Wanted to get some help in regards to Mellanox and XCP-NG.
Background: Dell R710 (google appliance) , XCP-NG 7.6, Mellanox Connectx-2 PCI-Epress x 8 10GBe, Ubiquiti SFP+ modules LC, Mikrotik 10G switch.
Few days ago my 10G cards arrived for my freenas and xcp-ng. I installed 1 into freenas setup the NIC and all is right in the world. Installed other card into XCP-NG booted it up and opened XCP Center. Check the NIC’s out and it says Disconnected.
Now i know the card is good because I tested it in a windows 10 machine connected to the mikrotik switch, grabbed an ip and everything. So cables good mods are good and switch is good. So the only thing left i can think of is firmware on the card or drivers in xcp.
Yes I know that i have 2 devices right now and that DAC cable would be easier and cheaper but the plan is to add other servers with connection to freenas so we need the switch right now.
