5. Retraining the PCIe slot link

The Board Management software offers you to retrain the adapter card slot link to a faster speed or wider width without bringing down the link. This may be useful for debugging if the link negotiation for some reason did not reach maximum capabilities.

To retrain the slot link to maximum capabilities, use the dis_tool utility and the command 'retrain-slot'.
