I would like to program the MAC Address into the i210 flash device using eepromaccesstool on a ARM based system. Can I please get command this accomplish this? Note this is for ARM based system, so lanconf and eeupdate will not work.
According to the documentation to program the i210 external flash the command is:
"sudo ./eepromARMtool -write -NIC=X -f=<filename>"
There is really no difference on the command to program iNVM or flash, the eepromARMtool will determine which type of memory to program, accordingo to the format of the Input File.
I recommend that you take a look at document RDC 523420.
The EepromAccessTool (EepromArmTool was the name of a previous version of the tool), is designed to program a blank flash or iNVM memory with all the configuration registers, I am not aware of any specific command to program only the MAC address, however I will double check with the engineering team.
I confirmed with the engineers that there is no specific command to only program the MAC address.
As a suggested workaround you could create a script, to generate an empty image that just contains the MAC address, and then you can provide that empty image as input file ot the EepromAccessTool.
You can take a look to at the I210 Dashboard Section 6.0 and the EepromAccessTool Userg Guide section 5.0 for more information.
