Recovery Mode in Intel® Ethernet Devices/Adapters Application Note
Networking Division (ND) - In Release 23.4, Intel has implemented a Recovery Mode capability that increases the resiliency of the Ethernet solution by enabling recovery of a corrupted or misconfigured NVM. Examples of events leading to this include partial or failed device firmware upgrade or downgrade attempts, or device driver installation errors. The enhancement adds a NIC Recovery capability (referred to as Recovery Mode) that is available in this release. Hibbert # 338102.
