Detailed Description


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.

Supported operating systems

Microsoft Windows Server* 2008 R2 and later
Windows PE* 3.0 and later
Linux Kernel* 2.6/3.x and later
Red Hat* Enterprise Linux* 6.5 and later
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server* 10 SP4 and later
UEFI 2.1 and later
Oracle Solaris* 11
VMWare* ESXi* 5.5 and later
FreeBSD* 10.1 and later


  • On systems running Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, or ESXi, the base driver must be
    present for QCU to function correctly.
  • On Microsoft Windows* systems, if the driver required to run the tool is not present on the system, it will automatically be installed when QCU is run.
