hi. i have dell and supermicro brand x540 t2 rj45 10g ethernet cards. I have a slackware linux diskless server. I have the Mikrotik CRS326-24G-25 + RM switch and mikrotik S + RJ10 10g rj45 sfp hardware. client computers report tftp timeout errors. If I get the ethernet card from 10g port to 1g port, the client computers boot without any problem.

Hello sahinms,


Thank you so much for sending the pictures of the card. And upon further inspection, this card is indeed an OEM card. As much as we want to help you on the connection it is best to contact Dell and/or Supermicro regarding this issue. They should have a list of supported SFP+ cables for their card and they should assist you with the installation and setup. Even if they are using Intel X540 chip, there is big chance that these cards are altered depending on their design.


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.


Best regards,

  2. If you have an image of the card with visible markings, can you send them for me to check?

  4. Can you share any screenshot of the issue?

Hello sahinms,


I am really sorry, I cannot see the branding and the markings of the card. And can you send the SSU file via private message to me? I need to further check this issue. And also, what is the brand and model of the server system?

Hello sahinms,


Thank you for sending the SSU logs via private message, however the logs is empty. Please help generate the logs and click in scan everything for us to see more details about the system. And if you can send more pictures of the network cards with clear markings, that would help us identify the cards and further assist you.
