Upgrading Firmware & SanOS on MDS9509


I am planning a SanOS upgrade on our (2) 9509's running 2.0(1b)

Before the upgrade I have to verify the new OS version release is supported by our storage interfaces.

Does anyone have advice/prior experience with upgrading that can give me some tips?

I have docs for upgrading the OS, but the firmware is all upgraded and handled on the storage servers, not on the 9509 right?

Thanks in advance!

I strongly recommend you talk to your disk storage vendor as each has a different support matrix for the various combinations of Cisco SAN-OS, server O/S, Disk Array firmware and HBA firmware/drivers.

Hi Brian,

Before upgrading the SNA OS, you need to make sure that the new SAN OS is supported by your storage vendor.

You can find the SAN OS- Storage Vendor compatibility information on the following URL.

However, the information we have here might not be up to date, so it is suggested to check this with the storage vendor.

I would also check the caveats of of the new OS to know the open and closed problems in that release.

Here is for 2.1.2 :
