I have brand new UCS C220 M5 server with Intel Ethernet Controller X550-T2 (Slot L) and Intel X710 (Slot 1)
Esxcli network nic list:
Does not list the X550 ethernet. Only lists X710.
Lspci -v | grep -A1:
Lists both X550 as vmnic0 and vmnic1 as well as X710 as vmnic 2 and vmnic3
Updated the IXGBEN driver to 1.7.20 (Latest driver for the X550 from VMware.
I then enabled the driver using esxcli system module set –enabled=true –module=IXGBEN
After reboot there is still no changes.
I reviewed the vmkernel log and I see the following lines which incandescent only guess it means it is not installing the driver for the device.
-Register driver ixgben from module 18
-initialization of ixgben succeeded with modulen18
-ixgben loaded successfully
-Attaching ixgben driver
-device 0000:3b:00.0 pciBar 0 bus_addr xxxxx
(Note….the device is the X550)
-ixgbe_validate_eeprom_checksum_x550:2624 : invalid eeprom checksum
-ixgben_initsharedcode:323: invaled eeprom checksum
-ixgben: indrv_attach: ZZ7Z Failed to init shared code
-DMA engine ixgben destroyed.
When I look at lspci -p
I see both X550 devices (0000:3b:00.0 and 0000:3b:00.1) attached to vmklinux module
When I run the vmkload_mod -l
I see the ixgben driver modules running.
Other things I did was re-install 6.5 using the Cisco custom image. I have also install the ixgbe driver. I have enabled all optionROM in the BIOS.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
