Using VyOS 1.2.6, I have a dwdm module that fails to load on boot, or on hotplug, with the error :
[ 6.790363] ixgbe 0000:0d:00.1 0000:0d:00.1 (uninitialized): ixgbe_check_options: FCoE Offload feature enabled
[ 6.891031] ixgbe 0000:0d:00.1: failed to load because an unsupported SFP+ or QSFP module type was detected.
[ 6.891711] ixgbe 0000:0d:00.1: Reload the driver after installing a supported module.
options ixgbe allow_unsupported_sfp=1 RSS=0,0
With a similar dwdm optic (same vendor), only on a different channel, I have no issue.
Is there a reason why the module isn’t loaded even though i’m requesting it should? Any hints on getting this interface up ?
