    Configuring XL710 on Centos 7

    doonhammer

      I am trying to configure a XL710 interface card on Centos 7 with two 10G ports. The host is a DELL R610.

       

      I have installed the latest drivers and up graded the firmware.

       

      The network card does not come live - I have it connected to another R610 with IXGBE interfaces through a optical/copper interface - which shows that the optical interfaces of the XL710 are not live.

      When I try yo use QCU to configure the interface it does not recognize the interface, but when I run nvmcheck4e it recognizes the interfaces.

       

      Is my problem that I cannot set the configuration through QCU or is it something else?

       

      Regards
