So I've been dinking around on my setup, and realized today that one of my MD's actually only has a built-in 10/100 ethernet card (on-board). I originally thought it was a 1000 gig-e, but after further review... it's not. Seems that since I got version 1.0 of the board (MSI CN700t), they only had 10/100 ethernet cards integrated to the board, it wasn't until the new revision of the board contained a gig-e card.
In any case, it's a small form factor mini-itx to be precise, which means adding a simple PCI card for gig-e isn't an option. However I came across a USB Gig-E ethernet adapter that I thought might do the trick but wanted to find out what drivers I would need to use to get it working in LMCE 710. It's called the "Sabrent USB-G1000" and offers data speeds up to 2000 Mbps.
I'm curious if it's as simple as disabling the on-board NIC, plugging in the USB NIC, and going. Or If i'll need to edit the /usr/pluto/diskless/43/etc/initramfs-tools/modules file to add the correct driver and run the Diskless_InstallKernel.sh script?
What's the easiest way to update to this NIC, and what drivers should I use?
