QSFP+ Configuration modification is not supported by this adapter for XL710 QDA2

Hi ,

I was trying to set up Intel XL710 in 2x40 mode using the QCU but I am getting the error ""QSFP+ Configuration modification is not supported by this adapter."

Although If I try to check the current configuration it shows the mode as N/A.

All the steps that I followed:

[root@ndr730l:/tmp/EFIx64] ./qcu64e /devices
