Network interfaces missing after latest update

Post by gehing » 2021/06/08 01:25:32

I have a motherboard ASRockRack C3758D4I-4L with 4 NICs. In Centos version
CentOS Linux release 8.4.2105
it shows all network interfaces:

After installing the latest update, Iit only shows the first network adapter, enp5s0f0, and I am not able to start the other interfaces, When I try to start one of the other interfaces, I am getting this error:

Connection activation failed: No suitable device found for this connection (device enp5s0f0 not available because profile is not compatible with device (mismatching interface name)).

Please help. I had to go back to the older version to use all network interfaces. I am running IPFire in a virtual machine that uses all 4 network cards.

What is the output from lspci -nn | grep -i net? Each of those lines in the output will include the PCI vendor and device ids in the format "[vvvv:dddd]", take those numbers and plug them into the command

grep -i vvvv /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/modules.* | grep -i dddd

on both the working and non-working kernels and see what they both report. The lines you see output there should look like

/lib/modules/4.18.0-305.el8.x86_64/modules.alias:alias pci:v00008086d0000100Esv*sd*bc*sc*i* e1000

and the last field on the line tells you which kernel module supports that PCI vendor/device id.

Try dmesg | grep -i ixgbe on the non-working kernel.

Note: https://www.asrockrack.com/general/prod ... ifications says:
- Marvell 88E1543(4L)
- LAN1 Supports NCSI

However, lspci shows "Intel X553". Fascinating: "X553, a dual-port 10 GbE LAN controller integrated into the Intel Atom® processor C3000 product family." Ahh, the board has Atom and Marvell is "just a tranceiver". Furthermore, MAC addresses have "ASRock Inc" vendor-part.

If "LAN1 Supports NCSI", then that port differs from the other three.

Is there a solution? I was wondering if downloading and building the latest ixgbe driver would fix this issue.
I see that the driver is only tested with RHEL 8.3, not RHEL 8.4

Compare the entire output from dmesg | grep -i ixgbe on both working and non-working kernels. Are there any differences? I suspect you're going to end up needing to report this as a bug on bugzilla.redhat.com.
