    X710 - eeprom check failed - Tx/Rx traffic disabled


      Hello, I am using following Ethernet controller on one of our systems, and once in a while I run into following error after bootup, resulting in the port not sending/receiving packets. 


      2016-12-13T01:06:55.499000+00:00 kernel: i40e 0000:20:00.3: eeprom check failed (-2), Tx/Rx traffic disabled



      Following is the current version we use (which is quite old; we are in process of upgrading).  But does anyone know if this is a known issue and may be fixed in an upgraded driver and/or NVM?


      System# lspci -s 0000:20:00.3

      Thank you very much!
