UCS always recommends to keep vNIC MTU same as that of assigned QoS policy priority class value.
Below warning appears when you assign QoS policy to any vNIC.
When the QoS policy is not assigned to vNIC, it takes the best-efforts class.
In huge domains, there are cases where one incorrect setting in service profile template leads to multiple profiles with MTU mismatch and MTU mismatch can lead to issues like packet drops, slow drain for the domain.
This powershell script will login to UCS, gather all vNIC Name, MAC Address, VNIC template, vNIC level MTU, set QoS policy Name, set QoS policy MTU value and will compare vNIC level MTU with its corresponding Global QoS MTU. Script will provide an output csv with all mentioned fields and MTU comparison status value.
I created this script so that it can be run against single /multiple domains having MTU Mismatch and fetch all vNIC MTU data, allowing one to easily find out all service profiles and vNICs with MTU mismatch. In turn, one can remediate all MTU mismatch issues to avoid slow-drain or CRC related issues.
Prerequisites on client machine from where script will be executed:
PowerShell v3 or greater Network access to UCSM Cisco UCS PowerTool for PowerShell installed in the client machine
Some time ago we decommissioned one of our Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnect configurations. At the time we did not think to remove it from vReallize Orchestrator. We have now run into the situation that the UCS Manager Plugin always says 'Error in plug-in' w...

Hello all, I worked on a vRO workflows (vRO 7.5) to automate the cisco blade integration. This service was up for the last few months with no problems.But lately, my ucs-central plug-in (1.0.1) stopped working, therefore I can no longer see or work w...
With all VMware Products and most other vendor products converting to Appliance based, the fact that the UCS Manager Plug-in for VMware still requires an IIS server to function is crazy. When everyone's VMware infrastructure was Windows Based this was fin...
