Hi all, I have an Intel XL710-QDA2 dual port 40Gb adapter.
https://ark.intel.com/products/83967/Intel-Ethernet-Converged-Network-Adapter-XL710-QDA2 Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter XL710-QDA2 Product Specifications
I am trying to connect the adapter to my network but do not have any certified XLDACBL1, XLDACBL2, and XLDACBL3 or QSFP+ transceiver at the moment.
I have a few units of Dell Networking Cable QSFP+ to QSFP+ 40GbE Passive Copper Direct Attach Cable, believed to be OEM from Amphenol.
Not sure if the cable can work with XL710-QDA2 adapter? Fyi, the adapter will used to support iSCSI. Appreciate any advise / experience sharing.
