Problem with HP 530 FLB network cards and Windows 2012 on Blade G8

A question from Lawrence regarding the drivers for the HP 530FLB Flexible Network adapter:

 

************

 

On the latest SPP 2013.09.0, there is an updated Broadcom NIC driver for Windows 2012.

 

Perhaps try this new driver (Broadcom NIC driver for Windows 2012, version 7.8.25.0) to see if the errors go away when doing the 2012 cluster validation.

 

Apparently the earlier driver (ver 7.4.x.x) has an issue with the default Windows MTU size.

Thanks for your feedback.

In fact, I had the opportunity to test the 7.8.25.0 version before the release date of SPP 2013.09.0  , and it solved the problem (cluster validation works now with “Large Send Offload” Enabled..).
