    Just so you guys know (if you noticed the main site post last weekend) I met with ASRock Rack last week so I had a bit of a heads up to this. I did implore them to get better availability. Even at length explained how Amazon is great with this thing called Prime. Message is out there.

    On the Asrock news page (ASRock Rack > News) they made the announcement which points back to this fourm, however no mention on distribution ETA.

    They should really strengthen their marketing technique and level of communication to potential customers. I've seen announcements as far back as March 2016. If I was in the market back then looking to purchase this product, I would be very sour that 7+ months later and still no distribution.

    I am looking at ASRock Rack > D1540D4U-2L+ and it really fit my needs at home living room needs.
    • I don't need SPF+/10Gbe/LSI3008 these expensive features
    • a full speed x16 that PVE 4 can VGA pci-passthrough (so that I can stream games to my Nvidia Shield TV)
    • a quad port i350 for my PFSense and
    • a 6 HD raidz2 pool + 2 x M.2 SSD as cache & zil
    to bad the board does not support SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V5P512BW - Newegg.com .... I guess all the pcie lane is used up

    Why not just get the SM board. Who knows when ASRock will be out.

    I'm just hoping that the Asrock matx boards don't end up being vaporware. Asrock announced the d1540d4x during Intel's Xeon D launch and that board is nowhere.
    At least the Asrock matx E5 boards could be an alternative.

    So is SR-IOV doable on these with a driver update or no?

    I already bought two of the SM server @ work and I know I need two PCI slot for home usage

    I have successfully enabled SR-IOV and VF passthrough to a PFSense VM on Ubuntu 14.04.3 with Kernel Version 4.2.3, then I got sidetrack converting that server into a PVE4... I will resume testing on a successful ping from a VM today (which means the server need to move into the RACK and away from my workbench, I only had one extra eth @ working area

    Besides the kernel version requirement did you performed any extra steps to enable SR-IOV?
    also is it available on both network chipsets?
    Thanks

    in pve4, its kernel disabled x557 for loading sr_iov . it prevent write to /sys/class/net/eth1/device/sriov_numvfs and it was force set to 0 whereas the sriov_totalvfs was 64

    So far only ubuntu 14.04.3 with kernel 4.2.3 works.... I will try on my other SM1540 server as this pve 4 need to be put in product asap

    KVM is the go-to solution for running server VMs on linux, virtualbox if you want something more desktop-oriented.

    Hi,
    When trying to build the 4.1.5 ixgbe drivers i get the following:

    sudo make
    make -C /lib/modules/4.3.0-040300-generic/build SUBDIRS=/var/tmp/ixgbe-4.1.5/src modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-4.3.0-040300-generic'

    ^

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-4.3.0-040300-generic'
    make: *** [default] Error 2



    any hints on how to solve this?

    I am running:
    lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS
    Release: 14.04
    Codename: trusty

    uname -r
    4.3.0-040300-generic


    Thanks



    [EDIT] ok so maybe this is due to the fact that on ixgbe 4.1.5 release notes it tells us:
    "This is the most current release of the ixgbe driver for Linux, which supports kernel versions 2.6.18 up through 4.2.1."
    And my ubuntu is on 4.3.0 stable kernel.

    Taking in account also this output:
    jfeteira@ubuntukvm:~$ modinfo ixgbe
    filename: /lib/modules/4.3.0-040300-generic/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/intel/ixgbe/ixgbe.ko
    version: 4.0.1-k

    I am guessing that my ixgbe driver is still on 4.0.1, so to upgrade to 4.1.5 I have to downgrade my kernel to 4.2.1 correct?

    The reason I want to have this latest kernel and ixgbe version is due to the support for SR-IOV and VXLAN.

    [EDIT2] just tried with kernel 4.2.5, 4.2.3 and 4.2.1 and same error while compiling :s


    Thanks

    @jonaspaulo

    Might you first use the ixgbe that is upstream in 4.3; the '4.0.1-k' you mention?

    It should be stable and should support SR-IOV on the x557.

    Or is there something in ixgbe 4.1.5 that you specifically require?
