Using UCS PowerTool To Configure UCS Policy Backup and Export

Im finally getting to dive back in to working with UCS. My latest task with my project of configuring 9 UCS Domains, was configuring the Policy Backup and Export. See below on how to automate this process!


Preparing to Execute the Script

The script is pretty straight forward, just need to define a few variables seen below and then you execute the script. I will walk you through the process.

#Define Variables
$UCS = "FQDNofUCS" #FQDN of UCS To COnnect To
$Hostname = "ucs.lab.local" #Hostname to Upload backup to.
$Protocol = "scp" #Transfer Protocol. ftp,scp,tftp,sftp
$User = "ftpuser" #Username
$Password = "ftpuser" #Password
$MgmtBackupRemoteFile = "Full" #Location/Prefix of File. Location/Prefix will be in front of filename
$ConfigBackupRemoteFile = "AllConfig" #Location/Prefix of File. Location/Prefix will be in front of filename
$AdminState = "enable" #enable or disable
$Schedule = "1day" #1day, 7day, 14day for daily, weekly or biweekly backups

Execute the Script

  • Run .\Set-UCSPolicyBackupandExport.ps1
  • Logon and UCSM, Navigate to Admin/All and Then select the Policy Backup & Export.
    • Verify Settings.

Hope this helps anyone else out wanted to automate policy backup & export on Cisco UCS.
