SNS-3495 BIOS upgrade before ISE upgrade

hi,

Our customer is running ISE 1.3 on the 3495 appliances and are upgrading their environment to ISE 2.2.

Is it mandatory to upgrade the BIOS/CIMC of the appliances before doing the upgrade of ISE?

If so, what version of BIOS would be recommended?

Many thanks

Gert

Re: SNS-3495 BIOS upgrade before ISE upgrade

Yes, CIMC/BIOS needs updated. See CSCuz09175.

Below from our engineering teams on SNS-3415/-3495 appliances,

As there is no dependency exists between CIMC/BIOS firmware and ISE, they can upgrade the CIMC/BIOS or ISE from current version.

Recommended to upgrade firmware CIMC to 2.0(9C), then upgrade it into 3.0.
