Adding support for Interface Masters Niagara Pass-Through Interface Cards to DB Firewall (DBFW) (Doc ID 1681384.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 24, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall - Version 12.1.2 to 12.1.2 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall AVDF 12.1.2.0.0 and 12.1.2.1.0 (AVDF)

Goal

Interface Masters Niagara pass-through NIC support was removed in AVDF versions 12.1.2.0.0 and 12.1.2.1.0 because of driver compilation issues when these versions of AVDF were released.

Now we have obtained the latest drivers from the vendor and support for the cards will be added again from 12.1.2.2.0 onwards.

Before 12.1.2.2.0 is released, it is possible to add support for the cards on versions 12.1.2.0.0 and 12.1.2.1.0 of AVDF via the manual steps outlined in this note.

For anybody following these instructions, we would recommend to upgrade to 12.1.2.2.0 as soon as possible after release of that version.
