    R520 SR2 Fiber in Promiscuous mode

    Scarecrow57

      I have an Intel X520 SR2 that is connected to an aggregator tap.  This device will be used to montior traffic on the link.

       

      The problem is I get the following message when starting the network:

       

      failed to load because an unsupported SFP+ module type was detected.

       

      However, when looking at the card the link light is on and the activity light is blinking.

       

      So the questions:  How does the card determine if there is a link?  That is does it look to be able to send a signal as well as receive?

      What settings are needed to make the card work in this mode?
