I've been using HP NC510C PCIe 10 gigabit nic(netxen) since early 2009 in a drbd setup between two DL380G5. We did experience hanging issues with the card but this was related to driver versions(HP psp support packs). We ended up opening a case with HP and are currently running on an "older" version of the nx_nic driver. If you want I will send you the specifics offline. BTW I just purchased some DL380G6 with NC522SFP(with BLc copper)and will be setting them up in the New Year. > Message: 4 > Date: Wed, 25 Nov 2009 11:45:23 -0700 > From: Mike Lovell <mike at dev-zero.net> > Subject: Re: [DRBD-user] 8.3.5 Stalling on sync > To: James Larcombe <jim at roadtech.co.uk> > Cc: drbd-user at lists.linbit.com > Message-ID: <4B0D7B43.3060302 at dev-zero.net> > Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"; Format="flowed" > hrm. i thought i had heard of someone using drbd over 10 gig with netxen > cards. i went looking for a few minutes and didn't find anything though. > my recommendation would be try newer drivers either through compiling > the drivers for you existing kernel or using a newer kernel. i don't > have details on how to do that for your cards cause i have never used > any 10 gig from hp or netxen. other than that, my only recommendation is > new nics. > good luck > mike > James Larcombe wrote: > > > > Hi Mike, > > > > > > > > The cards I'm using are HP NC522SFP Dual Port 10GbE Server Adapters > > with HP BLc 10Gb SR SFP+ Fiber Transceivers.
