OS/Software version does not match requirement for Cisco

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 in to 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?

This script logs in to 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.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

The administrator would have to manually log into the Nexus switch and run the "show verion" NX-OS command to capture hardware/software information such as vendor name, OS name, OS version and hostname.
