Problems and Pitfalls

Have observed that onboard NIC (Realtek RTL8211 Gigabit Ethernet controller) does not work OOB. Not recognized in lspci. Have not spent much time troubleshooting as yet, as it was trivial to add a supported NIC. Manufacturer site does indicate the following:

"Due to different Linux support condition provided by chipset vendors, please download Linux driver from chipset vendors' website or 3rd party website."
