I was wondering if anybody could give me a pointer in the right direction. We have installed Citrix XenServer 5.6 and now want to add a Brocade 825 card to the server. I am aware that the 825 is not natively supported by XenServer and think I have installed the NoArch Rpm files as per http://community.brocade.com/message/13471#13471.
A quick overview of what I have done to try and get these up and running
1. Extracted brocade_driver_linux_126.96.36.199.tar.gz to a memory stick
2. Mounted the memory stick to /mnt/tmp
3. Tried the installer with "./brocade_install.sh" This returned the error "ERROR: Install failure: no gcc and kernel-xen-devel-188.8.131.52 rpm"
4. Tried "yum install bfa_driver_linux-184.108.40.206-0.noarch.rpm". This wouldn't install due to the driver not being signed.
5. Tried "yum --gpgcheck install bfa_driver_linux-220.127.116.11-0.noarch". This seemed to work. Used the same command on the "bna_driver_linux-18.104.22.168-0.noarch.rpm" and "bfa_util_linux-22.214.171.124-0.noarch.rpm"
Rebooted the server and the XenServer still doesn't see anything on the otherside of the 825.
I am obviously doing something wrong if anyone can help I would be very much appreciative.

Hopefully this will give someone some pointers.
