An Intel® ME configuration file parsing error is reported when using the Intel® OFU utility to update the SFUP on Linux* OS with a kernel setting of iomem=strict.
The error message is displayed to the console when running the syscfg -i command on Linux OS with a kernel setting of iomem=strict.
On Linux OS kernel 4.5 and above, the memory mapped IO (MMIO) access is set to strict mode (iomem=strict) by default, preventing access to the MMIO memory of the device from a utility, such as Intel® OFU or Syscfg utility.
Refer to the PDF for more details on root cause and workaround.
Invocation of the ipmitool from the remote system requires extra parameters to connect to Intel® Server Systems that have BMC firmware v1.90 or later installed.
