Trying to identify a card?

We have around 100 of these cards and are trying to figure out what they are. 

When installed into Windows it says it is a Solarflare Flareon Ultra 8000 Series Adapter

When the drivers are loaded, it says SFC9240

On the card I see;

SF10-05020

SF-109041

Is there a link to a product manual or specifications of some type?  What is the model of the card?

Anyone know?

Re: Trying to identify a card?

The various product briefs for the SFN8000 series can be found here: https://www.xilinx.com/products/boards-and-kits/8000-series.html#documentation The "SFC9240" has picked up the name of the controller. This chip powers multiple different 8000-series cards. The full driver name should appear in the network adapter properties dialogue box. Or if you want to send us the serial number of MAC address, we can check that for you. (The first four digits of the serial number will tell you the model number) (The other stickers you see look like regulartory numbers)

Re: Trying to identify a card?

This is great information, thank you!  On that page there is a SFN8522, SFN8522M, SFN8522-ONLOAD, SFN8522PLUS.  Do you know how I can tell the difference?  One of the serial numbers is : 852200213000 172867100322 Mac address is 00-0F-53-5A-F2-20.

Re: Trying to identify a card?

These cards are hardware identical, differring only in what features are activated in the factory. To work out the different model number, you would need to check feature activations (e.g. by using "sfkey") From the serial number, however, I can see this is a -Plus variant card. Specifically: SFN8522-Plus XtremeScale 10GbE server I/O adapter with LL firmware, Onload license and PTP license

Re: Trying to identify a card?

Hi.

 

Product manuals for the 8000-series can be found at:

https://www.xilinx.com/products/boards-and-kits/8000-series.html#documentation

 

SFC9240 refers to the chip.  Which does indeed correspond to the 8000-series of cards.

 

This specific card will be an SFN8522.  The SFN8542 would identify as "Solarflare Flareon Ultra 8000 Series 10/40G Adapter"

 

You can check more details of the adapter using powershell:
