FAQ
I have a broadcom bcm5722 and a dual intel pro/1000 pt nic in a dell
t110. The setup sees the cards and i put them into automatic mode.
After the install no cards are detected at all. Astaro 8.01 detects and
utilizes all of these cards just fine. I have also tried ubuntu server
10.04 lts and they work fine. I'm curious if this is a bug with Centos 6?

    did you add the broadcom card, or did it come installed? i'm
    wondering if there's some type of conflict between it and the
    onboard NICs.

    Well i have also tried the minimal version and the same thing. it
    seems there's something not going well with the t110(and maybe
    higher units) and centos?

    I have a new T310 with what I suspect has the same intel dual NIC
    - the machine is off at the moment and the order detail just says:

    On-Board Dual Gigabit Network Adapter [430-2008]

    that I installed centos 6.0 on last week. I only configured first
    port and it worked fine. The install set up a stub ifcfg-eth1
    which looked fine too, but I haven't configured it yet to confirm
    that it works as expected.

    The broadcom is embedded the intel dual port is the addon. Only centos
    6 has this issue i am currently running kvm under ubuntu 10.04 right
    now. I also did a test install of esxi and astaro and they worked
    perfectly there. It is something weird with centos.

    how did your testing go? I've reburned and md5ed multiple times.
    I just cannot get cent6 to work on this machine. ubuntu 10.05lts
    works flawlessly.
    I installed centos6.0 on a second new Dell T310 yesterday with no
    problems. I'm doing net installs from a local repository so do the
    network setup at that point, assigning a static (ipv4) ipnumber.
    I'm given the choice of NIC, and in both cases have selected the
    first one. I don't touch the networking stuff after that point in
    the install, and it all works fine. The
    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file is fully populated.
    The eth1 file has stub information.

    The card on the second machine is a Broadcom (haven't brought the
    first t310 back up yet to confirm its card) -- below are the
    details from dmesg from the last reboot.

    -----------------------

    A couple of years ago I had trouble with a RealTek card and found
    that the kernel didn't have (working) firmware support for it. In
    that case I was able to get the necessary driver and would load it
    after the machine came up. The next kernel update or two had the
    issue fixed.
    I was just looking at the message on the list "[CentOS] Problem
    getting eth0 up" and it got me wondering. Are you configuring the
    network at any point in the install process? With previous versions
    I seem to remember the network configuration step as being obvious.
    With 6 it isn't. Because I configure eth0 as part of the net install
    setup I skip the "Configure Network" box, but it's rather subtle and
    easily missed if you haven't already done the network setup.

    First time I didn't...the subsequent times I did. I tried setting them
    as dhcp to no avail. I then tried static. I'll try one more time if it
    doesn't work i'll have to stick with ubuntu...
