    Hi.
    It's not about my VDXes this time, yet I hope an expert or two could comment.
    I have a couple of boxes which sport Emulex Corporation OneConnect cards, 1 NIC each box, which NICs connects directly (so directly attached cables) to each other (no switches) and those work, meaning communicate, but... only till next reboot!? After which reboot such a "link" can only be brought back through physical re-connection - suffices to pull SFP cable out from one box and a second later push it back.

    So I wonder if there can be some kernel/module (Linux) parameters which can be filled with - would anybody know? - in order to remedy this weird behaviour.
    many thanks, L.
