Hello jsavlen,


Thank you for posting in Intel Ethernet Communities. 


For us to further check the issue, please provide the following details.


  1. Are you using a PCIe X710 or onboard/embedded network card?
  2. What is the brand and model of your board/system?
  3. Are you having issues with your X710 network controller?


If you have questions, please let us know. In case we do not hear from you, we will make a follow up after 3 workings days. Thank you.

Hi Michael,

The card is an Intel X710 PCIe add-on card

Its installed in an Oracle X6-2 server w/two Intel Xeon Processor E5 V4 Series

I upgraded the NVM firmware to version 8.7.0 without issue.

I was able to upgrade i40e to 2.17.15 when the system was running Oracle Linux 7.9

i40e upgrade, running Oracle Linux 8.3 and 8.5, build failed error indicated missing or incompatible kernel-devel packages

Installed new kernel-devel packages. 

I tried i40e versions 2.17.15 to 2.20.12 with the same result

I hope this provides a clearer picture.

 

Thanks,

John
