Cisco UCS Upgrade from 1.3 to 1.4(1)m
Please see the below two links for the full step by step guide to performing the upgrade.
nice video thanks
Very informative and was helpful to get me from 1.4 to 2.0 code on my UCS environment. Interestingly enough I made the mistake of attempting to upgrade my UCS chassis FEX modules and reboot them before upgrading the FIs. The FEX modules defaulted back after the failed attempt to the original stable code. I should have followed these sooner, would have saved me the time.
Thanks for sharing this. If this also apply to udpate from 1.4 (2b) to 2.1 ?
Yes it would! But always follow the guide for the version you are going from and to, as there may be slight differences. See your link below.
Why don’t you try using the new Firmware Auto Install :-)
Does the CNA card update performed through the UCS GUI update the actual drive on the OS ie VMware, Windows??
The CNA update, only updates the FW of the CNA, to upgrade / Patch the OS you just use the usual tools i.e. VUM, WSUS etc..
Thanks! Also the upgrade guide seems to indicate the cross firmware support for 2.1 requiers server FW to be at 2.0(4), my servers are running 2.0(2q) does this mean we need to perform a two step upgrade 2.0(2q) to 2.0(4) than to 2.1?

before going for firmware upgrade what are the prerequisites or the preventive measure we take on VMware Host or on the Guest OS like Linux
Your normal pre-reqs would suffice
i.e. have a backup of your server.
UCS keeps a backup copy of the previous FW, so role back is a very easy process if required.
