Hi,

I'm helping to post the question on behalf of my colleague.


I've a customer would like to swap 5x X6250 on an Old Blade Chassis with 5x X6270 on a New Blade Chassis. We will upgrade the firmware for the Blade Server and the CMM to the latest one. Will the firmware upgrade sufficient to support the swap?

Old Blade Chassis
Sun Blade 6000 Chassis with PCIe v1.1
10x Sun Blade X6250 Server Module

New Blade Chassis
Sun Blade 6000 Chassis with PCIe v2.1
10x Sun Blade X6270 Server Module

Firmware to be upgrade
Sun Blade 6000 Chassis Firmware 3.3 (2010/11/08)
Sun Blade X6250 Server Module Firmware 3.3 (2010/07/06)
Sun Blade X6270 Server Module Firmware 2.3 (2010/04/12)

Thanks.

Legend
