You can download the HUU from Cisco's website to get the latest firmware - ucs-c220-huu-2.0.13f.iso. If it is just windows drivers that you need, Cisco's website also has the latest - ucs-cxxx-drivers-windows.2.0.13b.iso.

Hi Rauenpc

how do I get this iso installed on this server? As it has no GUI base?& the server has no CD Rom is there a particular software I use to load the iso on?.
Thank you for your response by the way

You would use the CiMC. It's essentially the same as an iLO or DRAC. During boot, you will have an option to configure cimc. From there you will be able to set which port to use, and you'll find out the ip address. Bring up the up address in a browser, log in, and you can fire up the kvm. The kvm will allow you to mount iso images to load firmware, OS's, etc.
