finially found by myself. the option can be LLDP=0,0 for my issue.
Holy F**k Bruce you found the cause.
To be honest the type "Array of Int" bothered me a lot and I didn't check it further.
I tried your solution and it activate the LLDP feature on 2 of my 4 port NIC.
This means that if you want to deactivate the LLDP agent from intel on a 4 port NIC you have to give LLDP=0,0,0,0 as parameter. Each 0 corresponding to one NIC.
Many thanks Bruce for this finding !
Jeff, when you will get the intel driver, be careful of those parameters.
Have a nice day !
Found this yesterday and forgot to asnwer, that LLDP=0,0,0,0 should be used if you need to enable all 4 ports.
Hi. I actually cannot go to the new driver yet . It is not on the Dell PowerEdge HCL yet. Soon I hope!! And I imagine Dell will some new firmware release package to go with it. I am glad everyone says this works finally though. Thanks,,,
I finally got this to work by running i40en driver version 1.5.6 and running the following command: esxcli system module parameters set -m i40en -p LLDP=0,0,0,0.
Thanks! That works for me as well, I did need to reboot the host to get it effected, though.
