The be2net driver included with SLES10 SP4 lacks support for both the Emulex BladeEngine 3 (BE3) and IBM  x3750 M4 Dual port 10GB SFP+ Ethernet Adapter Card.


To perform network installations and to use the BE3 device or IBM  x3750 M4 Dual port 10GB SFP+ Ethernet Adapter Card after installation, an updated be2net driver is required.  An ISO image with a new kernel and initrd with an updated be2net driver can be downloaded from
