c7000 OA firmware update path

We currently have v2.41 installed on a c7000 chassis and would like to go to v3.11 as we have G7 Blade Servers going into deployment shortly.

I would like to understand the upgrade process and downtime requirements/risks etc. involved in this upgrade.

Thanks

Roger

Re: c7000 OA firmware update path

Roger,

A bit more information if you please:

what blades are installed now? BIOS & ILO version?
what interconnect devices? Virtual connect? what version firmware on those?

If you have VC and it's really old, you have to be very careful how you do this upgrade. Do not just upgrade the onboard admin without consulting HP first (and I would suggest you open the support call from ITRC to avoid the first level disasters...)

Re: c7000 OA firmware update path

we are currently at v3.60 of the OA on our c7000 chassis can I upgrade directly to 4.01 or do I need to do 3.71 first then 4.01.
