Identifying the Adapter

To find if one or more Pensando PCI Ethernet devices are installed on the host, check for the PCI devices:

$ lspci -d 1dd8:
b5:00.0 Ethernet controller: Device 1dd8:1002
b6:00.0 Ethernet controller: Device 1dd8:1002

If such devices are listed as above, then the ionic.ko driver should find and configure them for use. There should be log entries in the kernel messages such as these:

$ dmesg | grep ionic
ionic Pensando Ethernet NIC Driver, ver 0.15.0-k
ionic 0000:b5:00.0 enp181s0: renamed from eth0
ionic 0000:b6:00.0 enp182s0: renamed from eth0
