Basic Workflow for Installing the E-Series Server or NCE into the Router
- Verify that the router, the E-Series Server or NCE, and the Cisco IOS software version that is installed on the router are compatible.
- Install the
E-Series Server or
NCE into the router.
If you are migrating the E-Series Server from a Cisco ISR G2 into a Cisco ISR 4000 series, you must first update the CIMC firmware image to release 2.0(1.20130626092411) or the latest version and the BIOS firmware image to release 22.214.171.124 or the latest version—while the E-Series Server is still installed in the Cisco ISR G2—and then migrate it into the Cisco ISR 4000 series. For CIMC firmware installation instructions, see the "CIMC Firmware Management" chapter in the GUI Configuration Guide for Cisco UCS E-Series Servers and the Cisco UCS E-Series Network Compute Engine on Cisco.com.
- Verify that the E-Series Server or the NCE is correctly detected by the router.
