I have been having issues ever since I updated to vSphere 6.x getting the Cisco Drivers to properly update through VMware Update Manager(VUM). Every time I would run through a compliance check, they would always report they were up to date even when they were running an older version.
Time for more UCS Scripting! This time to configure Syslog. The script is pretty straightforward, but nice to have to easily set up Syslog across multiple UCS domains.
Time for more UCS Scripting! This time to enable SNMP. The script is pretty straightforward, but nice to have to easily set up SNMP across multiple UCS domains.
For conformity, we like to set the UCS Equipment labels to match the Service Profile Name. This allows us to match it quickly without having to dig down into the assigned profile. This script will set the UsrLbl and Name fields on the equipment tab to match the name of the Service Profile.
Automation, Automation, Automation! I had to download some support bundles for every chassis in our multiple zones. Instead of manually going through the GUI, I figured why not script it! This script will connect to each UCS domain and automatically generate a support bundle and download it for each chassis.
It’s patch time! That means time to upload the firmware bundles to all my UCS domains. Instead of doing it manually I figured i would create a quick script to do that for me.
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!
Im finally getting to dive back in to working with UCS. My latest task with my project of configuring 9 UCS Domains, was swapping out certificates. The first few I did via the GUI, and I thought can this be scripted? Well the answer is yes! See below for information on executing the script.
We are currently working on some Cisco ACI Integration and wanted to add a large VLAN Pool to a UCS Configuration.
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.
