I210/I225 eeupdate64e to blink port LED, no GUI

Dear Intel team,

Before programming ports MAC for the first time, I need to use eeupdate64e tooling to make these LEDs blink to ensure that the NIC number refers to the physical port with the blinking LED.
I am using the version for Linux, and I can perform this by calling the GUI option and pressing 'b' after selecting the desired port. But I need to use it by calling by shell command line.
Could you let me know if there is any option as "./eeupdate64e /NIC=1 --blink"?

 

Rgds,

Hello, @Heitor:

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

 

Based on the provided information, we want to address the following questions to be on the same page with you:

 

Is your problem related to adding cards or NIC cards like the one described on the following website?

In case your answer is affirmative, please let us know the manufacturers and part numbers of the cards related to your request. 

 

Or, is your problem related to a board design made by you using the Intel® Ethernet Controller I210 or Intel® Ethernet Controller I225?

Where do you acquire the Intel® Ethernet Controllers for the affected designs?

 

We are waiting for your clarification.

Hi @CarlosAM_INTEL ,

 

          The problem is related to :

           https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/68668/intel-ethernet-server-adapter-i210t1.html

           https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/211808/intel-ethernet-network-adapter-i225t1.html           

 

          I have these Ethernet ports. Since I need to program their MAC's and that should depend on their physical location , I want to make a specific port blink, so you can know where your Ethernet port physically is on them machine before programing the first MAC address. 

          Using the software ./eeupdate64e /GUI and selecting the port and pressing 'B' is possible, but I need to do it through a system call. Is that possible?

 

Regards,

Heitor.

HI @CarlosAM_INTEL ,

 

         I have added I226 by mistake and it is now removed.
