Hi John

	So far, DTS can support most of intel NICS includes X710DA2. And for the OS, it also can support.

Hi All,

We are setting up a system that will be our “DTS Tester”.  In the DTS documentation under System Requirements it indicates that the supported tester NICS are "Intel® 82599 (Niantic) NICs”.

"The board assigned to be tester should be installed the latest Fedora distribution for easily installed DPDK Test Suite required python modules. Tester board needs plug at least 2 x Intel® 82599 (Niantic) NICs (2x 10GbE full duplex optical ports per NIC) in the PCI express slots, then connect these four Niantic ports to the DUT board and make sure the link has been started up and speed is 10000Mb/s.”

We would like to use the Intel X710DA2 NIC’s instead, so my question is, are these NIC’s also supported in DTS ?

Also, we are planning on using ubuntu 16.04, is that a supported host for the DTS tester ?

Thank you,
