Is there a migration path from UCS Central to Intersight SaaS?

I was told there is feature parity between UCS Central and Intersight but I can not find anything on Cisco regards...

So say I have a UCS Central currently managing three UCS domains with global profiles/policies. What it takes to migrate to Intersight?

from what I have gathered there is no support for the Bseries yet else then the  KVM system and basic telemetry. 

 

No profile, no policy.  Only the C series are supported. so if support for anything B-Series is supposed to be there its not available right now.

There is no support for B Series as not able to monitor UCS B or manage UCS B in Intersight?

 

Intersight can be used to fully manage the C series but is the C series limited to UCS managed OR standalone OR both?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Here are the features supported on intersight..

We are working on this migration process.

You can connect each UCS cluster to Intersight and leverage the tools . e.g. FI bandwidth monitoring, HCL and open tac cases..

First thing first, the B-Series Policy Model is currently being engineered into Cisco Intersight. Stay tuned for more information, but there will be a day in the near future when you can Create Policy and "Server Profiles" within Cisco Intersight, and assign those to B-Series Blades and  FI-Managed C Series Servers.

Is there an Update? Because the UCS-B and UCS Central shown, but there is no documentation about the features...

Edvard,

Intersight Managed Mode in Tech Preview is required to push a server profile to a B200.

IMM requires 4th Gen Fabric Interconnects

Currently, service profile templates from Central must be manually created in Intersight (IMM) as a migration path.

Hi jzitcovi,

thanks for your feedback

can you create Policy,Pools,Templates,Profiles from Intersight for a UCSB with the Preview? I didnt find a confirmation about that in the documentations... Because then we have a good usecase for that!

Cheers

Ed

Ed,

 

Detail from the Intersight Help pages..

Hope this helps provide how to build a server profile in Intersight.
