Is CIMC interface on FMC 4000 hardware appliances supported?

We have Cisco Firepower Management Center 4000 hardware appliances.

They are running the current Cisco recommended version of Firepower software i.e. 6.4.0.9

These FMC 4000 hardware appliances are based on Cisco UCS C220 M3 rack servers, and each contain a CIMC interface.

The CIMC interface on our FMC 4000 appliances is currently running CIMC firmware 2.0(1b) released in July 2014.

The current Cisco recommended version of CIMC firmware on Cisco UCS C220 M3 rack servers is 3.0(4r) released in August 2020.

I have discovered Cisco bug CSCvm84345 (as shown in attached screenshot) which states that "CIMC use and out-of-band firmware upgrades not officially supported on hardware FMCs".

 

I am looking for confirmation from Cisco on the following questions:

  • Question 1: Is the CIMC interface on FMC 4000 hardware appliances supported?
  • Question 2: Is updating the firmware of CIMC interface on FMC 4000 hardware appliances supported?
  • Question 3: If updating the firmware of CIMC interface on FMC 4000 hardware appliances IS supported, what is the method for updating the CIMC firmware?
