Hi,

we added additional networkcards into the servers, but when doing a ifconfig -a | less the additional cards/ports are not being displayed.

Also the CVM starts and goes into a continous boot loop. the following is being displayed UNLOAD: attempting modprobe remove virtio-pci

Now our question is why are the additional ports not being displayed? Are drivers needed in order for the CVM to boot correctly with the new card installed?

 

Thanks

Do you see the cards when running lspci on the hypervisor? 

We havent tried that yet. Will run the command as soon as i have access to the system again.

Hello Stephen,

Could you please specified the Node model and generation, Hypervisor and version ?
