[DPDK] testpmd shows link down even though it is up.

Hello everyone,

 

I've been trying to use DPDK's NFP poll mode driver inside a docker image to bind a Netronome NIC, however when running testpmd the link is always shown as "down" even though it is up (it has been tested in other ways). 

 

The NIC is visible under Network devices using DPDK-compatible driver when running 
dpdk-devbind.py --status after running the following commands:

modprobe vfio-pci
dpdk-devbind.py --bind=vfio-pci 5e:00.0
 

However when running the following, it is still shown as down in testpmd.

./app/dpdk-testpmd -- -i
set link-up port 0
show port info 0
 
Any ideas?
