Change service profile association new hardware

Hello there.

We are changing the blade on a service profile from a B200 M2 to a B200 M3 because

we need more memory on this fysical server SQL server.

But when I try to boot it hangs att reboots i think its because its a different fiber adapter driver on M3.

We are booting on SAN disk.

How can I install the new fiberadapter drivers to the server (Windows 2012)

Hello Tom,

What adapter is installed on new B200 M3 server and old B200 M2 server ?

If it is Cisco VIC adapter, you need to install enic ( LAN ) and fnic ( HBA ) drivers on the Windows server.

I had the same problem. Updating the driver (at least in Windows 2008 R2) did not help. The new device needs to be added in the CDDB (critical device database) in the registry. See this blog http://jeffsaidso.com/2012/07/painless-hardware-upgrades-with-cisco-ucs/ 

It might well be, that enic/fnic driver for your B200-M2 are not according the interop. matrix for B200-M3, see

I don't see B200-M2 being certified for Windows 2012 ?
