Once combined with MSI, you can have individual MSI’s assosciated with each queue, which is where the big win comes in as different CPU’s can handle the different interrupts. Host is Windows 8. Go to original post. I already tried to uninstall VirtualBox and install it again, but the issue persists. If you have the opportunity of experimentation not productively used setups with recent backups you can try the latest For that question, I will provide my most helpful answer yet I’ve been following this thread for awhile now and wanted to make sure it stays active.

This tool uses JavaScript and much of it will not work correctly without i21-7lm enabled. Datasheet The L supports the following interrupt modes: Five MSI-X interrupt vectors are provided calculated based on four vectors for queues and one vector for other causes. It is provided for general information only and should not be relied upon as complete or accurate. Maybe a Windows update – not certain? So, you can handle more incoming data, but the same interrupt still services all of the queues.

This is a computer translation of the original content. Also, are you using anything else on that adapter? Then let’s take the lack of MSI stuff as “god-given” and come back to the question: After that the bridge mode worked and I could update Virtualbox to the 4.


We i217lm directly connected the XT2 in one of the workstations using two cables to two ports of the XT2 on the server and set up ram disks on each end to eliminate the switch and disk speed as potential bottlenecks. I’d be happy to post any settings, screen shots, etc.

Thank you for joining the fun! I hope I’m not interpreting it wrong but your L’s cable doesn’t seem to be plugged in or the connection is deactivated “Ethernet 2” and “Speed: Host is Windows 8. This discussion is locked. But, in my tests, I can’t pin it to anything I can perceive empirically.

We have yet to open a i21-lm ticket as I was hoping this would have been resolved by now — it’s obvious Intel is aware of the issue — but it’s probably time. For that question, I will provide my most helpful answer yet This content has been marked as final.

The workstations still exhibit the behavior in this thread though the ndus2 reports RSS Capable as “True” and has populated indirection tables and speed often drops below Gigabit speeds during these test transfers. Basically, I struggle with that question myself. Please turn JavaScript back on and reload this page.

You can not post a blank message. The L supports the following interrupt modes: But with NAT unfortunately internet does not work from within the VM this problem was ndi2s already with 4. The I is set to enable MSI, but that doesn’t do anything because it’s just using the default the catch all for it’s line interrupt.


Since you come from an enterprise background could you maybe ask Intel to supply a SMB3 Multichannel check-list to follow to find the culprit that prevents it from working properly?

This thread is a gift that keeps on giving. I’m new at this and just read this: Bridged network not working after upgrade from 4.

If the device isn’t capable of it either because it was omitted from the driver, or because the chipset really doesn’t include that feature, no matter what the driver doesthen the net effect is nothing. Even if I chose “Nat”, there was no value in “Name” drop-down list.

Then I decided to uninstall mdis2.

As far as I can tell in my research, enabling MSI just means that MS just puts the device in the MSI enabled bucket, interrupts without the extra message signalling come in like normal on their line interrupt. Please type your message and try again. All guides I’ve nds2 online so far state that “SMB3 Multichannel is so simple, you just have to connect a capable server and client and it will automatically be active”.
