    How to reconfigure Cards installed in PCI slots

    User12629847-Oracle
      Hi All

      My customer has OEL linux. installed on his HP DL380 G7 server. It has 4 Emulex LPe11002 dual port cards installed. The cards in PCI slot 3 and 5 are needed for network connection.

      So he needs to configure the cards in PCI slot 3 and 5 to be used for the network using port 0 on the cards.

      Any guidance help would be appreciated.

      Thanks

          those are HBA FC cards

          What protocol your costumer want to have on those cards?

          IPoFC ?if yes, I haven't done my self, how ever, I did read about time ago, and looks like due the costs of the hardware/switch, all the progress went to 10GE/24GE and infini band.

          not sure if IPoFC is something in the normal skill set of a linux sysadmin.

          What's the speed of those FC cards and switches?
