If the documentation for that product is correct, it only updates the FLASH NVM for network boots which we aren't using at all.
The Errata # 30 indicates there is a version 1.9 of the EEPROM firmware that has a 50/50 chance of fixing the problem we are seeing. I am using FLASH and EEPROM in the context of the chip documentation, not loosely.
if you go to downloadcenter.intel.com, then enter 82576. you'll get a result says the 'ibabuild' file is a firmware, see http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&keyword=%2282576%22 this. updating the boot agent also updates the eeprom.
hope this is helpful.
I already downloaded that and it wasn't what I was looking for; however, I was provided with the correct files from other official channels and no longer need help here.
Hi - bumping this post up. I have two NICs with 82576, and one one HW time-stamps are not working. I suspect it is the old firmware - where can I get an image to flash it ?
