Fields for system name and system description should be filled for lldp requrests on SR-IOV adapter
This feature will prevent failure in handling and configuration and enhance failure determination.
When requesting lldp information of Power systems from the switch port the network department can confirm that they are working the the correct syst...
We recognized that SR-IOV / vNIC implementation have a different behaviour when the physical link is having problems. This leads to flapping adapters in some cases. Shared Ethernet Adapters (SEA) have different kind of parameters to configure to p...
