Well, I just updated the driver, still can't add the card in the UI, nor make any changes through omv-firstaid...
Same error message.
The reason I upgraded the firmware is because Aquantia has had some issues with past firmwares and although things have worked, I've had issues with fairly high latency on these cards compared to normal Gigabit. Admittedly it doesn't really affect transfer between the NAS and my PC, but at the same time, I have a habit of keeping my firmwares up to date, regardless of the product. In many cases, it prevents security issues. Besides, I hadn't updated this card for the better part of two years, so I figured it was high time. And no, nothing went wrong during the firmware upgrade, as both cards are working and can communicate with each other.
The card clearly still works, the issue is with the error message I get when trying to make any changes through OMV.
So who am I supposed to contact if not OMV about the issue? Especially as having installed the latest drivers from Aquantia, solved nothing.
I thought the point of this forum, was to report issues and not having to use some third party service.
I really loath how hard it is to do, what should be simple things, like updating drivers, in Linux. Every time, I spend hours and hours doing simple tasks.
Beyond this issue, everything else, is mostly working, well, except every time there's an update for Docker, something breaks...
Sorry, I'm too attached to these cards, as I went through a whole heap of trouble getting them at the time.
And I hope you understand that although I'm venting frustration here, it's not aimed at you, since you actually try really hard to help people on the forums. I just find the way a lot of things are done the Linux world very frustrating.
