Can’t add interface to dataplane
I’ve got an Aquantia AQC107 that I’m trying to add to the dataplane without much success.
DPDK website shows that the card is supported by the atlantic driver. And, the card is indeed seen by DPDK. But it’s also seen by the host. Even though I’ve set the card to down and /etc/netplan/00-installer-config.yaml doesn’t contain an entry for the device the host still sees it as ens1. DPDK sees the card, but says it is an active interface. This prevents me from adding it to the dataplane.
I do have several other Intel NICs that I have successfully added to the dataplane but they’re all using
igb_uio or vfio-pci drivers.
Are you able to use a mix of drivers like this? If so, how can I prevent the host from trying to use the card?
