Hi Community !
I need to update VMware vSphere on a Cisco C210 M2 standalone server. I check the compatibility matrix and find the latest firmware version supported with VMware vSphere 5.5: version 1.5(6).
As I understand, updating server firmware needs HUU.
When I go to Downloads Home Products Servers - Unified Computing UCS C-Series Rack-Mount Standalone Server Software UCS C210 M2 Rack-Mount Server Software, the latest version available is 1.4(3x).
Anybody know why?
Excuse me. Where are gone yesterday answers to this thread?
Your answer is clearly false. First, I checked the UCS HW & SW tool before opening this thread.
As explained in my previous "disappeared" posts, this utility contains errors:
- The configuration includes one note: "The C210-M2 server requires release 1.4.3u [use HUU 1.4.3u].". This means, use the u version, not the lastest.
- The UCS release selected is 1.5(6). This version doesn't exist for the C210 M2.
The lastest version (included in HUU 1.4.3x) is :
- CIMC : 1.4(3x)
- BIOS : 1.4.3l
It seems this is the right version to be used with vSphere 5.5.
Please, update this tool. Informations are wrong and I have never seen as little ergonomic tool: unable to find the minimum compatible version of the firmware to be used with a specific OS version.
Updated/Corrected from Previous Erroneous Post:
C210-M2 is End of Sale.
- The latest HUU for a C210-M2 Server is 1.4.3x. The Asterisked Version is Engineering Recommendation.
- There is no support for ESXi 5.5, Support stopped at ESXi 5.0u1 - Please refer to the Hardcopy HW/SW Compatibility Guide.
please check the following URL: Release Notes for the VMWare ESXi Installable Cisco Custom ISO Image - Cisco
Server C210/C200 M2 supports VMWare 5.5 (without any update) if they are running CIMC 1.4(3u), since CIMC 1.4(3x) is a minor upgrade it should fall in to the same support list...I guess.
It would be nice if someone from Cisco could answer us...
