bnx2: Can't load firmware file "bnx2/bnx2-mips-09-6.2.1b.fw"
This is because you have the kmod-bnx2 package which contains a newer
driver (2.2.1) but not a complete set of firmwares (two out of five
files missing).>>
This machine is using the normal bnx2 driver (2.1.11) for which there is
complete set of firmwares (provided by the kernel-firmware package).
Spot on - the working machine did not have kmod-bnx2 installed.
If you don't need the 2.2.1 driver I suggest you remove the kmod-bnx2
package from the first machine and fall back to the driver in the normal
kernel package.
Installing without kmod-bnx2 worked, and I also had to get rid of
kmod-cnic, which /tmp/yum.log listed as requiring kmod-bnx2.
This is fixed in RHEL6.3 (beta) where the kernel-firmware package
contains the latest firmware that you are missing above:
To be clear, there is no bug/problem in the kernel-firmware package in 6.2.
This thread is about the behaviour of a driver update (kmod-bnx2) with its own
(incomplete) set of firmware. As you point out, 6.3 will have the new driver
and its firmware.

In the meantime (as a workaround), just grab the missing firmware and
place it in the appropriate directory.
No, in the meantime don't install kmod-bnx2 unless you need it, it's not meant
as a general update for the kernel provided bnx2.
