   Boot Code         212.0.162.0
   MBA Code          212.0.168.0
   UEFI Code         212.0.162.0

   RDMA FW           212.0.121.0
   
   Problems Fixed:

       - Fixed a condition where legacy PXE might not work when a VLAN is set
       - Fixed a condition where after enabling NPAR and saving settings, on 
         the next boot NPAR is not enabled on all ports
       - Fixed an issue with 7ZT7A00496 and 7ZT7A00505 where ports may disappear 
         from the F1 setup -> System Settings -> Network menu, across reboots
       - Fixed a possible hang condition while downloading a kernel image after 
         loading a legacy iPXE bootloader
       - Fixed an erroneous link speed LED display after warm reboot on 
         10GBASE-T adapters
       - Removed a few un-needed MBA options from F1 setup menu. Legacy 
         settings are configured via F1 setup, there is no legacy ROM menu
       - Fixed an issue where 7ZT7A00505 shows 8 logical ports in the OS instead
         of 16 when NPAR is enabled. Note the system can also affect the number 
         of ports displayed
       - Restored the default setting for both Operational Link Speed and 
         Firmware Link Speed for 7ZT7A00505 to AutoNeg. A prior level mistakenly
         set the default to 25Gbs 
       - There is an error when edit info on deploy pattern with  
         Broadcom NX-E PCIe 10Gb 2-Port Base-T Ethernet Adapter
       - Fixed the Virtual MAC address setting for each NPAR partition,
         the OneCli path to the setting was not unique

   NCSI Code         212.0.109.0
   RDMA FW           212.0.106.0
   
   Problems Fixed:
       - Fixed messages such as 'CQ (tx) cid 0017' output to serial 
         during legacy PXE boot
       - Fixed possible hang condition during POST with densly populated 
         systems, when the UEFI driver loads for an adapter that has not 
         been assigned PCI resources
       - Fixed several configuration settings that appear to have no default 
         value when queried by tools such as OneCli            
       - Fixed XCC inventory display for single-port adapter to show 16 logical
         ports (instead of 8) when 'Multi-Function Mode' is set to 'NPAR 1.0'
       - Fixed F1 setup setting 'Number of VFs Per PF' unable to be set via 
         OneCli / LXCA when 'Multi-Function Mode' is set to 'SF' and 'SRIOV' is
         set to 'Enabled' in 'Device Configuration Menu'

         which could cause a system hang when attempting legacy boot
       - Fixed XCC inventory display of maximum speed 10GB for 25GB adapter
       - Added better messaging for when an invalid IP address is entered in 
         F1 setup 'iSCSI Initiator Parameters' menu
