The driver failed to load because unsupported module type was detected.

Hi,

I am facing issue with i40e driver for Ethernet Converged Network Adopter X710 while using it with 10G SFPs (Fiberxon).

How can I enable an option for allow unsupported sfp in i40e (version 1.2.48) driver?

Thanks in advance,

Ishwar.

Hi Ishwargunjal,

Thank you for the post. It is recommended to use the supported fiber optics, please refer to the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/ethernet-x710-brief.pdf product brief for the fiber optic partnubmer at http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/ethernet-x710-brief.pdf

From what I know the driver is for the network adapter, there is no option to enable for unsupported SFP.

rgds,

wb
