Thank you for the update. Just to double check if you are referring using Dell OEM X710? The firmware version you have is different. Have you tried contacting Dell* to check with them as well?
Please feel free to provide me more information about your setup and NIC information.
What is the serial number of your X710, please look for the serial# on the physical NIC with the format of 16 alphanumeric + 6 alphanumeric + 6 digits -3 digits
Looking forward to your reply.
I am sorry, but I can not find the serial-number in any interface I have access to (ESXi, DRAC)
I have no access to the hardware at the moment and can not take a physical look on the NIC.
This is all information I can get out about the NIC:

Thank you for the information. This is an OEM NIC and the firmware version is very different, I would recommend you to contact Dell* for customized driver which might be of help.
