    MCX354A-FCBT does not show "Port Protocol" tab in device manager after FW upgrade

    speedy

      After upgrading my MCX354A-FCB_A1 network adapters to FW 2.33.5100 the "Port Protocol" tab in the Windows 7 device manager is not available anymore

      (it was before), as shown in the ConnectX®-3 VPI Single and Dual QSFP+ Port Adapter Card User Manual Rev 2.4, page 59

       

      However, I may change the port type successfully using the CLI:

       

      # mlxconfig -d /dev/mst/mt4099_pciconf0 s LINK_TYPE_P1=<1|2|3> for P1, port type:  IB = 1, ETH = 2, Auto =3

      # mlxconfig -d /dev/mst/mt4099_pciconf0 s LINK_TYPE_P2=<1|2|3> for P2, port type:  IB = 1, ETH = 2, Auto =3

       

      REMARK:

      The documentation Mellanox Firmware Tools (MFT) User Manual Rev. 2.3,  § 2.1.1.1 on page 21, table 3, VPI settings is incorrect,

      VPI_SETTINGS_PORTx should appear in the description column, in the parameter column it should read: LINK_TYPE_Px

       

      It seems that the network adapters are not being recognized as VPI cards under Windows 7, x64 anymore ?

       

      How can I correct this ?
