I’m installing OFED driver for connect-x4 NIC on Arm server. Everything works okay except it complains “Error: mlnx-fw-updater deb doesn’t exist! Cannot perform firmware update!”.
Looks firmware update tool is missing for Arm.
How can I upgrade firmware on Arm server? Thanks.

Under OS dist → Linux → RPM/Debian based → ARM64 version

I find another utility mlxup (http://www.mellanox.com/page/mlxup_firmware_tool) which is very convenient for firmware update. It also supports Arm. The only catch is I have to append .gz to downloaded file and unzip it manually.
Yes this another recommended way upgrade the firmware.
glad to hear that it is working.
