Cisco BBSM 5.2 Gigabit Ethernet NIC Driver Note


The Cisco BBSM 5.2 accessory kit includes the Disk Drive CD, which contains the Intel PRO/1000 Server Adapter driver. This driver is not included in the Microsoft operating system. If your BBSM server has Intel PRO/1000 Server Adapter PCI network interface cards (NICs) and you are reinstalling the BBSM 5.2 software using the Version 5.2 CD, you must install this driver on the internal and external NICs during the BBSM installation process. To perform this installation, you must refer to the Cisco BBSM 5.2 and BBSD Software Installation Guide as well as this document. Make sure that you have a copy of both documents before you begin.


Note If you perform a BBSM installation using the image that is included on the Version 5.2A Restore CDs, it is not necessary for you to install the Intel PRO/1000 Server Adapter driver because the driver is already on the image.


Installing the Driver

Using the Cisco BBSM 5.2 and BBSD Software Installation Guide, follow the normal BBSM software installation process through Step 23 (on page 1-8) of the "Configuring Windows" section.


Note In the "Configuring Windows" section, replace steps 24 through 26 with these steps:

Step 24    Click Finish. Wait while your server automatically reboots.
Step 25    Log on as administrator with the proper password. The Windows 2000 Configure Your Server                 window appears.
Step 26    Minimize the Windows 2000 Configure Your Server window.

Begin the driver installation procedure after you complete Step 26.


Follow these steps to install the Intel PRO/1000 Server Adapter driver:


Step 1 Remove the Windows 2000 Server CD, and insert the Disk Drive CD into the CD-ROM drive.

Step 19 Remove the Disk Drive CD from the CD-ROM drive.

Configuring the NICs

The following procedure describes the process for configuring each of the two NICs in your BBSM server. One of these NICs is the internal interface, and the other NIC is the external interface.


Caution Before you begin, make sure that the two NICs are connected, or the server will not recognize them. They must remain connected throughout the entire installation process, or problems will occur. You also need to determine which of your NICs will be designated as internal and external ahead of time. Note the names of each NIC as you will have to refer to them later.

Follow these steps to configure the first NIC:


Step 1 From the BBSM desktop, right-click My Network Places, and choose Properties. The Network and Dial-up Connections window appears.

Step 2 Right-click on either NIC, and choose Properties.

a. Uncheck Client for Microsoft Networks.

b. Uncheck File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks.


Note Only Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) should be checked.


Step 3 Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and choose Properties.

Step 4 Click Use the following IP address radio button.

Step 5 Enter the IP address and subnet mask for the NIC you will configure first.


Note If you are entering data for the external NIC, also enter the IP address for the Default gateway.


Step 6 Verify that the Use the following DNS server addresses radio button is selected. Leave the following two fields blank:

Preferred DNS server

Alternate DNS server


Note When you exit the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window, you might see a message that says The DNS Server list is empty. If you do, click OK. The next time you view the TCP/IP settings, you should see 127.0.0.1 in the DNS address field.


Step 7 Click Advanced.

If you are configuring the internal NIC and you want a singlenet configuration, go to Step 11.

If you are configuring the internal NIC and you want a multinet configuration, continue with Step 8.

Step 8 From the IP addresses area, click Add.

Step 9 Enter the multinet IP address and subnet mask information.

Step 10 Click Add again.

Step 11 Click the WINS tab.

Step 12 Uncheck the Enable LMHOSTS lookup check box.

Step 13 Click OK.


Note If you see the message, This connection has an empty primary WINS address. Do you want to continue?, click Yes.


Step 14 From the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window, click OK.

Step 15 From the Local Area Connection Properties window, click OK.

Step 16 Repeat steps 2-a through 14 for the second NIC.

Step 17 Close the Network and Dial-up Connections window.

Step 18 Using the Cisco BBSM 5.2 and BBSD Software Installation Guide, follow the normal BBSM software installation process beginning with Step 3 (on page 1-13) of the "Configuring the Server" section.


Note Continue through the "Renaming the NICs" section, which ends on page 1-22. Then return to this document, and continue to the next section, Disabling the Offload Transmit TCP/IP Checksums.



Disabling the Offload Transmit TCP/IP Checksums

After you complete the previous steps and install the Intel PRO/1000 Server Adapter driver, you must perform this procedure to provide full support for the BBSM "plug-and-play" feature:


Step 1 From the desktop, right-click My Network Places, and choose Properties. The Network and Dial-up Connections window appears.

Step 2 Right-click AtNatMP, and choose Properties. The AtNatMP Properties window appears.

Step 3 Click Configure. The Intel(R) PRO/1000 XT Server Adapter Properties window appears.

Step 4 Click the Advanced tab.

Step 5 From the Property pane, select Offload Transmit IP Checksum.

Step 6 Click the Value drop-down arrow, and choose Off.

Step 7 From the Property pane, select Offload Transmit TCP Checksum.

Step 8 Click the Value drop-down arrow, and choose Off.

Step 9 Click OK.

Step 10 From the AtNatMP Properties window, click OK.

Step 11 Close the Network and Dial-up Connections window.


This completes your Ethernet NIC driver installation. Using the Cisco BBSM 5.2 and BBSD Software Installation Guide, continue on with the "Starting the BBSM Installation" section on page 1-23. Follow the remaining procedures in the installation guide as you normally would.

TAC Case Priority Definitions

To ensure that all cases are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established case priority definitions.

Priority 1 (P1)—Your network is "down" or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Priority 2 (P2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Priority 3 (P3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Priority 4 (P4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
