Hello rajeshsg, We would highly appreciate if you can share to us where the Ethernet Controller 10 Gigabit X540-AT2 is integrated to. If this is an OEM on-board Ethernet controller, it would be best if you can get in touch with your manufacturer for further support since they might have customized drivers and software to enable or alter features on your system.
