Setup: C7000, HP BL465c blades
I did an upgrade recently to the latest Centos 6.5. The upgrade appeared to go well however the network drivers failed to load after an upgrade. I tried downgrading but again network drivers were missing.
The core of my problem is that the only broadcom network drivers in the /lib/firmware/bnx2x directory are
The oldest kernel on the server is version 2.6.32-358.23.el6.x86_64 which references bnx2x-e2-220.127.116.11.fw !
I have no idea how this situation happened however it feels like catch 22. I can't get the required drivers on because I have no networking..... I tried to reproduce this on another server but it upgraded fine and all the expected drivers were present.
What options do I have to get the firmware drivers onto the server?
Is there a way to copy the drivers onto the server via a USB key inserted into the OA?
Can I connect the cable with USB and VGA feeds to the server and connect in a USB stick?
Is it possible to do this remotely?
Thanks in advance
