I just got these ConnectX-4 Lx in the mail, but not getting very far.They work perfectly and don't need a driver download from mellanox, debian has and will have the mlx kernel driver included in it like, forever probably. Removing that would be like removing the Intel ixgb driver
I've been treating this like the ixgbe driver: I see
Kernel driver in use: mlx5_coreand am trying to create virtual functions in
/etc/modprobe.d/mlx5_core.confwith some options like
options mlx5_core num_vfs=12 port_type_array=2 probe_vf=12, but predictably dmesg says it's ignoring those options as they are "unknown".
Reading the docs over at nvidia show these as valid options, but only for their MLNX_OFED driver. Any tips and or resources here? I'm not finding much for the kernel driver other than the kernel.org docs, but not seeing much about vfs. Is the core driver not enough, and if so, how do I enable the EN driver in the kernel? Thanks for any help!
