There can be many scenarios like PSU troubleshooting or upgrades where we might want to know the current BMC and BIOS version in the cluster. Let’s say for a tracking/planning sheet of firmware upgrades or sometimes its asked from the Nutanix support for an open case you have.
There are two ways to get this information.
- Using IPMI or cli to get the BIOS and BMC versions on individual nodes.
- Using NCC to determine the model, BIOS and BMC version for all nodes.
