X722 LOM unable to negotiate to 1Gb?

We are struggling for a few days, trying to connect a server with an X722 LOM (dual port) to a switch that has some 1gb available ports only.

 

Can you help me to understand which media type is supported? e.g. 1000base-SX or 1000base-T (RJ45)?The documentation I've found so far is somehow confusing and E10GSFPSRX connector seems to be unable to negotiate at just 1Gb (10Gb is not an option).

 

TIA

Hello GSabb,

 

Thank you for the reply.

 

Mentioned on product brief of Intel® Ethernet Network Adapter X722, only 10GbE single-rate optics are supported. Please visit page 3 of this link for more details.

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ethernet-products/network-adapters/ethernet-x722-brief.html

 

Since this is an OEM on-board Ethernet controller, it would be best if you can also get in touch with Hitachi for the supported transceiver on this controller. They might have customized drivers and software to enable or alter features on your system. Thus, they are in best position where you can seek assistance so you don’t lose features or customizations of the Ethernet controller. Please visit this link for Support Options for Intel® Ethernet Controllers

Let us know if you have additional questions and clarifications on this matter.

 

Looking forward to hear from you.
