PCIE 3.0 Infiniband Adapter on PCIE 4 riser

Hi all,

I'm trying to install a PCI-E 3.0 infiniband card, taken from an old DL360 server  (879482-B21, HPE InfiniBand FDR/Ethernet 40/50 Gb 2-port 547FLR-QSFP), on a HPE DL385 Gen10+ server, with a trislot PCI-E riser (HPE DL38X Gen10+ x8/x16/x8 Riser), but it is not recognized by the BIOS (the slot is listed as unpopulated in the BIOS, i tried rotating the slots with the other PCI-E card with no results, the only unpopulated slot is the infiniband one).

Is there some incompatibility issue that i'm not aware of? There is a workaround?

Thank you,

Marco

I don't see this adapter(879482-B21) in server quick specs so i doubt it supported.

However, you can try to update latest BIOS ROM version 2.44 and check,
