    intel QV driver: eeupdate or lanconf is not able connect to the QV driver

    kongkon

      The eeupdate and the lanconf tool is not working. These tools need the IQV driver. However once I load the latest driver, these tools errors out with the following messages:

      Connection to QV driver failed - please reinstall it!

       

      This output is with the older iqv driver version: 1.1.4.17

      [root@xrsdev29 ~]# ./lanconf64e /VERSION

      Connection to QV driver failed - please reinstall it!

       

       

      Using: Intel (R) PRO Network Connections SDK v2.28.29

      LANConf v1.28.29.03

      Now, if I run the older tool, it does not complain. However, in both these cases the lanconf tool should have complained, as the iqv driver is not loaded in either of these cases.

      root@xrsdev29 ~]# ./STX_3PF_UTIL_106/util/intel/lanconf /VERSION

      [root@xrsdev29 ~]# lsmod |grep iqv

      [root@xrsdev29 ~]#

       

      After I load the iqv driver (latest):

       

      [root@xrsdev29 ~]# modprobe iqv

       

      [root@xrsdev29 ~]# modinfo iqv

      [root@xrsdev29 ~]# ./STX_3PF_UTIL_106/util/intel/lanconf /VERSION  <----- older lanconf tool, so expected output.

       

      Driver version do not match, please reinstall driver

      [root@xrsdev29 ~]# ./lanconf64e /VERSION                            <------- New lanconf tool came with iqv driver. It still complains after loading the iqv driver

      So, why the latest IQV driver does not work with the latest eeupdate and lanconf tools, whereas older driver with older tools works!

       

      Thanks
