Alveo Data Center Accelerator Card - Card no longer appears in xbutil after loading custom design

Description

After loading a custom MCS file on the Alveo Data Center Card, the card no longer appears in the Xilinx Runtime xbutil list as available for flash.

Solution

Xilinx Runtime and the xbutil utility are only available to Alveo Data Center Accelerator Cards that are programmed with the Golden Image (from factory) or one of the Xilinx Deployment or Development Shells for the Alveo Data Center Accelerator Card.

xbutil will not recognize a card with a custom design loaded on the Alveo Data Center Accelerator Card.

If you wish to revert your card to the Golden Image and use the Xilinx Deployment or Development shells, please review the procedure in (Xilinx Answer 71757).
