"vpd r/w failed" Message from linux-kernel-bde

Follow

Issue

I see the following kernel message in system logs:

linux-kernel-bde 0000:01:00.0: vpd r/w failed. This is likely a firmware bug on this device. Contact the card vendor for a firmware update.

Environment

  • Cumulus Linux, all versions

Resolution

This message can be ignored.

Root Cause

This message is triggered by a harmless PCI non-conformity in the Broadcom ASIC. It can be produced by running lspci -vv on the command line. lspci is also run by cl-support, which is a common trigger for this message.
