Hello,
I installed SLES 10 SP2 a couple days ago and I still haven't been able to get the network to work.
Can anybody help get this to work?

Thanks

What kind of error are you seeing?

What does..
#> /sbin/ifconfig -a
show?

Also, what does
#> /bin/netstat -nr
show?

Are you using DHCP or static IP addresses?

Hi,
I am using a static IP address. It seems like it's either not detecting the network card or something like that.
Since I am using IPMI at the moment, I have to snip and paste the output. (see below)

Hi
What hardware? SLES 10 SP2 is old, I would say the kernel doesn't know
about the hardware;



hwinfo --netcard
/sbin/lspci -nn |grep Net

Hi
So that uses the igb kernel module, can you post the output from;


uname -a
modinfo igb

If you get output from the second command, check for a line;


alias: pci:v00008086d0000150Esv*sd*bc*sc*i*

Does it exist?

Hi,
Sorry for the late reply.
I tried a couple of things since I noticed this is a common problem. I installed 11 sp2 and got the same thing; then removed it and installed SLES 10 SP4 and it worked automatically for whatever reason.
Ironically, really don't understand why this worked. I did nothing different.

Thanks for following up though.
