FreeBSD and SR1630HGP with 82578DM

Hello.

I have SR1630HGP server with 2 network adapter.

FreeBSD 7 see only 1 network card (82574L), but 82578DM is not.

I download and install http://downloadcenter.intel.com/download.aspx?url=/17509/eng/em-6.9.21.tar.gz&DwnldId=17509&lang=rus Network Adapter Gigabit Base Driver for FreeBSD* 7.x and OS see 82578DM.

But after that when i shutdown my server (shutdown -p now) - it reboot, not shutdown.

I install driver like write in README:

cd em-x.x.x

make

make install

Edit /boot/loader.conf, and add the following line:

if_em_load="YES"

Also i disable em in kernel.

I try to update to FreeeBSD 8.0 - but is steel reboot, not shutdown

PS if i disable if_em_load="YES" in loader.conf - FreeBSD shutdown OK.

Generally, if an OS hasn't been tested by Intel (see http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s3420gp/sb/CS-030739.htm ), you may get unpredictable results

I can confirm that FreeBSD 8 (8.1-RELEASE) works fine on SR1630HGP.

Just make sure you include the acpi driver *in* the kernel with your amd64, or the kernel will reboot at boot.

You find an optimized kernel configuration here:
