Trying to understand how Cisco firmware versions work
I have a customer with a Cisco UCSM:
2x Fibre Interconnects
6x B-series blade servers
The customer currently has firmware 3.2(3p) on their system and would like to upgrade to V4.1 (N-1) as they are upgrading their vSphere environment to 6.7u3.
From what I can see on the Cisco Downloads site, the following software is available (N-1):
Infrastructure firmware 4.1(3f)
Blades firmware 4.1(3f)
Blades ESXi drivers 4.1(3n)
Considering I will be upgrading the Infrastructure & Blade firmware to 4.1(3f), which ESXi drivers should I use for the ESXi hosts? Is the minimum driver I can use 4.1(3f) and the latest 4.1(3n) OK to use and how do I choose which one without losing compatibility between the drivers and the firmware?
