I've two SNS-3515-k9 with ISE 2.4 preinstalled. I'm going to delivery to customer's network and I would update to the last version CIMC and BIOS as well.
I've just saw that new firmwares are released couple a day ago with upgrade guide too. By the way in that guide there's no mention about my CIMC installed version.
Here the details:
BIOS (Version: C220M126.96.36.199a.0.0321172055)
CIMC (Version: 3.0(3S2))
ISE: 188.8.131.527 patch 4
Thanks a lot!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, i’ve saw it a couple of weeks ago, I’ve posted now.
However, this not clarify what I’m supposed to do.
I’d like to update to last stable version now, on my lab before to deploy on customer’s network.
I've successfully upgraded CIMC and BIOS firmware on my two ISE nodes, I'm very thankful to TAC engineer who helped me out.
I've two SNS-3515-k9 with ISE 2.4 nodes, with CIMC version 3.0.3(S2) installed.
In order to upgrade to 3.0.4j CIMC, I had to downgrade my version to 2.0.9c because 3.0.3(S2) doesn't support uploading file > 40 MB.
Firstly I've upgraded my secondary node:
step 1) Gracefully shutdown ISE node
In ISE CLI just launch:
application stop ise
step 2) from 3.0.3(S2) to 2.0.9c
Upload first BMC then BIOS firmware and after doing that activate new BMC firmware. Note CIMC will be unreachable for a few minutes.
Important: my version (3.0.3(S2)) was affected by this bug CSCvd26329: after the downgrade password was reset to default. (admin - password)
Same as step 2 but I had to active BIOS firmware as well. First, activate BMC, after that shutdown host from CIMC menu, then activate new BIOS. You might have to refresh your internet browser before you can power on host again.
Please note powering on the host by CIMC command will power on ISE node as well, so open a KVM console to check when ISE will be on (CLI: show application status ise) and then shutdown again.
step 4) from 3.0.3f to 3.0.4j
same as step 3.
Follow this steps to upgrade primary node CIMC as well.
Hope this could help someone.
