Hi, that information is already in my post:

1. Operating System: CentOS 7.1 (RHEL7) / Kernel 4.1.3

2. Driver version: Stock Kernel 4.1.3 driver which is 4.0.1-k

3. Steps to replicate the issue: Using bonding mode 1 (active/passive) the issue happens intermittently when the link state changes.

Hi s_mcleod,

 

Thanks for replying.

 

I see that you are using the built-in driver in CentOS*. Please try installing our driver. You may download the driver here:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/60020/Intel-Ethernet-Controller-X540-AT2 Intel-Ethernet-Controller-X540-AT2 Drivers

 

Alternatively, you can also check for tested driver provided by your system or motherboard manufacturer.

 

We await your test results.

 

Sincerely,

 

Sandy

Hi Sandy,

Two questions:

1) Thanks for the link, I see that the driver you've suggest is a few minor revisions ahead of whats in the current Linux kernel, tell me - in those minor revisions are there any updates that could relate to this crash?

2) The drive you've linked me to only seems to support old Linux kernels 'latest 2.4 series kernel as well as 2.6.x and 3.x versions' - no mention of the current stable Linux Kernels 4/4.1/4.2 etc... ?

Unfortunately Supermicro's website is very hard to navigate and they're not very good at releasing driver updates.

Hi wb,

The stable kernel version is currently 4.1.3 though?

- What does 'Various Bug fixes' entail?

- Your source code fails to build:
