Cisco UCS Hardware Compatibility Report allows you to check interoperability information for Cisco UCS components and configurations that have been tested and verified by Cisco, Cisco partners, or both. You can run reports and check the status against your current software version or a target software version.
The hardware compatibility report checks the compatibility of the operating systems on servers, and then checks the adapter drivers associated with that operating system.
