  • Checking UCS Settings from the UCS Manager CLI – I was recently using the UCS Manager CLI and I wanted to share my findings. You can SSH to the UCSM (UCS Manager) and then run commands to figure out information about your hardware configuration. Whenever working with Cisco UCS Servers, the first thing we need to figure out is how Service Profiles are used in a UCS Environment.
  • Add a VLAN to a UCS blade via the CLI | VirtuallyMikeBrown – What I really wanted to do was add a couple existing VLANs to the vNIC of an ESXi host on a blade (so I could vMotion some stuff around). Of course, with the GUI, it’s a few clicks. Without the GUI (and not knowing where to go in the CLI), I was at a bit of a loss.The UCS CLI guide wasn’t helpful as it was more for managing the hardware or upstream configs – not so much for what would seem like a task made for UCSM. So to get on with it, let me share the quick config for adding VLANs to vNICs.
