Nutanix AOS Update / Upgrade Guideline

When a new Lenovo Think Agile HX hardware Series best recipe is released and the Nutanix AOS version has changed to a newer version within the best recipe, this should be considered the bare minimum set of requirements necessary to avoid known issues with that version of Nutanix AOS.

Best recipe guidelines for Nutanix AOS:

  • Lenovo recommends applying patches and/or fixes to your Nutanix AOS version to keep up with known issues.
  • Upgrading to a new version of Nutanix AOS: Generally, Lenovo will publish a new version of the best recipe for new major AOS releases.
  • Lenovo’s recommendation is to update your firmware/software stack to the versions listed in the same best recipe as your target Nutanix AOS release.
  • Nutanix Support might require users to upgrade to a new version of AOS. If that AOS version has a bare minimum best recipe that is newer than the best recipe currently being used, it is recommended that users update all their components to match the best recipe of the new AOS version.
  • For example, if a user is following best recipe version 2 with AOS v5.6.2, and Nutanix then requires an update to AOS v5.10, the user should update their best recipe. For this example, an update to best recipe version 3.4 or higher should be applied, because 3.4 is the minimum version required for AOS v5.10. Later versions of best recipes contain fixes for known issues, thus using later versions ensure better outcomes.
