Hi Fieldben,

Thank you for the post. Can you help clarify if you are referring two different X520-DA2 here on separate server? Is there any way you can get the complete serial # of both network adapters?

The serial number can be found on the white sticker on the NIC (90E2BA0DE616 + 5 digits + 6 digits - 3 digits) Thanks.

Are both network adapters connecting to the same switch ?

Hi Fieldben,

 

 

Good day. Please help provide below information for better investigation:

 

1. dmesg log from both servers.

 

2.

 

"ifconifg -a" output from both servers.

 

3.

 

"flogi database" output from Brocade switch.

 

 

 

Please try latest driver version 4.4.6 to see if problem persist? Latest driver is available https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/14687/Network-Adapter-Driver-for-PCI-E-Intel-10-Gigabit-Et...

 

 

Please feel free to update me. Thanks.
