Replacing the card bracket
The PEB-10G Series Ethernet card is bundled with a full-length bracket, a low-profile bracket,
and an ASUS proprietary bracket. By default, the card is pre-installed with a full-length
bracket.
The proprietray bracket supports ASUS Z10PH-D16 series, ES4000 G3 series, and
RS720Q-E8 series models, etc. The supported list of models are subject to change without
prior notice.
To replace the card bracket:
1. Get the PEB-10G Series Ethernet card and place it on a stable and flat surface.
Ensure that the printed circuit board (PCB) is facing down.
2. Remove the two screws that secures the PEB-10G Series Ethernet card to the card
bracket then remove the card bracket.

3. Get the replacement card bracket.
4. Align and insert the PEB-10G Series Ethernet card into the mounting hole of the card
bracket. Ensure that the screw holes on the PEB-10G Series Ethernet card matches
the screw holes of the card bracket.
5. Replace the screws that you removed earlier in step 2.

General Parameters
TCP/IP Parameters via DHCP [Enabled]
This option applies to IPv4.
[Enabled] The iSCSI boot host software acquires the IP address from the DHCP
server.
[Disabled] The iSCSI boot host software acquires the static IP address.
iSCSI Parameters via DHCP [Enabled]
[Enabled] The iSCSI boot host software acquires its iSCSI target parameters from
the DHCP server.
[Disabled] The iSCSI boot host software acquires its iSCSI target parameters via the
static IP address, which is entered through the iSCSI Initiator Parameters
Configuration screen.
CHAP Authentication [Disabled]
[Enabled] Allows the iSCSI boot host software to use CHAP authentication when
connecting to the iSCSI target. Enter the CHAP ID and CHAP Secret in the
Initiator Parameters configuration screen.
[Disabled] Does not allow the iSCSI boot host software to use CHAP authentication
when connecting to the iSCSI target.
Boot to iSCSI Target [Enabled]
[Enabled] The iSCSI boot host software immediately attempts to boot from the iSCSI
target after successfully connecting to it.
[Disabled] The iSCSI boot host software does not attempt to boot from the iSCSI
target after successfully connecting to it. The control will then return to the
system BIOS so that the next boot device may be used.
ASUS PEB-10G Series
2-7
[One Time D
isabled] On the first system boot, the iSCSI boot host software does not
attempt to boot from the iSCSI target. On subsequent system reboots, the
iSCSI boot host software will attempt to boot from the iSCSI target. This
option is useful when doing a remote install of the OS to an iSCSI target.
•
When using iSCSI boot, set Boot to iSCSI Target to [Disabled] or [One Time Disabled].
•
When using iSCSI boot to install Windows Server 2008 OS, refer to
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974072/EN-US to complete the process.
DHCP Vendor ID [BRCM ISAN]
Controls how the iSCSI boot host software interprets the Vendor Class ID field used in
the DHCP server. If DHCP is disabled, this value does not need to be specified. Enter
a new value in 0 to 32 characters.
Link Up Delay Time [0]
Decides how many seconds the iSCSI boot host software waits after an Ethernet link is
established before sending any data over the network. The valid values are 0 to 255.
Use TCP Timestamp [Disabled]
Enables or disables the TCP Timestamp option.
Configuration options: [Disabled] [Enabled]
Target as First HDD [Disabled]
When enabled, the iSCSI target drive appears as the first hard drive in the system.
Configuration options: [Disabled] [Enabled]
LUN Busy Retry Count [0]
Specifies the number of connection retries the iSCSI Boot initiator will attempt if the
iSCSI target LUN is busy. Configuration options: [0] – [60]

•
If Windows® automatically detects the LAN controllers and displays a New Hardware
Found window, click Cancel to close this window.
•
If Autorun is NOT enabled in your computer, browse the contents of the Support CD to
locate the file Setup.exe. Double-click Setup.exe to run the CD.

Linux OS Driver Installation
To install the Ethernet card driver for Linux OS:
1.
Within the Linux Terminal, install the source RPM package:
rpm -ivh netxtreme2-<version>.src.rpm
For Red Hat Linux:
For SuSE Linux:
2.
CD to the RPM path and build the binary driver for your kernel:
cd /usr/src/{redhat,OpenLinux,turbo,packages,rpm ..}
(For RHEL 6.0 and above, cd ~/rpmbuild)
For Red Hat Linux:
For SuSE Linux:
ASUS PEB-10G Series
3-5
rpm -bb SPECS/netxtreme2.spec
or
(For RPM version 4.x.x)
rpmbuild -bb SPECS/netxtreme2.spec
Note that the RPM path is different for different Linux distributions.
The driver will be compiled for the running kernel by default. To build the driver for a
kernel different than the running one, specify the kernel by defining it in KVER:
rpmbuild -bb SPECS/netxtreme2.spec --define “KVER <kernel
version>”
<kernel version> in the form of 2.x.y-z is the version of another kernel that is installed
on the system.
3.
Install the newly built package (driver and main page):
For Red Hat Linux:
For SuSE Linux:
3-6
Chapter 3: Driver installation
rpm -ivh RPMS/<arch>/netxtreme2-<version>.<arch>.rpm
where <arch> is the machine architecture such as i386:
For Red Hat Linux:
ASUS PEB-10G Series
3-7
For SuSE Linux:
3-8
Chapter 3: Driver installation
rpm -ivh RPMS/i386/netxtreme2-<version>.i386.rpm
Note that the --force option may be needed on some Linux distributions if conflicts are
reported.
The drivers will be installed in the following path:
2.4.x kernels:
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/kernel/drivers/net/bnx2.o
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/kernel/drivers/net/bnx2x.o
2.6.0 kernels:
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/kernel/drivers/net/bnx2.ko
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/kernel/drivers/net/bnx2x.ko
2.6.16 and newer kernels:
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/kernel/drivers/net/bnx2.ko
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/kernel/drivers/net/bnx2x.ko
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/kernel/drivers/net/cnic.ko
Newer RHEL and SLES distros:
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/updates/bnx2.ko
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/updates/cnic.ko
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/updates/bnx2x.ko
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/updates/bnx2i.ko
/lib/modules/<kernel_version>/updates/bnx2fc.ko
ASUS PEB-10G Series
3-9
4.
Unload existing driver if necessary:
rmmod bnx2
rmmod bnx2x
If the cnic driver is loaded, it should also be unloaded along with dependent drivers:
rmmod bnx2fc
rmmod bnx2i
rmmod cnic
5.
Load the bnx2 driver for the BCM5706/BCM5708/5709/5716 devices:
insmod bnx2.o
or
insmod bnx2.ko (on 2.6.x kernels)
or
modprobe bnx2
To load the bnx2x driver for the BCM57710/BCM57711/BCM57711E/BCM57712
devices:
insmod bnx2x.o
or
insmod bnx2x.ko (on 2.6.x kernels)
or
modprobe bnx2x
To load the cnic driver:
insmod cnic.ko
or
modprobe cnic
To load the bnx2i driver:
insmod bnx2i.ko
or
modprobe bnx2i
3-10
To load the bnx2fc driver for BCM57712 device:
Chapter 3: Driver installation
insmod bnx2fc.ko
or
modprobe bnx2fc
service bnx2fcd start
6.
Note that the inbox kernel may have an older version of bnx2, bnx2x and cnic driver. It
is important for FCoE offload user to unload these inbox versions before attempting to
load bnx2fc driver. You can do either of these two options:
a)
