I'm trying to find drivers for an Intel 10G network adapter that we want to use with an HP server. The server has Ubuntu 12.04 LTS installed (3.8.0 kernel).
I've looked at the instructions on this page: http://support.intel.com/support/go/network/adapter/proidguide.htm Intel® PRO/100, PRO/1000 & PRO/10isGbE Network Adapter ID & Driver Guide . I get this from the lspci -nn |... command:
0a:00.0 Ethernet controller : Intel Corporation Device [8086:155d] (rev 01)
0a:00.1 Ethernet controller : Intel Corporation Device [8086:155d] (rev 01)
The 155d device is nowhere to be found in the table on that page - this is rather bizarre. Our order data says the card is a "INTEL ENET SRV BYPASS ADAPT X520-SR2". I found X520-SR2 and downloaded and installed ixgbe 3.18.7 (using sudo make install), but it doesn't seem to find any adapters. Same for 3.19.1:
$ dmesg | tail

Am I doing something wrong?
