Subject: RE: Read smbios2 file failed
Date: Wed, 15 Sep 2021 13:18:57 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <DF4PR8401MB06341BDD6521896375C0CF498FDB9@DF4PR8401MB0634.NAMPRD84.PROD.OUTLOOK.COM> (raw)

We recently did the same thing and got it working.  All you have to do is take the RAW smbios records blob in binary form (delivered as noted below in whatever way you choose) and prepend a specific header:  https://github.com/openbmc/smbios-mdr/blob/33c948a473bd273fea0cff82d4c99b70b7784be6/include/smbios_mdrv2.hpp#L114

It is a little bit fragile as it introduces a dependency on the file download logic to write a non-standard header defined in another service that could potentially change.
