Hi Francis11China,

 

 

Initial checking indicates the firmware of 82580 is not available, since this is an Ethernet Controller integrated to the system, please try to check with your system manufacturer.

 

 

On my end, I'll try to check further and post the update in this thread.

 

 

 

regards,

hi,

we got answer from HP.com, please help to verify it HP said the firmware appear to be "locked" by Intel??

Information

End-user unable to find the firmware for HP NC365T PCI Express Quad Port Gigabit Server Adapter installed in HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 and HP ProLiant ML350 Gen8 Servers.

  • Checked the latest SPP (SPP2012.10.0) no information about the firmware.
  • Checked the HP NC365T 4-port Adapter download page No information on firmware.
  • Checked HP ProLiant DL 380p G8 Server download and driver page no information on the firmware.
Details

Intel cards have different firmware revision's shipped from factory itself and HP does not have a public download for this firmware.

There may be different versions of the embedded Intel firmware/EEPROM images for the same NC365T card.

The firmware versions appear to be "locked" to the PCA# type in the NC365T and its date of manufacture.

Hi FrancisChina,

 

 

I'd suggest to contact HP support. They might be able to assist you by checking internal channels for the firmware file or provide other options to meet your needs.

hi

could you answer it directly?

The firmware versions appear to be "locked" to the PCA# type in the NC365T and its date of manufacture. yes or no?

HP had answer before:

Intel cards have different firmware revision's shipped from factory itself and HP does not have a public download for this firmware.

Hi Francis11China,

 

 

We're not certain what HP meant by "locked". If they mean firmware shipped with the HP NC365T does not change, then most probably, the answer is "yes" because we don't have the firmware file available.

 

 

You've mentioned "bonding" in your initial post, please share additional details in case you encountered issue with your "bonding" configuration.

 

 

 

regards,
