Hello,

Re: Firmware Upgrade | G7 Servers

All depends on the VC ethernet and FC modules you are using.


Hope this helps!

Re: Firmware Upgrade | G7 Servers

Get SPP2016.04, run it on a local PC and discover the blade enclosure.

Update OA, VC, and the blade firmware and drivers.

Deselect the network firmware, because I remember there are no network drivers for this old ESX version.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
