Hello, when we update the Drivers to Intel Proset 24.3 for Intel X550 T2 or X722 NICs on Windows Server 2016 or 2019 it is not possible to reconfigure NIC Teaming. The result Ends with a boot crash and endless Boot Looping.

Jump to solution

We have Fujitsu Primergy RX2540M4 and have the Intel X550 T2 in combination with x722 10 GBit Nics installed. We installed NIC Teaming (from Windows side) with both Cards with LACP channel. Also installed Windows Server 2016 and some with 2019. Hyper V Role is also installed. Is there a chanche to update the Driver without Setting up the whole System? Downgrade to older Drivers Ends also with a boot crash. When we disable the Driver for the X550 T2 Card the System Comes up. But with enabled NIC Teaming the same result with boot crash appears. Firmware update for assosiated Driver Version was done. Phantom Drivers were removed from System before Setting up the new Drivers.

 

Kind regards,

Andreas

Hello Criselle, i got suddenly response from Fujitsu Support and got the solution. When updating the driver for X550 T2 and X722 Lom Cards to Intel Proset V.24.3 the SR-IOV Feature for NiCs has to be enabled in the BIOS of the system. (we had it on disabled state) Both x722 and x550 t2 cards have to be updated to new Firmware Version witch is contained in the Proset Package. Also there is a bug on the Firmware Package for X722 cards for Windows online Update FW Package. The Firmware Update (offline Update with Linux Boot) worked well and now after doing that all we got again stable funktion of our servers. Kind regards, Andreas

Hello Andreas

 

Thank you for the detailed response.

 

We hope you don't mind providing the additional information below as this would help us in further investigating the issue.

 

1.)In regard to your answer "Boot process stops before Windows Logo Appears and the System is resetting – Boot process loops"

Is there any error message shown every boot crash?

 

2.) Have you tried the latest generic driver from the link below? 

Intel® Ethernet Adapter Complete Driver Pack

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/22283/Intel-Ethernet-Adapter-Complete-Driver-Pack

 

3.) Is this your first time to configure teaming on your system? 

 

4.) Is the Teaming known to be working before without any issues? If yes, can you share if there are any software or hardware changes on your system?

 

5.) Is the Teaming working fine on older driver version as you have mentioned that when you update the Drivers to Intel Proset 24.3 for Intel X550 T2 or X722 NICs on Windows Server 2016 or 2019 it is not possible to reconfigure NIC Teaming? If yes, can you share the exact driver version? 

 

6.) Please provide the System Support Utility log of your system. This will allow us to check your Adapter details and configuration. Kindly refer to the steps below.

a- Go to https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows-?product=91...

b- Open SSU.exe
