Cisco UCS deploy and ESXi 4 install guides
Posted on Tuesday, November 17, 2009 | 1 Comment
Cisco have posted two documents into their support forum around deploying the Unified Computing System (UCS)
Deploying UCS Blade Server with UCS Manager for Virtualization
The documents include many screen shots and may serve as a good primer for those wanting to investigate UCS.
I do think that the Fabric Interconnect setup section in the first document should have the CLI method included as well. Likewise as most implementations will require the setting up of a pair of F-I's this part should be there too, after all its not difficult.
The VMware ESXi install instructions talk about changing the boot order in the blades BIOS, however this should really be done from within UCSM. It also covers local installation and not boot from SAN which should be the typical deployment.
