Downloading new Firmware to Cisco UCS fails with error "File >1GB"...

Hello,

we are currently planning to upgrade the firmware of our Cisco UCS (Infra, B and C Series) from 2.2.7b to 3.1.3a.

The process itself is pretty much straight forward.

I already downloaded the bundle A und B (Infra & B-Series) to the internal storage but when I try to download bundle B (C-Series) from local file it stops at 99% and says file is to large (>1GB) to be downloaded.

The funny thing about this is, that the offical Cisco .bin file for C-Series ist 1.05GB large, so the error message is correct. 

But how I should I be able to download the file to internal storage? (internal storage has 70% space free)

Is there another way to achieve and circumnavigate this, or do we have to take another (older) version first to be able to download and install the file?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Kind Regards

Sebastian

Hello,

This is a known defect. CSCvc48423 You can transfer the file remotely via FTP/TFTP/SFTP/SCP and it will transfer successfully.
