    Intel X710 DA2 NVM - Update not available

    smh1

      When starting on both FreeBSD and Linux the latest driver complains that the NVM should be updated.

       

      As there's no FreeBSD NVM update utility available I got the machine temporarily booted into Linux however the updater reports:

      "Update not available"

       

      The log from an inventory run identifies the card as a dual port X710:

      [02:00:00]: Intel(R) Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X710

            LAN MAC: 3CFDFE007460

            Alt MAC: 000000000000

                Type: IMAGE_SHARED_40G, Version: 1.0.7, Checksum: Not Relevant

       

      Looking in nvmupdate.cfg the device matches the XL710 but there's no match for EEPID which I believe corresponds to the EEPROM: EtrackID of 80001867.

       

      So the question is where do I get the right NVM update from?

       

      ./nvmupdate64e -l update.log
