Detailed Description

Change Notice, September 17, 2020:

NVM Update Package 2.02 has been updated. If you currently have the 2.02 update package installed, and you are re-running this update package as a result of this Change Notice: While performing an upgrade or a downgrade, the displayed firmware version (visible in the NVM upgrade/downgrade process display screen) will remain unchanged. The version reported will be 2.00 (C0) or 2.02 (B0). The upgrade or downgrade is working but the change won’t be visible from the displayed version number.

What was updated:

One NVM image was replaced in the NVM Update Package 2.02 to enable future downgrades to this package for affected products. Without this change, future downgrades to this package would not have worked on affected products.

The NVM image was corrected for OEM designs using 8x10G SFP mode using ETrack ID 0x80003E45 with the following silicon products:

  • Intel® Ethernet Controller E810-CAM2, MM# 999W9F, Tray
  • Intel® Ethernet Controller E810-CAM2, MM# 999W9G, Tape and Reel

Other information:
