Microsoft Windows Changes
This post illustrates the changes to be made on Windows OS. For other OS, check either HP or Broadcom documentation.
(1) Network Driver
Boot to Windows OS. The recommended network driver version is 184.108.40.206b or above. To confirm the driver version, goto 'Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System', open 'Device Manager', expand 'Network adapters', right click on 'Broadcom NetXTreme Gigabit Ethernet Plus' adapter and select 'Properties'. In the driver tab, verify the 'Driver Version'.
In case the driver version is old, to get the latest driver, download Broadcom's 'NetXtreme Software Kit' version 220.127.116.11 or highrer. Extract the archive, go to the folder 'B57HPCD-DT-v18.104.22.168/MgmtApps/x64' and run,
setup /s /v /qn
This option will install the required driver and the software required for DASH management.
Note: Broadcom NetXtreme Software Kit can be obtained from either HP support or Broadcom support site.
(2) Broadcom Management Agent
Open 'Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools\Services' windows and ensure status of 'Broadcom Management Agent' is 'Running'. If it is not running, check if 'Broadcom NetXtreme Software Kit' version is right and is correctly installed.
(3) Broadcom WMI namespaces
This is additional verification step. Goto Start\Run, enter 'wbemtest' and click OK. In the window, Connect to 'root\BrcmBnxNs' namespace and verify if connect is successful. If connect fails, check if 'Broadcom NetXtreme Software Kit' version is right and is correctly installed.
Note: You could add the right version of Broadcom NetXtreme Software Kit to your organization's OS image.
