2.4.4 *possible bug* with Intel C3858 and Interface Auto-Detection on 10Gb interfaces
I'm not a developer (also my first possible bug report) of any sort but i hope I am providing enough detail for this post to be helpful.
Motherboard: SuperMicro A2SDi-TP8F | https://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/atom/A2SDi-TP8F.cfm
PF Sense Version: pfSense-CE-memstick-2.4.4-DEVELOPMENT-amd64-latest.img
PF Sense Download Date: 07/04/2018
Nics: 4x 1Gbe (Pro 1000) | Quad LAN with Intel Ethernet Controller I350-AM4
Nics 4x10Gbe (Pro/10Gbe) | C3000 SoC 2 10GBaseT, 2 10Gb SFP+
When attempting to setup interfaces on PFSense 2.4.4 using autodetection none of the 10Gbe interfaces are ever detected to have a link up so autodetection doesnt seem to work.
Doing the same thing with the 1gbe interfaces works fine just like normal.
Steps I am doing to produce bug:
select option 1 for assign interfaces
select n to assign vlans first
select a to use interface autodetection
plug in a ethernet cable into one of the 10Gbe copper ports wait for light to come up on port
select enter to use autodetection at which point it says "No link-up detected"
I also have a screenshot below that shows this process since the supermicro board has ipmi.
Not sure if this qualifies as a bug or not and i know the c3858 is fairly new which is why i needed to use 2.4.4 since it has driver support for this version of free bsd.
Hopefully this is a helpful bug report. Please let me know if I should submit it elsewhere.
please open a bug report on redmine.pfsense.org.
(and then let me know)
Thank you for the reply I have done as requested and created a bug report on Redmine.
Since this is my first I wasnt sure if I was supposted to fill out assignee so i left it blank.
Also I selected "Interfaces" for the category as that seemed most logical to me.
