We are aware of your situation regarding the Intel® SSD DC P3520 Series that you are not able to locate NVMe* using ledctl.
We would like to let you know that the SSD works with the Inbox drivers that are included in the Kernel of your operating system.
For support on ledctl we advise you to contact the CentOS* support communities in order to get assistance on this situation.

# isdct show -all -intelssd
isdct not able to detect the intel ssds
Thanks for the update. Could you please let us know how are you connecting the SSDs to the motherboard? Are you using a RAID controller? Are you connecting the SSDs directly to the motherboard?
In order for you to be able to use this tool, the SSDs need to be connected directly to the motherboard. If the SSDs are connected to a RAID controller, the software would not be able to detect them.
Thanks for the information provided. Could you please confirm the Kernel version you are running on the system?
Hi Junior M,
Please find the details below.
$ cat /etc/centos-release
CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)
$ uname -a
Linux node1 3.10.0-514.el7.x86_64 # 1 SMP Tue Nov 22 16:42:41 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
It seems that you are using an old Kernel version. We suggest you update the Kernel to its latest version.
Please let us if that helps.
We haven't heard back from you in a while. We would like to know if there is something else we can assist you with.
