MCS OS and HP System Management updates

Answered Question
Jun 30th, 2010

For HP MCS's, is it ok to update the firmware using the HP System Management or are the compatible updates included in the Cisco OS 2003.1.5x? I don't want to break any functionality.

Hi


I would say that if you have a specific problem to fix that is firmware related and not addressed in a Cisco-issued patch, then update firmware.


Otherwise, stick with what is included in the OS updates from Cisco. This would mean you are running a combination of software and firmware as tested by Cisco, maintain your supportability from a TAC point of view, and ensure that if you hit problems you're more likely to find a fix if you are running the same versions as other customers...
