      Notes:

      This v15.1 sw release replaces all previous sw releases for IBM eServer System x Intel-based Ethernet products.

      The key updates with this v15.1 software release include:

      • Support Intel 82599-based 10GbE 42C1810 option (FRU 42C1812) for BladeCenter.
      • Support all System x servers with 82575-based or 82574L-based on-board Ethernet.
      • Support Intel 82580-based Gigabit Ethernet Adapters for IBM System x.
      • Fix a device driver memory leak issue found with Microsoft Windows operating system.
      • Enhanced PROSETDX for Windows 2003, 2008, and 2008 R2.

      Some important notes:

      • From the CD Autorun GUI, for Windows, click on Install Drivers for automatic device driver and management sw install or update - and click on View User Guides for all
        online guide and installation instruction details and product information.
      • It is strongly recommended that, for Windows installation, you use the Autorun.exe from this sw CD and run " Install Drivers and Software " for complete installation of
        Windows device drivers and associated PROSETDX software.
      • For Linux driver software installation, please read the readmefirst.txt file provide in the \Linux folder prior to any installation.
        • For 1GbE, from \PRO1000\Linux folder, there are e1000, e1000e, and igb drivers. Read readmefirst.txt file to determine which driver applies to your specific product.
        • For the 49Y4232 FRU adapter and 49Y4242 FRU adapter, igb is the driver.
        • For 10GbE, there is only ixgbe driver, from \PROXGB\Linux folder.
      • All device drivers for 10 Gigabit Ethernet are in the \PROXGB folder.
      • For enabling/disabling WoL or Remote Boot features on each applicable ethernet port, in DOS, go to \APPS\TOOLS or \APPS\BOOTAGNT\, and use ibautil.exe.
        Please read ibautil.txt for command line instructions. In general, WoL enabling/disabling is -WOLE / - WOLD and PXE boot enabling/disabling
        is -FE / - FD.For example, to disable WoL on all ports, run:

        ibautil -all -wold

        Or, to disable WoL on a specific port, run:

        ibautil -nic=xx -wold ( where xx = 1-40 )

        For EFI, go to \APPS\EFI\ and use lanutilx64.efi tool. You can also use these tools to flash the adapter to latest boot ROM flash code.
      • For other applicable end user tools, go to \APPS\TOOLS folder.
      • For Intel iSCSI boot and F6 drivers, go to \APPS\iSCSI\ folder.
      • For Windows PE support for 10 Gigabit Ethernet 42C1810 option (FRU 42C1812), there is \WinPE folder in the Windows device driver folder for each supported Windows NDISx level in \PROXGB.
      • The 42C1810 (FRU 42C1812) 10GbE CFFh daughter card is fully 802.3ap Clause 73 AN compliant for 1G/10G Auto Negotiation. This requires the connected switch to also be Clause 73 AN complaint for full Clause 73 1G/10G Auto Negotiation support. If the switch is not Clause 73 AN compliant, please force the connected switch port to fixed 10Gb for parallel detect.
      • The IBM Nortel-based 6-port 10Gb Ethernet Switch Module (Option 39Y9267, FRU 39Y9265) is not Clause 73 compliant. It is Clause 37 compliant only. For Wake on LAN support between the 42C1812 card and the 39Y9265 switch, you must disable Auto Negotiation on the switch port connected to the 10Gb card, and configure the link speed on that port to fixed 10Gb, Full Duplex.
