Hello,
it will not work with 1.1.x
you may want to try 1.2 from here https://downloads.vyos.io/?dir=rolling/current/amd64

Yes it is working with this version . As this is not a stable version , do you thing that it is safe to go production with this ?

Thanks

I’ve started running rolling in production for us. Nothing heavy duty, but I’ve not encountered any bugs. At least not ones that weren’t also in 1.1.8, like setting the syslog port.

go with intel nics, it´s mostly safe

you could also install 1.2 and the add 1.1.8 as a system image and boot to that
add system image https://downloads.vyos.io/release/1.1.8/vyos-1.1.8-amd64.iso
I have two servers in production using the Intel x552 nics and i haven’t had any issues, with 11 virtual routers running. One has been up 168 days since i made them.
