Hi, i'm using baremetal too, i have one esxi host and one gen8 box with xpenology installed, all works fine.
So i decide to play with 10Gb nic card to use iSCSI as storage for esxi host, i bought 3 cards, one dual port to install on xpenology, and other two for my desktop pc and my esxi host.
I don't have any switches, i connect esxi 10Gb card directly with one port on dual port card in xpenology, defined iSCSI lun and target, assigned ip on same class on both hosts ( xpenology and esxi) try to ping frome one to each other, no ping response, both webinterface show me card connected, so i assume both are working, tcpdump on xpenology on 10Gb card, show me no packet comes from somewhere
when ping from esxi to xpenology, networking are up and running.
I suspect there is some trick on synology because i have the same problem if i connect my desktop pc with xpenology via 10gb card.
As far you know there is some bond beetwein number of physical cards and boot argument if_number=(number of card ) ?
After my regular work i will try to figure what's wrong, but i suspect is boot arg if_number
Many thanks for the answer.
