I managed to the the fabric interconnects, UCSM and IOMs updated but when I look at the installed firmware tab, I can see that all the "Server" components are still at 1.1.
I'm unsure as to whether I'm missing something here from the 2nd link listed above when it lists the following steps:
In the Navigation pane, click the Servers tab.
On the Servers tab, expand Servers > Policies.
Expand the node for the organization that includes the policy you want to update.
If the system does not include multi-tenancy, expand the root node.
Expand Host Firmware Packages and select the policy you want to update.
In the table on the right, do the following to delete the existing entry for the firmware you want to update:
Select the line in the table for the firmware version that you want to change.
Right-click and select Delete.
Click Yes to confirm that you want to delete that entry.
When I navigate to the "host firmware packages", I have no packages listed in there. How do I proceed in updating the servers? I've attached a screenshot of what I see in the installed firmware tab. Thanks.
You have to go to Equipment->Server to work one server at a time. When in Server view, go down to "Installed Firmware" and open "Update Firmware": select 1.2 as the "Backup Version" (I see you already did it).
When GUI says "ready" under "update Status" column, you can go on to click on "Activate Firmware": at THAT time the blade will reboot, placing previous 1.2 "Backup Version" to the new "Running Version".
Is it the answer you were looking for, or you wanted a method to do it automatically ?
Thanks for your reply. I didn't get the chance to try your method out today but will try it tomorrow after hours. I find it strange that the guide to update 1.1 to 1.2 doesn't provide a way to update the blades either via your manual way or an automatic way to do all the blades at once. Am I missing something? Did you go through the steps for the profiles? I had no profiles to update because none were defined.
