We’ve been using vyatta/vyos for 6 or 7 years now. Until today we’ve been very happy with it. Many gigabit units and the last 3 or 4 years all vmware vmxnet 10GB virtual servers. Things have worked great.
Until today. First we had to disable the XHCI and USB 3.0 to get it to install whatsover from USB.
Then none of the 10GB interfaces are coming up.
Tried the latest 1.1.7 and the build of today with the 1.2.999.
Interesting approach and timelines. The devices in them are not supermicro, they are intel and broadcom NICs The two top NICs used by enterprise which are not only moving to 10G but also 40G and 100G. 1G Nics are not used anywhere in data centers now. For VyOS to progress beyond the “Home Lab” these are the type of things that need fixed. As Enterprise admins we are willing to try opensource things, but if there is no support from the native community it is time to move on. Very sad as we have been exclusive vyatta, vyos for 8 to 10 years.
I know this is an old thread but the SFP ports not coming up have nothing to do with VyOS. I am running the same server on CentOS 7 and it doesn’t come up because the linux drivers don’t support auto negotiation.
If you want to use the SFP+ ports you have to configure the speed/duplex settings because the controller cannot auto negotiate. In CentOS 7 if you try “ethtool -s eno8 speed 1000 duplex full” the link will come up.
I had a 1Gbit SFP on the switch connected to the server thats why the speed was set to 1000. I am not familiar with VyOS yet but I am planning to run it on these servers.
You have to edit the interface config to make the speed/duplex config permanent.
