We are working with 2 vendors (OS and hardware) and are stumped on an
issue. We have a server with 4 X710 cards installed. We have perhaps 500+
servers configured this way. Now, in installing Openstack with DPDK. we are
seeing a number of systems fail with cards in random slots failing
initialization apparently due to the # of VSIs set to 0. We can not figure
out why some cards show VSIs:66 and some VSIs:0 but the 0 value cards
always fail init. Any help would be appreciated.
