PVE 5.3.1 does not recognize all Ethernet ports

I installed PVE 5.3.1 on the SuperMicro server (SYS-2029TP-HC0R). At BIOS leveI I see all etherneth cards (I have two 1Gbps 4-port card and one 10Gbps 2-port card), but at command line level (command: ip addr) I see only six 1G ports.

Any suggestions?

Best regards

Hi Luigi,
maybe you can check if the cards are detected using the output of `dmesg`?
Hi Chris,
now I do not have access to the server but this morning I noticed that when I ran the command "ip addr", I saw that on the ethernet cards some LED connections were ON and others were OFF. Instead, when I checked the BIOS level, all the LED connections were ON.

Best regards, Luigi
