Cannot add Intel X520 to Debian based hypervisor

Postby cwesterfield » 2018-09-24 14:41

I'm looking for some troubleshooting help, and the proxmox forums seem to be unable to give suggestions.

I'm attempting to add an Intel X520-DA1 to a Dell T630 and each time I do it proxmox refuses to boot up. At first I thought it was a BIOS issue, but the server actually gets past bios and starts to boot into the OS.

I know that this is the debian forum, but I thought you guys might be able to help since proxmox is just software installed on top of Debian (possibly with some other changes).

The Pieces

  1. Dell T630 with UEFI BIOS fully updated and Secure Boot off
  2. Proxmox fully updated (5.2-9)
    • Debian GNU/Linux 9.5 (stretch)
    • Linux version 4.15.18-1-pve (build@pve) (gcc version 6.3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18+deb9u1)) #1 SMP PVE 4.15.18-15 (Wed, 04 Jul 2018 15:42:56 +0200)
  3. Intel X520-DA1

It boots fine with the card out, but when I add the X520-DA1 and it will not boot. It gets to the image and then reboots.
I pulled it back out, but I'm not sure how to proceed.

Here's the syslog, but it doesn't look like any info that helps.

I powered down the server around 13:20 to install the card and gave up and removed the card and fully booted the server back up around 14:25.
Syslogs for that time:
