Did you get them to work?I tried all 5 of mine, and either I'm doing something wrong, or they're all duds. I'm working with windows 10 and I can't get the ports to recognize. They all say they're disconnected. Installed the driver's, updated firmware, no dice.
I tested a couple of mine tonight, and they are working just as expected. I will finish testing the rest on Friday night when I have more time.
Here's what I did,
- Installed 2 of the 314A-BCCT (Pro dual port) cards in my test system (SM X9SCM-F)
- Booted with the MLX Bootable ISO and updated the firmware on both adapters to the latest
- Using a QSFP+ cable cross connected the cards
- Booted into VMware, and the link was established, lights come on and both cards are seen
When I did the cross connect and tried to do the FlexBoot as a simple test, the link light did not come on. I'm guessing this is because the card, in FlexBoot mode is not really configured as anything.
You should get a link light, even in Windows 10 if you cross connect two cards together.
Some of my cards are missing the plastic filters that show the link light, so you have to look carefully.
Also, in VMware, it reported the port "Down" on ports that do not have a valid QSFP cable installed and connected.
If you can try with multiple cards in the same machine, it might help you do more testing?
