I have 6.2 running smoothly on three X2100 M2 units.
The primary NICs are Broadcom, the secondary ones are Nvidia as part of
the chipset (FreeBSD does not recognise those).
One issue I have is that the embedded management software can run on NIC
1 only. And once FreeBSD detects this, the embedded management software
is disabled. Does anyone know of a way to make FreeBSD detect NIC 0 only?
Another funny thing is that the embedded management software works under
MSIE only. Not exactly what I would expect from Sun. :-)
Apart from the issues above, I have no problems whatsoever.
