ODA X7 – no network connect after setup / re-image


Yesterday, I’d prepared an all new X7-2M. During the setup process / network configuration (using VLAN), I ran into a problem: Despite the network configuration was setup absolutely correct, any try to connect to the system from a jumphost was unsuccessful. 

Long story short: If You want to use the SFP28 (Fiberchannel) ports an ODA X7 offers, You have to do some config changes, to make it work. 
First of all: do a firmware upgrade to version 20.08.01.14 or above. 
Next, configure the nic / nics to force the speed to 10000 and turn off autonegotiation. 

The firmware as well as a detailed description of all necessary steps can be found in MOS Note 2373070.1 ‘Using the onboard SFP28 ports on an ODA X7-2 server node’
