As a Microsoft Azure Stack Hub systems provider, Dell Technologies is committed to ensuring that Azure Stack Hub SUs are both secure and functional. Dell Technologies releases updates for the Dell EMC Integrated System for Microsoft Azure Stack Hub system regularly. These updates may include software, operating-system drivers, security policies, and firmware updates across core components of the system. Dell Technologies delivers updates that may be applied independently of Microsoft updates.
Even though Dell Technologies provides guidance about how to apply the various packages, the specific order in which they are applied is not mandatory. Microsoft typically releases its packages before Dell Technologies releases its customer toolkit. We recommend that you apply the Azure Stack Hub software full updates and hotfixes before running the Dell EMC-specific packages.
We recommend that you apply the updates in the following order:
- Microsoft Azure Stack Hub software updates and hotfixes
- Dell EMC OEM extension packages
- Dell EMC firmware and operating-system updates
