How to get mac address from zc702 board

My zc702 board has label saying its mac address. Where is the mac stored? How to get the mac in u-boot? Can somebody point me some direction? Or does Xilinx has a plan to read the mac address in u-boot? (Currently it's hard coded in u-boot.)

 

Thanks.

Re: How to get mac address from zc702 board

Hi John,

 

    Thanks for your reply. Does that mean:

 

    1. Currently the mac address is not stored in anywhere on the board initially, it's only printed on the label?

 

    2. I need to wait for Xilix to update zynq u-boot to include the features similar to what petalogix provides?

 

    Thanks.

Yes 1 and 2 are true.  We are going to turn on the environment in u-boot and then the mac address can be saved in QSPI flash by the user.

 

Thanks

John

Any idea when u-boot will be updated to saveenv to QSPI?
