SFT3

By mike.taylor7 ·
I am trying to set up a pair of NW 4.11 servers running SFT III. The Servers are Dell Poweredge 2400s with onboard Intel Pro 100+ NICs. Does anyone know where I can get the necessary drivers for the cards or if they are even supported?

Yes they are supported. In addition to the link answered above, boot to the Poweredge CD and make the driver disk from the make floppies button. That's not really the name, but it's been awhile. You'll see the option listed under the main menu.

The cards are supported by the Dells.
The cards are NOT supported by SFTIII.
Novell has a list of supported cards (very small list) and Intel has one card on the list (about $1000 each).
You can get the list on the SFTIII CD or at the Novell Site.
I had the exact same problem, after I quoted the final costs to my client. (The $2000 came out of my profits)

The SFTIII uses a MSL configuration (mirrored server link) between the server pair. pls review novell tid#2914244 (3feb97) it discusses some problems with MSL cards (DEC) and they switched to intel smart pro 100. you may wish to review novell doc "Issues with high-end servers and novell SFT" (1jul95). I had saw several issues on these of types last year, you must verify using certified equiment or you will have all types of problems.
