I have Intel X520 Card and i am trying to set it up open fcoe in Redhat 6.X host. I am unable to find wwpn number I am doubt whether my card supports is CNA capable that is it support fcoe or I need to load any drivers.
I have Intel x520 10 Gig card.
Below is the lspci output
0c:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82598EB 10-Gigabit AF Dual Port Network Connection (rev 01)
0c:00.1 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82598EB 10-Gigabit AF Dual Port Network Connection (rev 01)
0e:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82599ES 10-Gigabit SFI/SFP+ Network Connection (rev 01)
0e:00.1 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82599ES 10-Gigabit SFI/SFP+ Network Connection (rev 01)
Thank you for the post. What is the serial number of you X520?
You may look for the complete serial# at the white sticker on the NIC itself.
Here is the website for your reference.
Thank you for the information. The serial number looks different, can you please locate the serial number on the white sticker (with bar code) on the network adapter. The format goes like 15 digits + 5 digits + 6 - 3 digits.
The X520-DA2 is in the supported FCOE network adapter list
Please check on steps on page 2 of this guide to configure
Do you have the serial number of the network adapter?
Its in remote location hence i am unable to get the serial # . I have asked remote admin to share the serial number and yesterday he have shared model numbers instead of serial number hence. I will requested again to share serial number and i have not got reply. I am waiting for reply.
By seeing exact model number in Intel website it concludes that it will support Fcoe.
Now I am hitting another problem. Modules not supported is any specfic model for this card?
ixgbe 0000:0e:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 28 (level, low) -> IRQ 28
ixgbe 0000:0e:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
ixgbe: 0000:0e:00.0: ixgbe_check_options: FCoE Offload feature enabled
ixgbe 0000:0e:00.0: failed to load because an unsupported SFP+ or QSFP module type was detected.
ixgbe 0000:0e:00.0: Reload the driver after installing a supported module.
ixgbe 0000:0e:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
Thank you for the update and taking time to obtain the serial number.
Intel X520 series network adapter required the use of supported modules.You may refer to this website for the support modules, scroll down to refer to the table:
Hope the above information help and clarified.
Sorry I cannot able to get this serial number as this in Server and they are testing for other things. I dont have supported modules Is there any way i can mask this this supported modules check?
Our X520 series network adapter used 82599 ethernet controller, but based on your output
it shows 82598EB ethernet controller, that is why I would like to know the exact serial number
to identify the NIC. You may refer to this link for the list of X520 showing 82599 as the ethernet controller http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products/000005612.html
You may refer to the list of supported X520 series network adapter that supports FCOE which I provided earlier.
Thank you for the reply. I don't have information using this command to obtain the serial number. We need to identify your network adapter correctly to better check on this.
