x11sdv-8c-tp8f (xeon-d 2146NT) compatibility?



  • Just curious if 2.4.4 would be compatible with the supermicro x11sdv-8c-tp8f.

    WOuld the following NICs be functional?

    • Quad LAN with Intel Ethernet Controller I350-AM4
    • Dual LAN with 10G SFP+ LAN via SoC
    • Dual LAN with 10Gbase-T

    and finally, would the QAT be functional down the road?

    thx in adv

    Not sure I've seen anyone try it. I would say it's massively overpowered for most pfSense installs.
    You can check the list of supported hardware in the ix driver which would be required for the 10GbE NICs.
    https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-src/blob/e6b497fa0a30a3ae23e1cb0825bc2d7b7cc3635c/sys/dev/ixgbe/if_ix.c#L59

    I would expect the i350 to work no problems though.

    There may be other components that require support.

  • just following up for others... all interfaces powered up with no fuss with 2.4.4.
