Goal

Manually upgrade Infiniband switch firmware in SuperCluster rack if ibsw-patchmgr is having failures or if upgrading them out of band. Perform the below steps only if you can afford production downtime as the below steps can result in DB node evictions when executed on a production (live) system. Production downtime needs to be accessed based on the number of DB domains in the rack.
