Hello all,

Into a new server, i have 2 quad port ethernet. At boot time, the system
says to me:

netxen_nic 0000:0e:00.0: Incompatibility detected between driver and
firmware version on flash. This configuration is not recommended. Please
update the firmware on flash immediately

Problem solved upgrading firmware to version 4.0.585. I have used the HP
Service Pack (latest), the file name is the following:


After an automatic upgrade, the incompatibility message is begone.

[ 5.555209] netxen_nic 0000:0b:00.0: phanfw.bin: firmware is older
than flash
[ 10.134561] netxen_nic 0000:0b:00.0: loading firmware from flash
[ 14.923783] netxen_nic 0000:0b:00.0: using 64-bit dma mask
[ 14.924135] netxen_nic: Quad Gig LP Board S/N TI12BK1673 Chip rev 0x42
[ 14.924139] netxen_nic 0000:0b:00.0: firmware v4.0.585 [legacy]

Now i am more quiet about the correct working of that server.
