STP0004: Upgrade UCS Core
When a new release of UCS code is released you need to do a few things in sequence, and add these all together you get something called "UCS Upgrade Standard Operating Procedure". Here's what the summary of that SOP looks like:
Be notified of the release :-)
Read the Release Notes and work out If You Care (ie. is there a bug fix or feature you need?)
Download the new code from the Internet into your Software Repository before loading it into UCSM.
Apply the upgrade to the Core Components (FEX/IOM, UCSM, FI)
Apply the upgrade to the Blade Components (BMC, CNA, BIOS, ROM, LSI, SAS)
Backout / roll-back the changes if it all goes wrong.
Each of these steps has its own set of actions wrapped up in Standard Technical Procedures (STP). This STP0004 is Step 4 and builds on the User Guide and other helpful docs to provide you a prescriptive, unambiguous and enterprise-operations relative way to get new UCS code from Cisco to UCS. Updating and activating core UCS components is a multi-step process and the sequence is important to ensure a 100% success rate.
