we have a server with a Broadcom NetExtreme II card which supports iSCSI offloading. According to the dell documentation, we need to be running the bnx2i driver to use the iSCSI offloading engine.
We really want to enable offloading as this server is a SAN.
When we query the interface information with
ethtool -i eth0 we get:
driver: bnx2 version: 2.1.6 firmware-version: 6.2.12 bc 5.2.3 NCSI 2.0.11 bus-info: 0000:02:00.0
What is the best way to go about upgrading to bnx2i?
