    Need help configuring X710-DA2 with Cisco SFP-10G-SR SFP module

    roger_h

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to test that I can send and receive traffic on my X710-DA2 NIC

       

      - I am using CentOS 7

       

      - Using

      ethtool -p p1p1 successfully lights the LEDs associated with the p1 connection

      ethtool -p p1p2 successfully lights the LEDs associated with the p2 connection

       

      - I have a Cisco SFP-10G-SR module installed in each of the ports on the X710-DA2

      - I tried

              a loopback cable (TX to RX on p1)

              looping the fiber optic cable from p1 to p2 connecting RX to RX and TX to TX

              looping the fiber optic cable from p1 to p2 connecting RX to TX and TX to RX

       

      None of this worked ...

       

      It was suggested to me that on the X520 card I may have to use ixgbe to set the switch to allow_unsupported_sfp=1


      Is there something equivalent for the X710-DA2 ???


      Thanks,

      Roger
