I have a server running OpenSuse with a 10Gbe card (Intel 82599eb) and the driver is installed and it is working correctly.
I need to move the card to another slot. However, when I do so, the card no longer comes up. By that I mean, it does not show up when I run an
lspci. I've read that you might have to set a flag in the bios for data interrupts.
Found a thread on OpenSuse forums (http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/network-internet/484833-moving-nic-different-pci-slot-problem.html) that says:
There is a BIOS setting to reset the data for interrupts so it discovers the new location of the card. Should be something like "Reset Configuration Data" change this to yes and reboot
I went into the bios and cannot seem to find anything that sounds like that. Its a Tyan server if that helps. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
