Thank you for the post. It is recommended to use supported Intel fiber module for X710-DA2.

Thanks for the response. New to the networking world so forgive my naivety
1) I have a CentOS7 Linux box with an X710-DA2 NIC. If I now use Intel E10GSFPSR (SFP+ SR Optic) modules and loop port 1 to port 2 through OM3 MMF, I should see a connection?
2) I am in development mode and would like to get by this roadblock while my order goes through purchasing. Is there some way to get the X710DA2 to "allow_unsupported_sfp=1"?
