Config Notes
1) Install: An ISO image of the SLES11sp1 Install Media was used to install the Operating System via Virtual DVD-ROM device.
2) PLDP network driver: The PLDP Driver ixgbe.ko was installed and tested on Intel X540-AT2 and 82599EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controllers. The driver can be downloaded from http://drivers.suse.com/driver-process/pub/update/Intel/sle11sp1/common/x86_64/intel-ixgbe-3.7.14-1.x86_64.rpm and http://drivers.suse.com/driver-process/pub/update/Intel/sle11sp1/common/x86_64/intel-ixgbe-kmp-default-3.7.14_2.6.32.12_0.7-1.x86_64.rpm and http://drivers.suse.com/driver-process/pub/update/Intel/sle11sp1/common/x86_64/intel-ixgbe-kmp-xen-3.7.14_2.6.32.12_0.7-1.x86_64.rpm
