This package contains all files required to update the non-volatile memory (NVM) on the Intel® Ethernet Adapters in your system. It contains the NVM update utility, configuration file, updated NVM binaries, and required driver files.
NVM update to version 6.80 with release 23.4 includes Recovery Mode.
Note: NVM 6.01 can be used with 23.4 SW Release.
Installation uses normal upgrade installation procedures.
- Normal NVM Upgrade (Intel® Ethernet NVM Update Tool) can be used to enable the new features.
- Reboot required. A/C power cycle is not required when updating from the previously released version. Intel recommends following the instructions provided with the NVM Update tool.
- NVM update to version x.x enables anti-rollback mode. After upgrading, downgrade to previous NVM versions isn't possible.
Note: The design of Recovery Mode precludes rollback to prior versions of the NVM. This is because the addition of the Recovery Mode capability changed the definition of some regions of the NVM to be write-protected. Rollback to a prior version requires access to these write-protected regions, and therefore the rollback would fail.
- Recovery Mode has no impact to normal operation.
- To fully support Recovery Mode, the updated Ethernet NVM, software driver, and software tool in Release 23.4 or later must all be used.
