OpenFiler NIC doesn't show up, OpenFiler VLANs

Hi there,

I'm installing OpenFiler on one of our servers and one of the NICs doesn't show up. Both are connected, both were working fine with Windows Server installed, but OpenFiler just doesn't see one! It only shows ETH0. Any ideas?

Also, can you configure VLANs on OpenFiler so you can use one NIC for multiple VLANs?

Thanks!

I understand vlan use is possible - have not actually tried that. See https://forums.openfiler.com/viewtopic.php?id=4303 for some insite on vlan use.

Take a look at https://forums.openfiler.com/viewtopic.php?id=5386 about missing nic, if not on most current version (as of 7/16/2010) there seems to be fix for that issue.

Good Luck

Actually, when I installed OpenFiler only eth0 showed up, no other interfaces were present.

If you type "ifconfig -a" at the console of the openFiler, do you see both eth0 and eth1?

no, only eth0. I can't think of any reason the second NIC isn't showing up.
