We have spent some time trying to get SGMII ethernet working through the RJ-45 port of the VCU118.
We have read other posts regarding this issue and have not found a working solution. We are now trying to do a simple read from the PHY via the MDIO interface with PHY address = 0 0011. It appears that we are doing everything as documented in figure 17 of the TI DP83867ISRGZ PHY datasheet. I have attached our waveforms.
Our next step is to cycle through different PHY addresses to see if any of them work.
Looking for other suggestions.
I also scratch my head and ask why didn't Xilinx test the RJ45 interface as part of the VCU118 board interface test outlined in XTP439. Does this interface actually work?
Thanks for the help.

follow up - we just tried PHY addr 0x1111 and it we got a response from our PHY. Interestingly enough the schematic has 0 1111 for the PHY address. I cant explain it. This differs from all the other documentation and our review of the PHY strapping on the board itself.
I would still appreciate an answer on the board interface tests or an eplaination of why 0 1111 is the appropriate PHY address if someone has it.
