OCE(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual			OCE(4)

NAME
     oce -- Device driver for Emulex OneConnect	10Gb network adapters

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device pci
	   device oce

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   if_oce_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     Emulex OneConnect adapters	come in	various	skews and with different com-
     binations of NIC, FCoE and	iSCSI functions.  The oce driver claims	the
     NIC functions in all these	adapters.

     The oce driver supports VLAN Hardware offload, TCP	checksum offload, TCP
     segmentation offload (TSO), Large receive offload (LRO), Bonding, Jumbo
     frames (from 1500 - 9000),	Multiple TX queues, Receive-Side Scaling (RSS)
     and MSI-X interrupts.

HARDWARE
     The oce driver supports the following network adapters:

     +o	 Emulex	BladeEngine 2
     +o	 Emulex	BladeEngine 3
     +o	 Emulex	Lancer

UPDATING FIRMWARE
     Adapter firmware updates are persistent.

     Firmware can be updated by	following the steps below:

     1.	  Copy the below code to a Makefile:

		KMOD=elxflash
		FIRMWS=imagename.ufi:elxflash
		.include <bsd.kmod.mk>

     2.	  Replace imagename in above with UFI file name

     3.	  Copy Makefile	and UFI	file to	a directory

     4.	  Execute make & copy generated	elxflash.ko to /lib/modules

     5.	  sysctl dev.oce.<if_id>.fw_upgrade=elxflash

     6.	  Reboot the machine

     In	case of	issues with supplied UFI, flashing fails with one of the fol-
     lowing errors.

     1.	  "Invalid BE3 firmware	image"
     2.	  "Invalid Cookie. Firmware image corrupted ?"
     3.	  "cmd to write	to flash rom failed."
