Need quick reply 4.2(1)SP1(5.1) on Nexus 1010?


We have most likely run into CSCtz74514 in 4.2(1)SP1(3) in a HA Nexus 1010 setup and need to upgrade. In the downloads I can find 4.1(1)SP1(5.1) for Nexus 1010. I have read through the release notes for 4.2(1)SP1(5.1). The only VSAs talked about are Nexus 1110-S and 1110-X

Is 4.2(1)SP1(5.1) really supported on a classic Nexus 1010 with 16GB ram or should we go for 4.2(1)SP1(4a)?

Classis Nexus 1010 & 1010-X models are both supported.


Thanks a lot Mathew! Would be nice if someone could update the install and upgrade guides so it's clear 1010 and 1010-X are supported as well as the 1110-S and 1110-X.
