Interface names can change if network drivers are updated, or if the port mode is changed. To determine the interface name that is currently in use for the X3522 interface:

  1. List all interfaces in the server:
    # ip link
  2. Search the output for the X3522 interface. It can be recognized by the MAC address that you read from the QR code (see Get Details of the Card). For example:
    3: enp1s0f2: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq portid 020000000000 state UP mode DEFAULT qlen 1000
        link/ether 00:0A:35:0C:14:8E brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    • the line starting link/ether 00:0A:35:0C:14:8E identifies that this is the X3522 interface
    • the interface name is enp1s0f2.

If this does not work, see Troubleshooting the Network Driver Load for help.
