HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 Upgrade from 2.34 to 3.15
« on: March 09, 2011, 05:45:04 PM »
This morning I upgraded two HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 Interconnects (switches) in an HP c7000 enclosure from 2.34 to 3.15 using the HP support tool and it took 40 minutes to complete the upgrade. When prompted by the tool I responded by having the interconnects upgrade in a serial path (one at a time) with a 5 minute delay between each.

If you have to perform the same upgrade I would highly advise you reserve more than a 60 minutes maintenance window.

Unfortunately I've got some issue with these specific HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 Interconnects where every time I loose an interconnect I'm taking a hit to my production VMware server farm. I need to roll up my sleeves and try to figure out if the problem is with the HP Virtual Connect or if it's with the core Cisco Nexus 7010 switches.
