers - however QLogic has drivers available for them from https://driverdownloads.qlogic.com/QLogicDriverDownloads_UI/SearchByProductOEM.aspx?oemid=372&oemcatid=111969&productid=1179&os=126

 

While they only support them on SLES, RHEL 5/6, Xen and Oracle Linux, hopefully you can get the drivers to run by using the same kernel as one of them - CentOS 5/6 should work, for example.

 

Hope this helps!
