  • NetApp HCI compute nodes

Answer

Before upgrading any 'NetApp Element' components run a Cluster Health Check using the Hybrid Cloud Control (HCC).

( Follow the order as applicable to the issue in hand. For example if you are just going to install ESXi OS patch using VUM (VMware Update Manager) then no need to update HCC management services etc.)

  1. HCC management services
  2. Element Plug-in for vCenter Server
  3. Compute node drivers
  4. Compute node firmware
  5. ESXi version

Additional Information

Upgrade order (VMware): In which order would you upgrade first, firmware or ESXi
