Can the auto-installer thats in the new 2.1 train be used to upgrade from 2.0(4d) to 2.1(1e)?

Yes you can. You just need to get the UCS Manager upgraded first to see this new feature.

Here is a link for the complete instructions.

Thanks!

I have another question though.

How does auto install reboot each server?

We use UCS for our vmware environment and I want to upgrade each blade one at a time.

I would recommend utilizing a maintenance policy.

A maintenance policy determines how Cisco UCS Manager reacts when a change that requires a server reboot is made to a service profile associated with a server or to an updating service profile bound to one or more service profiles.

The maintenance policy specifies how Cisco UCS Manager deploys the service profile changes. The deployment can occur in one of the following ways:

  • Immediately
  • When acknowledged by a user with admin privileges
  • Automatically at the time specified in the schedule

If you notice on this link for the upgrade - step 10 talks about this policy.
