I have a network adapter XL710-Q2 and I want to use QSFP+ to 4x10G breakout cable.
I need to activate 4x10 mode in NIC, but I cant. When I run ./qcu64e utility, I get a error:
# ./qcu64e /nic=1 /info
Intel(R) QSFP+ Configuration Utility
QCU version: v2.27.10.01
Copyright(C) 2016 by Intel Corporation.
Software released under Intel Proprietary License.
QSFP+ Configuration modification is not supported by this adapter.
I have the latest firmware and drivers:
# ethtool -i eth2
firmware-version: 5.04 0x800024d0 0.0.0
I attached device photo with serial numbers.
Please help me to resolve this issue.

Thank you for sharing the front and back picture of your network adapter, Based on your mac address (00:E0:ED), it belongs to Silicom Ltd. Kindly check with Silicom if they have similar utility to achieve the desired configuration.
Thank you for you answer. I know that my NIC is by Silicom, but the chipset made by Intel, so I thought that my question is for you. Any way, I didn't find such utility from Silicom, and its so sad.
