This UCS PowerShell Script will log into multiple UCS domains and provide you information on the UCS system including the name, site and version and then go through each chassis and tell you what is plugged into each slot and if there is an open slot. If you provide user labels and descriptions on the chassis' and blades you can get more detailed information.
The purpose of this script is to allow someone with a large deployment to quickly find out where in their data centers they have open slots to add more blades and if the firmware on the UCS will support the new blade.
