M620 (VRTX) Blade Onboard NIC CTRL S issue at boot

This question is not answered

Hello,

I have a DELL VRTX with two M620 blades installed. At boot...only one of the blades shows the CTRL +S for the onboard Qlogic 10GBe NIC. I cannot get into the MBA on the second blade to configure partitions. I tried the booting to a QLogic uediag.exe DOS boot disk and running "uediag.exe -mba 1" but this didn't enable the MBA.

I do not see any options within the VRTX to do this (which makes sense)...

Can someone direct me to how to do this?

Much appreciated.

  • Update...I have downloaded the DOS utilities and ran the UEDIAG.exe -mba 1 command, rebooted and I still do not see the option to hit CTRL S to get into the NIC.
