Is Intel x520 10 Gigabit NIC compatible with ProLiant DL380 Gen9 server?

Hi.

I wonder if Intel x520 10 Gigabit NIC is compatible with ProLiant DL380 Gen9 server? I can't find any information/HCL. I have installed it and it is recognized correctly in server's BIOS, but firmware version information is empty, and server start fails with red screen showing CPU registers contents. I have tried ProLiant service pack and it installed NIC drivers, but firmware info is still empty, and start fails again.

If that configuration is supported where can I download drivers/firmware for that NIC model?

 

Thanks in advance

Thank You very much for reply,

but I mean exactly original Intel (not HPE branded) converged X520-SR2 dual port (82599 chipset) SFP+ NIC. Intel part number G18786-004. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/network-io/ethernet/10-25-40-gigabit-adapters/x520-sr2-10gbe.html

On Dell they work just fine. On HP they say: buy HPE NIC. Next time I'll buy Dell server.
