Dell CMC, v.1.10, A00

Chassis Management Controller (CMC) Firmware Version 1.10

Fixes & Enhancements

- Support for optional upgrade FlexAddress feature.
The FlexAddress feature is an optional upgrade that allows the chassis to assign WWN/MAC (World Wide Name/Media Access Control) addresses to Fibre Channel and Ethernet devices. Chassis-assigned WWN/MAC addresses are globally unique, and specific to a server slot within a given chassis. This feature allows the chassis to assign a WWN/MAC address (Chassis Assigned IDs) that stays with a particular slot in the chassis. If a server is replaced, the FlexAddress for the slot remains the same for that given server slot. If the server is inserted into a new slot or chassis, the server-assigned WWN/MAC is used unless the FlexAddress feature is enabled for the new slot. If you remove the server, it will revert to the server-assigned address.
- CMC will block any user attempt to upload a non-Web server certificate. A user error will be returned.
- If a user has uploaded a non-Web server certificate using CMC firmware version 1.01, after a firmware install and reboot of 1.10, the non-Web server certificate will be removed.
