This document lists the minimum and recommended Cisco NX-OS software releases for use with Cisco Nexus 7000 Series switches. If you are running a release prior to the minimum recommended, Cisco advises upgrading the image to the recommended release. These recommendations are general and should not replace environment specific design review efforts and should not override Advanced Services recommended releases if employed.
1.NX-OS 4.2, 5.0, 5.1, 5.2, 6.0, and 6.1 have been announced End-of-Sale/End-of-Life (EoL). While NX-OS Release 5.2(9a) and Release 6.1(5a) are viable releases, they are announced EoS/EoL. Release 6.2.12 may be a better option because of continued planned maintenance releases. For more information, refer to the announcements at the following link:
To the extent possible, Cisco recommends upgrading to one of the NX-OS releases listed previously. If that is not possible, Cisco recommends that you review the Cisco NX-OS Release Notes for the earlier release and the Bug Tool Kit to determine the impact of any open caveats.
In addition, consult Cisco NX-OS Release Notes for minimum supported releases for specific hardware and software features.
