Hi,
I am using  XL710 40GbE Controller with two ports.
The way I am using them is one port is configured to vfio-pci for using
with dpdk in user space and the other is left to the kernel driver and for
a seperate application that does not use DPDK.
As soon as DPDK initialize and start the port, the other port
become unusable.

Is there any setting/configuration that I am missing  ?

Thanks,
Avner

See https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/networking/i40e.rst, in particular,
read the paragraph on "Unexpected Issues when the device driver and DPDK share a device".

Thanks Lee. I already read it and tried the potential remedy that is
suggested i.e. enabling the multi driver support , but it didn't solved the
problem.
Are there more setting documented anywhere ?

Did you try using igb_uio driver from DPDK as the kernel module to see if
that works? The IOMMU grouping of the ports may be causing issues.
