I’m going to pull my data before I start screwing with firmware updates, in the meantime, antiduh, if you’re still around and reading this, do you have any additional info about the Redhat version or drivers or other procedure I can try?

The time now is Also, afacli requires libraries that are no longer available in Debian distributions. A spare controller worked fine. Big thanks to everyone for listening.

When the systems boots, after the BIOS loads, a message is displayed with the card name and firmware revision. Finally we pulled it out of the Silicon Mechanics machine and stuck it in the Fedora machine.
