AXC763 SFP+ DAC CABLE with Intel X710

Is there any known compatibly issue with the AXC763 SFP+ DAC CABLE and the Intel X710 Converged Adapter? I can't seem to get a link with this. I'm using a M4300-12X12F but have also tried directly connecting each port on the X170 without success. I also have Broadcom 57810 adapters that work fine.

Hi jg1

 

No there's no known compatibility issue with Intel® adapters.

 

I would advise to run latest 12.0.2.9 software on your M4300-12X12F, since we fixed some DAC issues with that release.

Can you upgrade your 12X12F first thing following the release note indications?

 

On a separate note, Intel® NICs usually require Intel SFP and SFP+ modules, they are locked or very picky like most servers / storage are (requiring same brand DACs).

That's the reason why we strive to support Third-Party DAC cables, as long as they are MSA standard. Another option could be, try the Intel® Ethernet SFP Twinaxial Cable 3 meters XDACBL3M and let us know how it goes with 12.0.2.9 latest software.

 

Regards,

I'll get the firmware updated on the switches. 

 

According to Intel the card should "support direct attach cables that comply with SFF-8431 v4.1 and SFF-8472 v10.4 specifications"

Thanks for the reply.

Hi jg1,

 

Welcome to Netgear Community!

 

I tried in my local environment. It's ok.  I Connect M4300-12X12F to PC(Inter X710) with AXC 763 DAC Cable.

So I suggest you can update your Inter X710 adapter dirver and try again.

Below is the detailed information:

I was able to update the firmware on the M4300-12X12F but it had no effect. I'll look to update the x710 firmware.

I updated the Firmware and Driver on the card and still no link. I switched the card to a Windows 2008 server and still no link. I'm not sure what else it could be besides the cable.

1) do you have more DAC763? Could you try another one?
2) Could you provide the output of 'show fiber-ports optics-info all'?

Port 10 is connected to the x710.

 

I've tried 3 different AXC763 cables with none working.

Re: AXC763 SFP+ DAC CABLE with Intel X710

does it come up if you use AXC761 instead? and could you post the techsupport file too?

you can go to the GUI, maintenance->export->HTTP file export, select 'techsupport file' to get techsupport file.
