We have a new Dell PowerEdge R320 upon which we installed SLES 10 SP4.
After installing, no network interfaces are available, save for the
loopback interface. There should be two NICs but neither are
configured. Is SLES 10 SP4 supported on this machine configuration?
Are compiled drivers available (Dell only lists them for SLES 11)?
Note that the DVD we used to install SLES 10 SP4 onto this hardware
includes patches released through August 2013. Are any of the SLES 10
SP4 kernel updates released since August 2013 necessary to support this
hardware? Can SLES 10 SP4 be installed on this hardware without need to
compile drivers for it?[/color]
Which processor does your server have? Whilst
at first to indicate that the R320 is supported with SLES10 SP4 a second
look suggests that’s only with the Xeon E5-2400 and not Xeon E5-2400v2
which is only supported with SLES11 SP3 (and higher).
Given that SLES10 SP4 is now no longer supported by SUSE (unless you
purchase Long Term Service Pack Support) and the R320 with either
processor is supported with SLES11 SP3 why are installing SLES10 SP4 and
not SLES11 SP3?
