We just installed the UCS management pack 2.0.3 on our vROPS 6.4 appliance. But we have a strange behavior related to user accounts:

If I login to vROPS with the local admin I can see Dashboard and the configured adapter just under the local admin account. Not for vCenter Server admin. If I configure the adapter with a vCenter Server admin. I can see now that the adapter is configured for both local admin and vCenter Server admins but the Dashboards are still empty for the vCenter Server admins. Just the local admin is seeing the collected data. I also change the vrealize user in the adapter settings to both local and vcenter server admin user, but this isn't changing this behavior.

Regards,

Oliver

Hi Oliver,

We are unable to reproduce your issue in-house. Please let us know your available timings so that we can have a web-ex to understand your issue better.

Thanks,

I'm working with a customer and we have successfully implemented the management pack to monitor several UCS domains. I'm trying to determine if this management pack can be used with individual Cisco servers, in this case a C220 M4S. They have a few that are not managed within a UCS domain and would like to monitor these in vRealize Operations.

What are the port requirements for the adapter? UCS is in OOB network for me and VROPS is behind the FW. What ports do I need to open on FW for the communication to work?

Thanks. !

Hi Neil,

This is currently not supported by our management pack. Only servers managed by UCS Domains are supported.

Hi Aman,

You will need to open either port 443 or 80 depending on the configuration of your adapter. Please make sure that UCS Manger is reachable from the vROps network.

installed new vROPs v6.6.1 & new UCS pack v2.0.3 but process fails on UCS instance configuration access.

using local vrops & local ucs accounts which produces error: 

Unable to establish a valid connection to the target system. Test failed! Error(551) - Authentication failed

here's a screenshot of credential used, which was reported as working on march 8 in this forum:

i confirmed i can login to ucs & vrops using the specified local credentials, so what am i missing?

Jeff,

I had the same issue. Look at Andrew Cody's reply from March 8th. For the VROM credentials I had to plug in the local admin as shown in his attached jpeg and the connection then worked.

Hi ,

 

Cisco UCS Management pack supports servers, both blades and racks, managed through FI (UCS Manager) only. It does not support standalone rack servers. We do not have any plans as of now to support standalone servers.

 

We will let you know when we add the support.

 

Thanks,

Deepika

Hi, Is there any chance that the VIF Paths of each service profile could be seen in the collected information in a near future release? This kind of information is seen in the vShpere Plugin but we cannot really use that in a way we could in vROPS... Thanks,
