Hotplugged Intel PCIe Cards Not Seen By the fwupdate Command (25830688)

After hotplugging an Intel-manufactured PCIe card into the server using the hotplug command, the fwupdate command cannot show detailed information about the card. After using the hotplug command, the fwupdate command can no longer access the PCI mappings on the device. An Intel-supplied utility fails to gather information about the hotplugged card, so it cannot pass this information to the fwupdate command.

The supported Intel-manufactured PCIe cards are as follows:

  • Sun Quad Port GbE PCIe 2.0 Low Profile Adapter, UTP

  • Oracle Quad Port 10GBase-T Adapter

  • Oracle Quad 10Gb or Dual 40Gb Ethernet Adapter

  • Oracle Flash Accelerator F640 PCIe Card: 6.4 TB, NVMe PCIe 3.0

Recovery: Reboot the server containing the Intel-manufactured PCIe card.
