Looking for some assistance here. I have the ICX6650 flashed with the newest firmware and licenses as per the instructions here:
all the 10Gb ports appear to be working, the 2 10Gb breakout ports are confirmed 100% working, not sure yet on the 4 40Gb ports on the back, due to the following reason:
I also have 3 649281-B21 cards, 2 are V2 cards, one is a V4 card. The cards are flashed with the instructions posted at the beginning of this thread. Flashing went well, no issues. Using a windows server 2019 box to do the flashing.
the v2 cards never respond to me plugging in the QSFP cables. The V4 card does respond, but it lights up the connection and then turns off, sometimes multiple times per second. Windows shows no cable attached on the V2 Cards, even though cables are plugged in. I have 8 or so cables that I have tested with, 3 of which are from different manufactures. The cards show correctly in device manager and show as network adapters. I have tried both the VPI and the ETH settings with no luck.
I have also tried moving the cards from my desktop PC with windows server 2019 to my ESXi 7.03 boxes and to another desktop running windows 10, still no luck.
Any recommendations or advice ? I can provide screenshots, more information... anything anyone needs to be able to help.
