This document describes the installation, use, and maintenance of the PXE boot solution designed for these adapters. The Chelsio solution is a combination of hardware and software. There is Chelsio S320E-CXA Adapter NIC a utility that can be used in the installation and maintenance of the option ROM client and related components.


The client is used to connect to the PXE server where the remote storage resides which contains the booting OS. In most cases this can be accomplished using PXE.

This document briefly describes this topic for both Windows and Linux. This user guide however is limited to instructions for use with Windows and Linux.

Please refer to the documentation that is available for these other operating systems for guidance and instructions. A vast majority of systems shipped today are compliant with these. In it are the following: Release Version Chelsio Communications, Inc. These binaries Chelsio S320E-CXA Adapter NIC shipped pre-installed on the adapter but in case either need an upgrade this chapter describes the procedure. Please read both sections about choosing the correct binaries for flashing.

From DOS This list will expand for other operating systems as more drivers become available that incorporate flash utilities. The flash tools for each of the above three are described in detail further below. Remember that for a particular adapter, it may not be necessary at all to flash either of the Chelsio S320E-CXA Adapter NIC binaries option ROM or firmware. The sections below on choosing the correct versions will help determine if it s needed and if so, which version to use.

The following table describes the file to be used during the flash process: Simply re-flash the Chelsio S320E-CXA Adapter NIC with the correct file. Fortunately, for all device drivers that Chelsio supports there is a mechanism in place that automatically updates the firmware on the adapter if it doesn t match the required version needed by the driver. However, when PXE network booting is used there can be an issue for Linux users.

There is a straight forward solution for this class of users. For Linux Chelsio S320E-CXA Adapter NIC, the automatic mechanism that updates the firmware on the adapter from the device driver works well when booting from a local drive but not when PXE network booting. To do that one of the flash utility can be used to update the firmware. Once updated, the firmware on the adapter does not need to change. Then later if Linux is PXE network booted and the firmware required is mismatched, the boot will not succeed.

In that case the firmware of the adapter will have to be updated again through one of the flash utilities. Below are a set of tables that relates the firmware version requirement for each of the 21 supported Linux device Chelsio S320E-CXA Adapter NIC. There are 8 different versions of firmware that cover these.
