XL710 NVM v6.01

Jump to solution

Just when I have a chance to flash a handful of XL710's from v5.02 to v5.05, I noticed today that v6.01 is available.

Q. I looked in the usual places but didn't file any release notes saying what was fixed. Are there any?

Q. Is NVM v6.01 compatible with any of the current VMware ESXi drivers on ESXi v6.0U2 or do we need to wait for a new driver?

Q. Any ETA on the VMware Driver to match v6.01?

It seems like the 6.01 firmware corresponds to the new 2.1.26 linux driver also released on 8/22/2017, which comes with some interesting release notes:

Nothing to be found on either the VMware HCL and/or download site, which is not very surprising at this point in time, though.

I will go ahead and ask that same question in my ongoing VMware support request (which has now - supposedly - reached engineering level). Maybe, just maybe, either Intel or VMware will start to communicate openly.

Thanks for checking. The release notes look promising to resolve my issues, but I won't know until the VMware driver is released. I'll keep checking their HCL often.

Is it possible to downgrade from 6.01 to 5.05?

Also, The NVM Downgrade package for 5.05 also has the wrong contents.
