2-2 Major Components
The following major components are installed on the AOC-M25G-i2S/i2SM:
1. Intel® XXV710 25GbE network controller
2. Two SFP28 (Small Form Factor Pluggable) ports
3. Two (2) SFP28 Link/Activity LED indicators
4. System Management Bus (SMB)
2-3 SFP28 Ethernet Connections
SFP28 (SFP1/SFP2) Connectors
Two small form-factor pluggable (SFP28) optical transceiver connectors (SFP1
and SFP2) are located on the add-on card. These SFP28 ports provide Ethernet
connections of up to 25GbE. See the layout next page for the locations.
SFP28 (SFP1/SFP2) Link/Activity LED Indicators
Two SFP28 Activity/Link LED indicators are located at LED1 and LED2 on the addon card. LED1 is used for the SFP28 Port1 connector, and LED2, for the SFP28
Port2 connector. The SIOM LED1 and LED2 are dual bi-level LEDs: the top ones
are link LEDs; the bottom ones are activity LEDs. See the tables below and image

Installation
3-1 Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic com­ponents. To avoid damaging your add-on card, it is important to handle it very carefully. The following
measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from ESD.
Precautions
•Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
•Touch a grounded metal object before removing the add-on card from the
antistatic bag.
•Handle the add-on card by its edges only; do not touch its components.
•Put the add-on card back into the antistatic bags when not in use.
•For grounding purposes, make sure that your system chassis provides excellent
conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and
the add-on card.
Unpacking
The add-on card is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When
unpacking your component or system, make sure you are static protected.
Note: To avoid damaging your components and to ensure proper installation, always connect the power cord last, and always unplug it before
adding, removing or changing any hardware components.
17
AOC-M25G-i2S/i2SM Add-on Card User's Guide
3-2 Before Installation
Before you install the add-on card, follow the instructions below.
1. Power down the system.
2. Unplug the power cord.
3. Use industry-standard anti-static equipment such as gloves or a wrist strap
and follow the precautions on previous page to avoid damage caused by
ESD.
4. Familiarize yourself with the server, motherboard, and/or chassis documentation.
5. Confirm that your operating system includes the latest updates and hotfixes.
3-3 Installing the Add-on Card
Follow the steps below to install the add-on card into your system.
1. Remove the server cover, if any, and set aside any screws for later use.
2. Remove the add-on card slot cover. If the slot cover has a screw, place it
aside for later use.
3. Position the add-on card in front of the SIOM slot and gently push in both
sides of the card until it slides into the slot.

card into this slot
Note: This add-on card does not support hot plug. Please turn off the AC
power and remove the power cord from the wall socket before you install
or remove the add-on card.
18
Chapter 3: Installation
4. Secure the add-on card to the chassis, reusing the screws that you previously
removed as needed.
5. Attach any necessary external cables to the add-on card.
6. Replace the system cover.
7. Plug in the power cord and power up the system.
Follow this step to install the add-on card if your system does not support a swappable bracket. Insert the SIOM card in the motherboard and then install the motherboard in the chassis. An internal bracket comes with the AOC-M25G-i2SM controller
which needs to be installed into the chassis before the motherboard is inserted.

Note: It is recommended that the SIOM card installation above be completed by a system integrator or the manufacturer.

AOC-M25G-i2S/i2SM Add-on Card User's Guide
Follow the steps below to install the add-on card into your system that supports a
swappable bracket. The add-on card must be installed in the swappable bracket
before it can be installed in the your system.
1. Install the add-on card into the swappable bracket.
2. Position the add-on card in front of the SIOM slot and gently push in both
sides of the card until it slides into the slot.
3. Once the card is in the slot, push both knobs in and turn to the right to lock
the card in the system. The left knob has the unlock/lock symbols next to it.
To ensure that the add-on is locked, make sure that the knob position indicator is pointing to the lock symbol.

3-4 Installing Windows Drivers (for Intel Fortville-25 XXV710)
Follow the steps below to install the drivers for Windows. Download the drivers from
Intel Download Center or from the Supermicro FTP site at ftp://ftp.supermicro.com/
Networking_Drivers/.
1. Run the CDR-NIC.
2. When the SUPERMICRO window appears, click on the computer icon next to
the product model.
Note: If the FOUND NEW HARDWARE WIZARD screen displays on your
system, click CANCEL.
3. Click on INSTALL DRIVERS AND SOFTWARE.
4. Follow the prompts to complete the installation.

3-5 Installing Linux Drivers (for Intel Fortville-25 XXV710)
Follow the steps below to install the driver to a Linux system.
1. Build a binary RPM package by running this command:
rpmbuild -tb <filename.tar.gz>
2. Be sure to replace <filename.tar.gz> in the above step (#1) with the specific filename of the driver.
Note: For the build to work properly, the current running kernel must
match the version and configuration of the kernel sources that are already
installed in your system. If you have just recompiled the kernel, reboot the
system at this time.
3. Move the base driver tar file to the directory of your choice. For example:
/home/username/i40e
or
/usr/local/src/i40e
4. Untar/unzip archive, where <x.x.x> is the version number for the driver tar
file:
tar zxf i40e-x.x.x.tar.gz
5. Change to the driver src directory, where <x.x.x> is the version number for
the driver tar:
cd i40e-x.x.x/src/
6. Compile the driver module:
make install
Install the binary as:
/usr/local/src/i40e
7. Load the module. For kernel 2.6.x, use the modprobe command:
modprobe i40e <parameter>=<value>
For 2.6 kernels, the ‘insmod’ command can be used if the full path to the driver
module is specified. For example:
22
Chapter 3: Installation
insmod /lib/modules/[KERNEL_VERSION]/kernel/drivers/
net/ethernet/intel/i40e.[k]o
In addition, when using 2.6-based kernels, make sure that older i40e drivers
are removed from the kernel before loading the new module. To do this, use:
rmmod i40e; modprobe i40e
8. Assign an IP address to the interface by entering the following command
where "x" at the end of "ethx" is the interface number:
ifconfig ethx <IP_address> netmask <netmask>
9. To verify that the interface is working properly use the following command
where "<IP_address>" is the IP address of the machine on the same subnet as the interface that is being tested:
ping <IP_address>
