I’m building a freenas 11.2 U5 system on a Dell R720. I’ve put an IBM M1015 card in (flashed to LSI firmware and working as IT). My problem is I cannot get the four NICs at the rear to go faster than 100Mb/s. When I go into the bios they are set to auto, but the drop-down then only offers 10Mb or 100Mb. There is no option for 1Gb. I’ve looked in the user manual in case using a x8 card in the riser for the LSI card affects anything, but there is no mention.
The NICs are listed as Intel 1000 connections in the bios, so why the speed restriction? I could just put some 1Gb cards in the riser slots, but why are the built in ones not working.
