How to use Xeon D-1500 as NTB-RP over PCIe


Hi, I am new in the development of PCIe. My target is to connect Jetson TX2 with Intel Xeon D-1500 processor over PCIe link. I want to use D-1500 in NTB-RP mode and connect it with TX2 over PCIe. How can i enable the NTB mode in Ubuntu 20.04 or any guide related to NTB and its hardware connectivity will be help full.

Thank you.
