After upgrading the firmware version for X710 from 20.0.17 to 20.5.13 through OMIVV, now it lets me downgrade it to 20.0.17 again, is it a bug?

Hi, thanks for choosing Dell. What is the current OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter (OMIVV) version you're on? Have you tried updating the catalog?
OMIVV version is 5.4 and the catalog version is the latest one (21.10.15). I do not encounter the same issue using the catalog (21.09.17) released in last month. A new Intel X710 NIC driver version (Intel NIC Family Version 20.5.0 Firmware for X710, XXV710, and XL710 adapters) added in the latest catalog (21.10.15) which I believe it causes this issue.
I think I find the reason. The subDeviceID = "0000" is missing under "Intel NIC Family Version 20.5.0" but exists under "Intel NIC Family Version 20.0.0" and that's why it always let me downgrade the version from 20.5 to 20.0 for one of my Intel X710 NIC card. Please see the picture below for details (Catalog version 21.10.29). Please fix it, thanks~
