Hi, I am wondering how you guys do to keep up with software versions in your environment. So, lets say that we have VMware ESXi, VCenter/Realize, Citrix, NetApp, NetScaler, Cisco UCS, Palo Alto, Switches etc etc etc….
Then you know that VMware or NetScaler needs to be updated to a newer version or a firmware upgrade is required, how do you make sure that all of these other softwares arent affected? I saw some examples created in a excel file but it seems to be unmanageable.
UCS for example, can have firmwares that can impact on the network configuration cascading that to switches etc…..
Any suggestions? Any software out there that can manage versions, and tells you whether or not an particular upgrade can affect the rest of your environment?
