I have a Server with 5 NIC's.
And I have just installed Ubuntu Server 11.10 64 bit fully dist-upgraded by now (31 Jan)
3 NIC's are identical PCI-Express x4 adapters. 1 is integrated TG3 and the last one is PCI but with the same RealTek chipset as those 3 NIC's (r8169)
My system is only seeing three NICs and assigning their
eth* other two adapters are just not visible. It can't see TWO of those THREE identical adapters.
I also couldn't find them on DMESG.
Adapters by themselves work fine I also tried to plug the cable and their LED's blinking (I also checked them on another machine and they work fine).
Please help me!
What can I do? How can I debug? I need at least one of them to function properly.
