Upgrading server firmware

You can upgrade the server firmware to the latest level.

Before you begin

  • Upload the appropriate firmware bundle from the Firmware tab, available from the Administration selection in the Navigator window.
  • During a firmware upgrade, the server goes through a power recycle and the UCP Advisor Gateway VM fails, and is thus not accessible. To avoid any disruption, migrate the UCP Advisor Gateway appliance to a different server before performing the firmware upgrade.
NoteFirmware upgrades are not currently supported for UCP 4000 servers. For power operations to work, the server should be a part of the vCenter inventory.


  1. In UCP Advisor, click the Compute icon.

  2. In the Navigator window, select the server to be upgraded with the latest firmware.

  3. From the Actions list, select Upgrade Firmware.

  4. Select the firmware bundle to upload and click Next.

    The Summary window opens.
  5. Confirm your selection and click Finish.
