Overcome SFI/SFP+ intel restriction for deploying RHOSP 10

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • I don't see the SFI/SFP+ interfaces on my RHEL OS.
  • My SFI/SFP+ is not in the whitelist of supported devices in the ixgbe driver, how to enable Director to make use of it assuming I'm able to make them work with RHEL 7.5 ?
  • I want to deploy RHOSP on nodes using unsupported SFI/SFP+ receiver on intel ixgbe cards.


  • Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10.
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
