DCHP fail w/ Intel i210 lan port in Boradwell-EP platform

DCHP fail w/ Intel i210 lan port in Boradwell-EP platform
Hi ,
We see a strange behavior w/ ipxe in Intel Broadwell -EP platform (PCH :8900).
We have 2 I210 lan w/ NCSI , one is 5:0:0(port 1) another one is 6:0:0(port 2).
We can get dhcp ip from dhcp server through port 1 , but port 2 can't get dhcp ip from dhcp server.
In Port 2 , ipxe will try to do dhcp discovery and cause timeout w/ debug mode .(error code :28086011 and 040ee119)
When I use the tftp server to get pxelinux.0 and boot w/o IPXE , both ports can download image and remote boot correctly.

(my dhcp server is Centos 6.6)
I also try to use other platform (Broadwell-DE soc) w/ 2 I210 lan w/ NCSI (8086:1533) , one is 8:0:0(port 1) another one is

9:0:0(port 2).
Both ports are workable for boot w/ ipxe (dhcp action can be finished).
I also find other Broadwell-EP board w/ I210 (PCH:C610),the issue still happen.
When I find a Broadwell-EP board w/ I350 (PCH:C610 ), I can boot correctly .
(PCIE bdf is 8:0:2 and 8:03)

May I have your suggestion or comment ? or someone also saw the same issue before .

Thanks!

RE: DCHP fail w/ Intel i210 lan port in Boradwell-EP platform
you are using undionly.kpxe correct?

Have you tried ipxe.pxe instead?

When using undionly driver only the port on a multiport nic that ipxe (undionly.kpxe) was chained via will be available (this supposedly is a limitation of the UNDI stack)

Yes , I use the undionly.kpxe in original test.

I try to replace the Intel pxe rom to ipxe rom in BIOS rom file base on it is a on-board chipset today.
And I can boot successfully from 1st I210(5:0:0) ,but still stop on dhcp discovery from 2st I210(6:0:0).
It seems get the same result from ipxe rom.
And Sorry to make confuse about i210 port 1 and 2, we use 2 I210 x1 (1 port) on board lan as our management port.
1st port is 5:0:0,and 2nd port is 6:0:0. (that is why I said port 1 and port 2)

May I have your idea or comment about this issue?

Thanks!

RE: DCHP fail w/ Intel i210 lan port in Boradwell-EP platform
Why are you trying to replace the ROM?
could you just boot ipxe.pxe, ipxe.lkrn or ipxe.iso and see that it works before trying to replace the existing ROM with intel.rom ?

RE: DCHP fail w/ Intel i210 lan port in Boradwell-EP platform
Because it is my first use ipxe to boot. From the original cognitive point of view, change pxe rom may be directly from ipxe.pxe boot.
Later found to be in tftp path replace undionly.kpxe to ipxe.pxe.
After I change to ipxe.pxe in my server site, both I210 ports is workable in my platform through ipxe.
Thank for your help. Smile
