BCM 57800 iSCSI configuration


I'm having issues configuring the network adapter (BCM 57800) as a HBA, eithe from it's BIOS, either from the Lifecycle Controller or from the OS (tried Xenserver 6.5 or 7.1). I have it on

Also followed this tutorial as it covers the storage I have (SCv2020) with the OS I need (Xenserver) but it doesn't recognize the network card as a HBA: https://www.google.ro/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0ahUKEwiDvKL-6erVAhXja5oKHSMiCcYQ...

I'm kind of new to the iSCSI storage world so if anyone has any idears, tutorials, hints or anything, pls go ahead.

I'm starting to come to peace with the idear of configuring it with software iSCSI as I can't afford any more time not having it in production.

Thanks in advance.

What happens when you try to go into the card BIOS and configure HBA mode? Is the firmware on the card up to date?
