Big Data Appliance X3-2 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Big Data Appliance X5-2 Hardware - Version All Versions and later

Goal

Introducing a new X5 Exadata into the Infiniband fabric and need to upgrade the IB firmware on all of the other IB switches before doing so on BDA and Exadata IB switches.

All current switches are on IB firmware version 2.1.3-4. The new X5 IB switches are using 2.1.5-1, so we need to see if that is the version we want to update all of the other switches to. Since the IB firmware comes packaged with Exadata patches, we need to see if 2.1.5-1 will work with the current Exadata patch we are using.
