UCS Available Slots PowerShell Script


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.

Change Log:

     v0.6 - Initial Posted Version

     v0.7 - New look and feel.  Common scripting elements.  Checks that you are running PowerShell v3 or above.

     v0.7.01 - Added built in help.  Command line options.  Standard naming convention.

     v0.7.02 - Added support for saved credentials file

     v0.7.03 - Added support for B200-M4 and B260-M4/B460-M4

     v0.8 - Major updates in the logic to identify the slots of a Blade.

               Added support for Full Width, Double High blades, for ex. B460.

As always, let me know if you have any questions, problems or suggestions.

great script! any chance in adding support for double decker blades? B460?

As per the change log, it supports B460. Are you seeing any issues?

hmm... when i search the script I don't see any entry for (B460) UCSB-EX-M4-2. These blades are double decker and while they show up in slot 7 on the report they are actually in 5,6,7,8.

i see this line --

elseif (("B440-BASE-M2", "N20-B6620-2", "N20-B6625-2", "N20-B6740-2", "UCSB-B420-M3", "UCSB-EX-M4-1") -icontains $bladeID)

But that only writes to the next two spots 7,8 -- not to 5,6


Hi John,

We have added the support for B460 blades, please download again and give a try.

We will be waiting for your feedback on this.

Great utility.

I added to it to show if a blade was associated and what the service profile was...
