Starting with Software Release 2.1, the Cisco UCS Manager A bundle software (UCS Manager, NX-OS, IOM Firmware) can be mixed with previous release's B or C bundles on the servers (host FW, BIOS, CIMC, adapter FW and Drivers). A given server must be running the entire B-bundle, so mixing the 2.0(3a)B BIOS with the 2.0(4b)B CIMC is not supported. "

I would like to know, what previous release's B or C bundles, means.
Cisco UCS supports cross-version firmware support in the following way:
Infrastructure firmware must be at the current release.
Server firmware can be at one release prior to the infrastructure firmware.
For example, if you upgrade the infrastructure firmware to Cisco UCS, Release 2.1, you can have firmware on some or all of the servers in a Cisco UCS domain can remain at the most recent version of Cisco UCS, Release 2.0(4).Important:
If you implement cross-version firmware, you must ensure that the configurations for the Cisco UCS domain are supported by the firmware version on the server endpoints. For example, the minimum power budget for the servers must be no lower than the minimum supported in Cisco UCS, Release 2.0(4). The lower budget supported in Cisco UCS, Release 2.1 is not supported for servers that are running Cisco UCS, Release 2.0(4) firmware.
