How to Update File OE of VNX 5700 - VNX Series Operating Environment

The system comes pre-installed with the latest version of VNX OE software available at the
time of shipment.
In addition to upgrading the VNX OE software, the USM wizards can be used for installing
other software, such as language packs, software enablers, and disk firmware. For these
tasks, EMC provides the ability to create instructions tailored to your environment. Go to
the Update VNX software link on https://mydocs.emc.com/VNX to create these customized
procedures.



To upgrade the operating environment on a system, you need:

xxxx_emcnas_DVD.iso packages, where xxxx is the version of the File OE. EMC requires
that you download the File OE software (the .tar and .iso) to the following location:
