X710-4 NVM Tool Reports "Update not found"

Hi, I have several X710-DA4 that I purchased at different times, and some of them I was able to grab the latest firmware (5.05) and upgrade them. nvmupdate64e and ethool show this on the good ones:

Hi cburdick,

 

 

Thanks for sharing the lspci output, I was looking for the following items ([SN], [V1]) to determine if your X710 is retail or OEM.

 

 

You can try to load version 4.42 then version 5.05.

 

 

Download link to version 4.42

Hi Cburdick,

 

 

Unfortunately we are not able to locate the PBA # H34308-003 in our part number website below:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products/000005612.html

 

 

Can you run the lspci command to provide the vendor ID and Dev ID for us to double check? You may click on the arrow beside "Linux" to expand the entry to see the sample command and output detail at website above.

 

 

Type lspci -nn | grep -i 'Ethernet Controller' at a command prompt.

 

 

 

Looking forward to your reply. Thank you.

 

 

Regards,

 

sharon

Hi Cburdick,

 

 

Thank you for the information and taking time to resend the information. Based on the output, there is no device and vendor ID information. Just to double check if this network adapter came with the server you bought? I understand you bought several units of this model in separate time, however one of these network adapter came along with the server system? What is the brand and model of your server system?

 

 

Thanks,

 

sharon

Hi Cburdick,

 

 

Here is a suggestion you can try. Please run the SSU tool to check for the Etrack ID then follow the steps below. You can download the SSU tool here at

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/91600/Intel-System-Support-Utility

 

 

1. Unpack the XL710_NVMUpdatePackage_v5_05 for whatever version you are using (Just extract the contents to a folder)

 

 

2. Open the extracted folder and go to XL710 | Linux_x64 and locate "nvmupdate.cfg"

 

 

3. Open the "nvmupdate.cfg" with a text editor

 

 

4. Search for the following full entry: (search for EEPID: 800024C6 to make it easier to find)

 

 

BEGIN DEVICE

 

DEVICENAME: XL710

 

VENDOR: 8086

 

DEVICE: 1572

 

NVM IMAGE: X710DA2_5p04_CFGID7p2_OEMGEN.bin

 

SKIP OROM: TRUE

 

EEPID: 800024C6

 

REPLACES: 8000191B 80001920 80001DC0 80001F54 80001FA4 80002282

 

EEPROM MAP: PF_Alloc_WOL_DIS.txt

 

RESET TYPE: REBOOT

 

END DEVICE

 

 

5. On the line that says "REPLACES:" add your network adapter's ETrackID at the end of the listed ETrack IDs

 

 

6. Save the file.

 

 

Please do let me know the result. Thank you for your time on this matter.

 

 

regards,

 

sharon

Hi Sharon, it doesn't look like SSU is supported on Ubuntu 14.04:

~$ sudo ./ssu.sh

This product is not supported on this operating system.

Would you like to try to scan? (y/n)

y

It hangs here and doesn't move after that.

Hi Cburdick,

 

 

For the Etrack ID, please refer to page 4 of the userguide below, you may run the ethtool command to generate the output
