This driver is not currently supported by StarlingX. This is more of an enhancement request and, therefore, is not considered gating of any release.

Assigning to the distro.other PL for further action

Hi Huang,
Could you help confirm your NIC could work with Standard CentOS 7.x system?
If yes, I could enable the same configuration in kernel to support the NIC.

Another thing in mind is that, if it is not a server NIC, please don't use it as data/management interface, to avoid cause any issue.

Dear Shuicheng

It works with CentOS 7.4.1788 release
Kernel 3.10.0.-693.el7.X86_64

Best Regards
Ting
