Upgrading OA 3.31 -> 3.60 and VC 3.30 -> 3.60

We are looking at upgrading 4 of our enclosures (mix of proliants and Itaniums) from/to the above versions.     (being forced by the arrival of a new enclosure at 3.60/3.60, and to accomodate blade upgrades to G8's)

 

Is anyone aware of any issues/problems with this upgrade??

 

thanks

 

Dave.

It may depend - latest versions are 3.71 for OA and 3.75 for VC, but NOT supported for all servers/VC modules.

You should check what the latest supported versions are for your equipment.


Hope this helps!

not really looking beyond 3.60 for OA or VC, unless they provide fixes for serious bugs.     Just trying to get all enclosures to same, consistent FW.

 

Our newest enclosure came with 3.60/3.60 so that is our goal.    

 

I am checking out more recent versions to see if they justify moving the goal.

 

thanks

I'd take the VC's to 3.70 (there isn't much different between 3.70 and 3.75) - you get the advanced telemetry/statistics and the fun GUI interface to see them.  I am running 3.60/3.70 without issue.  

 

Edit: I went 3.30 -> 3.51 -> 3.70.  I believe there was a bug if you went 3.30 -> 3.60 that was resolved with 3.70.

AFAIR there was a problem with updating to 3.60, so the recommended step was -> 3.51->3.60, but solved in 3.70.
Caution, some VC modules don't support a newer version than 3.60.

Hope this helps!
