I need to upgrade NIC drives and firmware for my Dell R610.

[root@vps ~]# lspci | egrep -i --color 'network|ethernet'

Not sure how to do it as I tried the latest available driver based off Dell service tag, from this link:

QLogic FastLinQ Network Adapter Device Firmware.
Version: 08.07.26 ,A00-00

wget..
chmod +x file name
./filename

Code: Select all

[root@vps ~]# ./Network_Firmware_82J79_LN_08.07.26_A00-00.BIN
An Inventory Collector is running. Wait until it is completed before proceeding with update.

And did you wait for the inventory collector to finish?
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
