Upgrading VxRack FLEX with VxFlex Manager

The procedures in this section provide details on using VxFlex Manager to upgrade VxRack FLEX.

VxFlex Manager automates some of the steps that are required to upgrade from one VxRack FLEX RCM release to another. If you have VxFlex Manager 3.1, you can use it to automate the upgrade process for Cisco switches, firmware updates for all VxFlex Manager managed nodes, and also ESXi driver updates for ESXi nodes. If you are using VxFlex Manager, you do not need to perform some of the manual upgrade procedures described in the remaining sections of this guide. The manual steps that you do need to perform are called out specifically.

If you are not using VxFlex Manager, skip this section and proceed with the manual upgrade procedures that follow.
