Detailed Description

Update Note:  Record updated on 02/05/2020 (files & file version unchanged)


The Intel® QSFP+ Configuration Utility is a command line utility that allows users to change the link type of the installed QSFP+ module. The supported types are defined within the adapter's NVM. This utility displays only the devices that potentially support QSFP+ reconfiguration. Only one port per device is displayed, since changes affect the device as a whole, not individual ports.

NOTE: A reboot is required to apply configuration changes. On systems running Oracle Solaris* 11, you must perform a full reboot, not a fast reboot.
