    ConnectX-4 25Gbps link not detected with Arista 7150 switch




      I am noticing that when my connectx-4 25Gbps card is connected to the Arista 7150 switch (10Gbps) ports, the link is not getting detected.  


      Based on the documents I read, my understanding is that the auto-negotiate should successfully negotiate the link to 10Gbps. 


      I also tried to disable auto negotiate and set the port speed to 10Gbps and still it is not working.


      The details:
