Our department is looking seriously at the Cisco UCS platform for our compute resource in our datacenters moving forward. As part of the research into the UCS platform, I need to get my hands on a sample configuration that I could load into my UCS Platform Emulator. Sure, I can build my own config in the emulator, but without having a UCS environment of my own yet, I would like to see how others have done it, so that (specifically from a networking perspective), I can analyze a "real" configuration in the emulator so that I can easily comprehend how everything (physical, virtual) is tied together. Ideally, I would like to look at a config that was built for a VMware environment.
Are there any sample configs posted on Cisco's site? I was not able to find one.
I have written a PowerShell script that builds a UCS configuration from the ground up. I have included a sample configuration for a UCS as part of the tool. I have used my tool on the emulator and real system many time with success. If this is of interest to you, you can find it at:
UCS Base Configuration Builder PowerShell Script
Let me know if you have any problem or questions.
This was exactly what I was looking for, Thanks!
