We are currently working on some Cisco ACI Integration and wanted to add a large VLAN Pool to a UCS Configuration. Since currently Cisco UCS does not allow selecting multiple VLAN’s easily when adding to a VLAN Group or vNIC Template, we now have a pretty decent script that will do it for you. The script can be found here. # PowerCLI Script for adding VLAN to VLAN Group and vNIC Template # @davidstamen # http://davidstamen.
I am honored to have been accepted as a Cisco Champion for 2015! I guess this means I will continue and post to expand content on Cisco UCS and Cisco IronPort.
Building out some new servers today I came across an issue where the servers would have no network connectivity even though the vNICs were properly tagged and assign a VLAN ID. Upon further research, I noticed that “Native VLAN” was not selected. This is a must for any operating system that does not do VLAN Tagging such as ESXi. So remember to set the VLAN to Native if using an operating system that does not support VLAN tagging!
