Blade System Firmware Updates

Hi,

I need to update my c7000 bladesystem to allow for a new G7 blade we purchased. I'm curious if there is a preferred order to updating the OA, Virtual Connect, Server iLo's and BIOS.

 

I did find the BladeSystem Matrix 6.0 Compatibility Chart, but don't see if there is any order in which they need to be updated.

 

If this is the wrong forum, please let me know, and I'll repost.

 

Thanks in advance,

Jerame

Re: Blade System Firmware Updates

Hello, this is the right forum.

I tried to search for this as well and found this forum post which has lots of good information:

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/HP-BladeSystem/C7000-OA-Firmware-upgrade/m-p/4799499/highlight/true#M13834

Recommended order: BIOS, ILO, OA, VC

for some details what might happen if you upgrade VC before OA.

Thanks Johan,

I searched for BladeSystem as opposed to C7000. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!!

 

Take care,
