Configuring XL710 on Centos 7

I am trying to configure a XL710 interface card on Centos 7 with two 10G ports. The host is a DELL R610.

I have installed the latest drivers and up graded the firmware.

The network card does not come live - I have it connected to another R610 with IXGBE interfaces through a optical/copper interface - which shows that the optical interfaces of the XL710 are not live.

When I try yo use QCU to configure the interface it does not recognize the interface, but when I run nvmcheck4e it recognizes the interfaces.

Is my problem that I cannot set the configuration through QCU or is it something else?

Regards

John

Hi Doonhammer,

Thank you for the post. Can you provide the serial number of the XL710 network adapter model? The serial number comes with the format of

15 alphanumerics + 6 alphanumerics + 6 alphanumerics -3 digits

Please feel free to update us.

wb,

Thanks for the reply - from the driver support forum we figured out the problem is that we are not using Intel Optics. I have just ordered some and will try that.

Regards

John
