PSOD Caused by Intel X710 NICs?

Anyone have issues with Intel X710 NICs? I have four server I built over a year ago with the X710 NIC and no issues. I created a customized ESXi ISO with the i40e v1.4.28 drivers. Those servers are still running ESXi 6.0.0, 4510822. I used the same customized ISO recently on slightly different Supermicro servers. I left the i40e drivers at v1.4.28 but upgraded ESXi to 6.0.0, 6921384. Two out of four servers crashed. I then upgraded i40e to v2.0.6 which states in the release notes "Fix PSOD caused by small TSO segmentation" but again another server PSOD. Mind you, both the original servers and the ones I am working on now all have TSO and LRO enabled.

I just changed to native i40en 1.3.1 drivers, but haven't had a chance to test yet. My biggest concern is why are these servers crashing when the other are not?

Attached is one of the PSOD messages and below is part of the dump log.

Make sure you are using the VMware certified Drivers and Firmware for your Nic's, I had the same problem with 2 Servers in our farm. Hope that helps.

All drivers are direct from VMware's website.

Hello ITaaP,

Yes there are known issues with this and driver/TSO recommendations accordingly:

https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2126909

Hope this helps.

Yes, that is the KB I saw. Issue was supposed to be resolved with v2.0.6 which is what I was running last when another server crashed.

Hello ITaaP,

Not aware of the exact specifics and no internal-access at the moment to research further,

but I do recall on some of the other threads here others mentioning that when using some vendors of server couldn't get PSOD-free without disabling TSO.

I guess I can try that as a last resort. Will see have the native 1.3.1 drivers work first. Just want to be sure it is just a driver issue with the X710 since it is not affecting our other Supermicro servers.

Hello ITaaP,

Aye, that seems to be the crux of the issue though - unfortunately not all drivers/firmware play equally well with all hardware.

Also, are you changing the firmware here to match the drivers you have tried?

I ask as the HCL listings for these devices (may vary for your specific model/vendor) appear to be rather varied with respect to what matches with what e.g:

https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=io&productid=40583&vcl=true

Firmware is actually what I first suspected and is an interesting story. Let's start with the servers that have zero issues. They are running firmware 5.02 and driver 1.4.28, which are not matching on VMware's website.

Two of the servers that crashed have two X710 NICs. I checked the firmware version and one was running 4.42 and the other 5.05. I thought maybe running different firmware versions in the same server could be an issue. Since one was already running 5.05, I upgraded the other to 5.05 along with driver 2.0.6. Go figure driver 2.0.7 was not available for download when I was troubleshooting, but now it is.

Both sets of servers are running the same chipset, broadwell processors, and NICs. Yet I can't see why the servers running for a year have never had an issue. One difference is the ESXi release. The good servers are running 6.0.0, 4510822 and the crashing servers are on 6.0.0, 6921384. Thinking maybe it is a combination of the ESXi release and/or NIC firmware/driver, I opened a case with VMware Support. Their response?

This is not a VMware issue.  There isn't anything that we can suggest changing from the VMware perspective.

I am downloading drivers from their HCL, but they can't help... What is the point of having a HCL when if something doesn't work, it is not their problem?

I also came across this article which I thought was interesting. http://www.i-1.nl/blog/?p=58057  I am running microcode revision 0x0b00001b, but so are the servers that haven't crashed, and revision 0x0b00001b is supposed to be good according to VMware's website.

So nothing really makes sense. I can only hope that i40en v1.3.1 works. But if it does, I would still like to understand the difference between the servers I have that is causing the issue. I also have the same servers running the latest 6.5 version, but haven't had a chance to test yet.

I don't see anything in the release notes address this issue. However, I haven't had the issue again since upgrading to i40en 1.3.1.
