Post GigaByte MA770-UD3 rev. 1.0 + Intel Pro 1000PT PCIe NIC
- AMD770 / AMD700 chipset
- BIOS f8 (12-08-2009)
- onboard Realtek NIC is not supported
- NIC: Intel Pro 1000 PT / EXPI9400PT - single port PCIe server adapter
(controller chip 82572GB)
- CPU: AMD Quad Core Phenom II - 810 (2.6 GHz)
- Memory: 4 x 2G Corsair DDR2 - 800Mhz / 8GB
- VT active in BIOS
- 2 x SATA 500 GB Disk (Samsung)
- 1 x SATA 2TB Disk (Western Digital)
- graphics adapter: switched from ATi X600 to an old PCI Matrox G200
with very low power consumption
- ESXi 4.0.0 (build 171294)

Works without any problems (uptime 6 weeks so far). I'm currently hosting an 64bit ubuntu server (squid, caching dns) and 3 Windows servers (SVN, Fileserver, HTTP) for my office.

Network issues: stay away from the the Intel Pro 1000 GT PCI desktop adapters. I've tested three adapters of this kind on the ESXi 4.0 server and all of them caused "e1000_clean_tx_irq: Detected Tx Unit Hang" - errors during samba/lan manager file transfers > 50 MB.

Gerhard.
I cannot confirm this issue. With MA770T-UD3P there is no network hang during Samba copy using the desktop NIC.
What switches are you using? What are the settings for speed/duplex?

Gerhard mentions that he's using ESXi 4.0. The graphics cards isn't that important and a basic one will do as the console for ESXi is very basic.

so the issue he had with file transfer was an isolated case?
1000 GT still good?

I have 2 intel GT pro desktop cards, albeit de LP ones I thnk.
The are not recognised at all by vmware.

I have a V7-H55 barebone with onboard 8111 which works with a posted oem here.

Does anyone know how to get those GT Desktop adapters to work?

Can you post the PCI id for the NICs? If you have ESXi installed (or are trying to install it) you can use this process - http://www.vm-help.com/esx40i/find_PCI_ID.php.

hi Dave,

Thanks for your quick response.
I have already installed ESXi 4.0 with the help of this wonderfull forum.
The strange thing is, lspci does niet show the device.

Since I have two of those cards, suspecting I would not need a patch for the realtek, I will try and fiddle a bit and see if they are visible under an ubuntu live cd.

Here is my lspci -v:
