The newer X540 series adapters will require you to have drivers from Intel 
installed. If you plan on using the SR-IOV features, this is a secondary set of 
drivers as well.

Pretty sure the link (which I harvested from my history) is as follows:

That's the source build drivers, pretty sure there might be RPM package based 
drivers as well but I'm on Debian so source was required. Install is easy, just 
have your kernel headers installed and you're good to go.

Subject: [Xen-API] help install New Nic xcp 1.1

Hello all:

We have a xcp 1.1 server pool running in our development and production 
environments, I have upgraded the servers with a new NIC and I have been unable 
to active the kernel drivers or load the drivers as a module.  I am rather new 
to Xen and any help would be appreciated.

The new mic cards installed into our machines are Intel X540-T1 10gb PCI-e 
cards and they should use the ixgbe drivers located in the xen installation on 
both machines however I can't get them to work.
