sources EEpromAccessTool for XL710 needed (for ARM64)

Hello,

I already have an old version (0.7.3) of that tool, but it doesn't support the XL710. When I got the sources it was mentioned that the support for XL710 (to program the empty Flash) will be added later.

So I hacked the sources and put the values for vendor and device ID of XL710 for X550 case, just to try. Of course, SW crashed. Here's the output:

Could you provide me the sources which support the XL710?

Best regards

Hello, @cebula:

Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

In order to give you the information that may help you, could you please clarify if the affected device is listed on the following website?

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/series/96044/intel-ethernet-server-adapter-xl71...

We are waiting for your clarification.

Best regards,

No, it is custom board with Freescale's LS2048 processor (Arm64 architecture). We need sources to crosss-compile for ARM.

Re: sources EEpromAccessTool for XL710 needed (for ARM64)

Hello, @cebula:

Thanks for your reply.

We suggest using the Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) Update Utility for Intel(R) Ethernet Network Adapter 700 Series instead of the EEprom Access Tool that you have listed on your first communication. This utility can be found in the following website:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24769

Please let us know if you have any updates or consultations?

Best regards,

@Mæcenas_INTEL.

Re: sources EEpromAccessTool for XL710 needed (for ARM64)

Hi,

unfortunately this utility is not suitable for me, because it is for x86-64 and will not run on our CPU (ARM64):

$ file nvmupdate64e
nvmupdate64e: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2, for GNU/Linux 2.6.18, BuildID[sha1]=28661d24ffc08d4c68ee1e81cfa78d77874fb720, stripped

I need solution where I have sources to compile in our environment for ARM64. I have some old sources, but they do not support XL710.

Best Regards

cebula

Re: sources EEpromAccessTool for XL710 needed (for ARM64)

Hello, @cebula:

Thanks for your clarification.

The latest version of the EEprom Access Tool [EAT] (0.7.9 at this moment) may help you. It can be found when you are logged into your Resource & Design Center (RDC) privileged account at the following website:

http://www.intel.com/cd/edesign/library/asmo-na/eng/572162.htm

The RDC Account Support form is the channel to process your account update request or any inconveniences with the provided website. It can be found at:

Re: sources EEpromAccessTool for XL710 needed (for ARM64)

Hello, Mæcenas

I have used the Resource & Design Center (RDC) privileged account and I've downloaded the sources, the latest version 0.7.9. They are not much different from my 0.7.3 version. I still can't find the XL710 support.

Does this mean that we cannot get the support for NVM update for XL710 for ARM64 from Intel?

Best Regards

cebula
