The Cisco UCS C-Series Drivers DVD ISO image is available from the Cisco.com support site under Unified Computing and Servers > Cisco UCS Rack-Mount Standalone Server Software > server_model Server Software > Unified Computing System (UCS) Drivers .

To view the list of available server models, go to the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html?mdfid=283612685&flowid=26802.


The drivers are organized into top-level folders by operating system, and each operating system folder has a hierarchically structured series of subfolders that become increasing specific so that you can find the exact drivers you need. When you navigate to a folder that contains drivers, it will also contain one or more README files that describes what those particular drivers are used for.

An example of the folder structure for Windows follows:

Windows
   ChipSet
      vendor
         blade-model-number
            OS-version-number
               All
               ia64
               Lang (contains language subfolders)
               Vista
               x64
   Mgmt
      Emulex
         model-number
            ElxPlus
               OS-version-number
                  x64
