OS/Software version does not match requirement for Cisco Nexus

Vendor

Cisco

Description

Indeni can verify that the OS/software version installed is a specific one.

Remediation Steps

Install the OS/software version required.
1. Check that the vPC peers have the same NX-OS version except during the non-disruptive upgrade, that is, In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU).
2. Execute the "show version" NX-OS command and check the installed NX-OS version across the vPC peer switches.
3. Schedule a Maintenance Window for NX-OS upgrade in order the vPC peer switches have exact the same NX-OS version.
4. You can follow the next NX-OS upgrade guides for Nexus 9k, 7k, 5k and 3k series:

How does this work?

This script logs into the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and retrieves the output of the "show version" command. The output includes the device's hardware and software related details.

Why is this important?

Capture the device operating system version. The version should be the same across all members of a vPC (cluster).

Without Indeni how would you find this?

It is possible to poll this data through SNMP.
