Applies to:

Sun Fire X4170 M2 Server - Version Not Applicable and later
Oracle Enterprise Linux 4.0


X4170 M2 server has two dual-port 10GbE cards installed, yet an ifconfig -a only shows one interface from each card (plus the 4 on-board 1GbE interfaces).


The physical interfaces that do not appear in ifconfig -a do not have the following line associated with them in an lspci -v output:

Kernel driver in use: ixgbe

The working interfaces do.
