A few days ago there was an unexpected reboot of the Dell R540 server, but no error was recorded in the SYSLOG, and after contacting Dell support, it was informed that the reboot was caused by an event related to the Intel X710-T network interface of a possible driver error. Someone with a similar situation? Thanks.

Hi guys, analyzing the dmesg I noticed the driver update request. Could this pending be causing the unexpected reboot? Could anyone help how to perform this update? Or would it be better to wait for some update from proxmox? Thanks.

You can compile latest intel (i40e) drivers easily under proxmox, i done it without problem for x710-da2, i got same message before drivers update. Same thing for iavf drivers. Note you could need to upgrade to latest nvm firmware (8.40 currently) too.

Is there any way to get the actual Intel driver version Proxmox uses?

For all of my cards I only get the Proxmox version...

Code:
# ethtool -i enp2s0f0
driver: ixgbe
version: 5.11.22-4-pve
firmware-version: 0x800006da, 1.1824.0
