I've seen similar requests in to Cisco before, so I wouldn't be surprised to see it in a future version. At first, I too was a little annoyed to see that the firmware get broken up, but it makes sense why they did it - especially with C-series integration. Why download code for C-series servers if you're not using it? Just grab the 3 or 4 total packages you need (maximum). It also makes it easier for Cisco to release new hardware (blades, C-series) without having to upgrade the infrastructure code.

It figures that what I liked the most about firmware upgrades on UCS i.e. not having to go locate pieces under various sections, would change to the more common Cisco practice of having to go find the many pieces. What I'd prefer to see would be for the process of locating and downloading the firmware to be part of the UCS Manager i.e. supply a username/pass for the Cisco site, and the Manager displays the current pieces and offers to download them directly to the UCS for you.
