Chapter I. Chelsio Unified Wire
1. Introduction
Thank you for choosing Chelsio T5/T4 Unified Wire adapters. These high speed, single chip,
single firmware cards provide enterprises and data centers with high performance solutions for
various Network and Storage related requirements.
The Terminator 5 (T5) is Chelsio’s next generation of highly integrated, hyper-virtualized
40/10GbE controllers. The T5 is built around a programmable protocol-processing engine, with
full offload of a complete Unified Wire solution comprising NIC, TOE, iWARP RDMA, ISCSI,
FCoE and NAT support. It scales true 40Gb line rate operation from a single TCP connection to
thousands of connections, and allows simultaneous low latency and high bandwidth operation
thanks to multiple physical channels through the ASIC.
The T4 adapters can fully offload TCP, UDP, iSCSI, iWARP and FCoE over a single Unified
Wire. The adapters also fully support SR-IOV, EVB/VNTag, DCB, Traffic Management and
Filtering.
Ideal for all data, storage and high performance clustering applications, the T5/T4 Adapters
enable a unified fabric over a single wire by simultaneously running all unmodified IP sockets,
Fibre Channel and InfiniBand applications over Ethernet at line rate.
Designed for deployment in virtualized data centers, cloud service installations and high
performance computing environments, Chelsio T5/T4 adapters bring a new level of performance
metrics and functional capabilities to the computer networking industry.
1.1. Features
Chelsio’s Unified Wire is an easy to use wizard that lets you install Chelsio’s NDIS function
driver with a few mouse clicks. The interactive installer has been developed for both novice and
advanced users.
Note
Chelsio T5/T4 NDIS function driver supports NIC and NDK functionalities.

Chapter I. Chelsio Unified Wire
1.2. Hardware Requirements
The Chelsio T5/T4 Unified Wire supports all x64 architectures supporting PCIE (x4, x8) slots.
AMD CPUs, 64-bit (x86_64/amd64)
Intel CPUs, 64-bit (x86_64)
Note
The Chelsio Unified Wire supports 3.3v PCI bus only. Running an adapter on a
PCI x4 slot is not recommended as performance will be significantly reduced by
the limitations of PCI.
1.3. Software Requirements
The Chelsio T5/T4 Unified Wire software has been developed to run on Windows based
platforms. To know more about the complete list of versions supported by each driver/software,
please refer to their respective sections.
1.4. Package Contents
Chelsio T5/T4 Unified Wire Software package comes with an interactive installer and support
documentation. The documentation, consisting of README, Release Notes and User’s Guide
(this document), can be found in the <system_drive>\ChelsioT4\docs\ directory after installing
Chelsio Unified Wire.

2. Hardware Installation
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Shutdown/power off your system.
Power off all remaining peripherals attached to your system.
Unpack the Chelsio adapter and place it on an anti-static surface.
Remove the system case cover according to the system manufacturer’s instructions.
Remove the PCI filler plate from the slot where you will install the Ethernet adapter.
For maximum performance, it is highly recommended to install the adapter into a PCIE x8
slot.
7. Holding the Chelsio adapter by the edges, align the edge connector with the PCI connector
on the motherboard. Apply even pressure on both edges until the card is firmly seated. It
may be necessary to remove the SFP (transceiver) modules prior to inserting the adapter.
8. Secure the Chelsio adapter with a screw, or other securing mechanism, as described by the
system manufacturer’s instructions. Replace the case cover.
9. After securing the card, ensure that the card is still fully seated in the PCIE x8 slot as
sometimes the process of securing the card causes the card to become unseated.
10. Connect a fiber cable, multi-mode for short range (SR) optics or single-mode for long range
(LR) optics, to the 40/10Gb Ethernet adapter or regular Ethernet cable for the 1Gb Ethernet
adapter.
11. Power on your system.
12. Verify if the adapter was installed successfully. To do so, open Device Manager in Control
Panel.
13. Under Other devices section, Chelsio adapter should be listed as Ethernet Controller. If
the adapter is not listed, right-click on the system name or click on the Actions menu and
select Scan for hardware changes
For Chelsio adapters, the physical functions are currently assigned as:
Physical functions 0 - 3: for the SR-IOV functions
Physical function 4: for all NIC functions of the card
Physical function 5: for iSCSI
Physical function 6: for FCoE
Physical function 7: Currently not assigned
14. Once the Unified Wire package is installed, open Device Manager again. Expand Network
adapters section and now Chelsio adapter should be listed.
Note
Network device names for Chelsio’s physical ports are assigned using the
following convention: the port farthest from the motherboard will appear as the
first ethernet network interface. However, for T580-LP-CR, T580-SO-CR and
T420-BT adapters, the association of physical ethernet ports and their
corresponding network device names is opposite. For these adapters, the port
nearest to the motherboard will appear as the first network interface.

2.3. Enabling SMB Direct
SMB Direct is installed and enabled by default on Windows Server 2012 R2 systems. RDMA
functionality on Chelsio adapters will be enabled after installing the driver from the package.
You can use the following PowerShell command Get-NetAdapterRdma to get a list of RDMA
capable interfaces in your system.
Note
At least one adapter should indicate “RDMA Capable” true to take advantage of
SMB RDMA capability.
The next step is to configure your network so that SMB server and client machines can
communicate with each other. Disable firewall for Chelsio adapters when using SMB.
2.4. Verifying RDMA
There are number of ways to verify if RDMA is working:
2.4.1. Verify active connections using PowerShell
Open PowerShell window and execute the command Get-SmbConnection
2.4.2. Use Event Viewer
You can use Event Viewer to view SMB connection events. To do this:
i.
ii.
iii.
Open Event Viewer
In the console tree, expand Event Viewer.
Navigate to Application and Service Logs-> Microsoft->Windows->SMBClient
->Operational
2.5. Troubleshooting
If RDMA is not working in your system, please check for the following:




Operating system version should be Windows Server 2012 R2.
Verify network interface configurations on both sides.
Please ensure that the interfaces are reachable using ping command.
In the Event Viewer (on the client side), please ensure that the traffic running is not over
TCP.

Chapter II. NDIS Function

Verify that SMB driver is loaded and working. Open PowerShell window and execute the
following command :
C:\Users\Administrator> driverquery.exe | findstr /I smb

Verify that Chelsio driver is loaded and working. Open PowerShell window and execute the
following command :
C:\Users\Administrator> driverquery.exe | findstr /I chel


Confirm that traffic is running over Chelsio adapter.
Look for potential errors in Event Log.
Note
Please configure the Microsoft firewall to allow traffic between the SMB clients
and server.
