About the firmware repository

An embedded firmware repository enables you to upload SPP firmware bundles and hotfixes to the appliance and deploy them across your environment according to your best practices. You can view the versions and contents of the SPPs in the repository from the Firmware Bundles screen. Selecting a firmware bundle displays its release date, supported languages and operating systems, and the bundle components. You cannot add a firmware bundle that is larger than the amount of space available in the repository.

NOTE:

To ensure that your hardware has the latest and most robust firmware bundle that takes advantage of all available management features, download the latest firmware bundle to your appliance and add it to the firmware repository.

You can manually expand the virtual disk to increase the size of the firmware repository from the default 12 GB to 100 GB (minimum total disk space of 275 GB required). The best practice is to expand the virtual disk during appliance installation.
