I configured the onboard NIC to use DHCP, it ([FILE]re0[/FILE]) has an ip of 192.168.1.4, and I also assosiate a second IP to the onboard NIC, 192.168.1.30 (jail IP). I configured the PCI NIC to use DHCP, it ([FILE]em0[/FILE]) has an IP of 192.168.1.12. I have both NICs connected to an unmanaged switch. Everything seems to work perfectly and I can ping both NICs just fine.
The problems comes in when I use my PCI NIC for NFS or [FILE]iscsi[/FILE], I can usually connect to NFS or [FILE]iscsi[/FILE] for a few seconds / minutes on the 192.168.1.12 address but it always stops responding. At which point I can't ping 192.168.1.12 from anywhere on my network (except from being ssh'ed into the box using the 192.168.1.4 IP). I don't see anything in [FILE]syslog[/FILE] (using FreeNAS console). A local [FILE]ifconfig[/FILE] makes it seem like the interface is still working perfectly fine. I can get the interface to work again using [FILE]ifconfig em0 down[/FILE] and [FILE]ifconfig em0 up[/FILE] but using [FILE]iscsi[/FILE] or NFS makes the IP unreachable once again. [FILE]iscsi[/FILE] and NFS work perfectly ok using my 192.168.1.4 IP.
Not sure if it's the card's fault (link below), the switch's fault, or if I configured something wrongly. Thanks for the help!
