Feedback on the Lenovo ThinkSystem ST50

Asked by Giuseppe Blandino

We're installing UBUNTU Server 16.04 LTS on a new Lenovo ThinkSystem ST50 Server. The problem is that Network adapter can't be used.
Kernel installed with ISO image is 4.4.0-142-generic
If I prompt the command "lshw -C network", I see the UNCLAIMED ehernet controller I219-LM
Thanks in advance for your help.

Try using the "Install Ubuntu Server with HWE Kernel" option when you boot the ISO image. The i219-LM controller did not exist when the 4.4 kernel was released and thus is not supported there. The HWE 4.15 kernel for 16.04 should work though.
