Cisco has released the 3.0(1) beta version of the the Cisco UCS Manager VMware vSphere HTML client plugin. The UCS Manager vSphere HTML client plugin enables a virtualization administrator to view, manage and monitor the Cisco UCS physical infrastructure. The plugin provides a physical view of the UCS hardware inventory on the HTML client. You can perform the following tasks using the plug-in:
• View Cisco UCS physical hierarchy
• View inventory, installed firmware, faults, power and temperature statistics
• Map the ESXi host to the physical server
• Manage firmware for B and C series servers
• View VIF paths for servers
• Launch the Cisco UCS Manager GUI
• Launch the KVM consoles of UCS servers
• Switch the existing state of the locator LEDs
Please see the attached User Guide for specific information on installing and using the plugin with the vSphere HTML client.
The attached registration tool must be used to register the plugin with an existing vSphere HTML client version 6.7 or later. Here is an example registration tool information screen:
Once the plugin is registered and the vSphere HTML client has been restarted (browser re-opened), the Shortcuts menu in the vSphere HTML client will show a Cisco UCS Monitoring icon:
UCS Domains can be registered from the Management Center menus by providing access information and credentials for each domain:
When a domain is registered, the plugin can be used to perform common configuration operations and monitor UCS domains, servers, and VMs from within the vSphere HTML client:
The UCS Manager plugin is currently in beta and supported directly through community.cisco.com. Please post comments here with questions or feedback.
