At work, I have an RS6000 running AIX 5.3. The on-board NIC controller
failed. I installed a dual-port Intel Pro 10/100/1000 NIC card.
When I start the server, the Intel card isn't recognized. SMIT doesn't
see it either. What do I have to do in SMIT so that I can use the card?
Define isn't recognized. Do you lspci (pciuitls)? My guess is you
don't have a driver. What does dmesg say? Try to look on intel's
website for a driver, although you might have to roll your own. I
looked quickly on the AIX page but I couldn't find the HCL (Hardware
compatibility list). I'd check if your card is on that too.
