UCSM UPGRADE TO MOST STABLE FIRMWARE VERSION.

HI,

I have two FI 6140xp, 11 chassis, and i´m planning to upgrade its UCSM and firmware, from 1.4(L) through  2.0(5) but i need to know if this is the last stable version (2.0(5)),  or if exists another upper stable version.

Thanks,

Jesus,

The best option here is to check for resolved and open caveats for each for the releases you might be interested in and then contact your System Engineer for advice

Hi Jesus,

Here is a link to a list of all of the UCS release notes

Hi,

I wanted to add that the latest release will include the most resolved caveats, and you'll also want to ensure that once you upgrade the firmware, you upgrade any OS / Hypervisor ENIC and FNIC drivers as well.  As Kenny and Manuel pointed out, read the release notes and check with your System Engineer before making a decision to move forward.  Please also remember to read and resolve any "gotcha's" outlined in the release notes before upgrading.

Take Special Note of this Section:
