Deploy UCS environment from scratch

This script is designed to deploy a complete UCS environment from scratch.  The script reads an XML file that contains all the necessary settings for pools, policies, templates, and profiles.  It is designed to deploy either FC or FCoE environments, but it is modular in nature, allowing for additional components, such as iSCSI or SMB, to be added.  It is also designed to allow for resetting values - commands use the -ModifyPresent parameter to allow for changing of values that already exist.  It also allows for values to be skipped by simply not entering anything.

The first half of the script validates the contents of the XML file.  A log file is created that provides the line number of script from where the log entry was made.  The second half of the script updates the UCS environment.

UcsConfig.ps1

<#

UcsConfig.ps1 Version=1.0
Created by Tim Cerling
tcerling@cisco.com

  Execution string:  .\UcsConfig.ps1 -path <path> -validateOnly -toConsole
   <path> - location of input file UcsConfig.xml
   -validateOnly - only validate contents of UcsConfig.xml.  Does not update UCS
   -toConsole - output log file to console instead of log file

This script reads the contents of a configuration file (UcsConfig.XML) that defines the
various pools, policies, templates, and profiles necessary to perform an initial
deployment of a complete UCS system.  It configures the Fabric Interconnect cabling as well
as defining all the components necessary to create service profiles.

All parameters that would normally be entered into the UCSM console are captured into the
UcsConfig.XML file.  Since that requires editing by an individual, this script is divided
into two major components
  1. Validation - the contents of UcsConfig.xml are validated for proper values and formats.
     It is possible to ignore inputs in any field if it is not desired to update that field.
  2. Update - Upon successful completion of validation, the values can be applied to the
     Fabric Interconnects to configure and deploy the system.  The -ModifyPresent parameter
     is used on all update commands, allowing this script to be run against an existing
     system to update it.

One of the goals of this script was to make it easy to understand by someone who is not
very familiar with PowerTool/PowerShell, as a goal is to provide this to consultants to be
able to use this to quickly deploy an environment.  Therefore, it is important to keep it
simple to understand and easy to modify, avoiding compact 'PowerShell-isms' that are more
difficult to determine function.

Because of the length of some of the PowerTool commands, the line continuation character (`)
has been used.  However, when it is used, the subsequent portion of the line is indented
to make it more obvious to the reader.  Use of the continuation character allows for the
complete command to be contained within the viewing area of the PowerShell ISE with no
need to scroll back and forth to see all the required parameters.

Take care in editing this file.  It is better to comment out the detail of an object
rather than deleting it if you do not want to enter values.  This will retain the
structure of the XML should you want to reuse it with more or different values in the
future.  For example, if you have already defined Management IP addresses and do not
want to make any additional changes or additions, you could do something like this:

<MgmtIP>
#    <Pool Name='MgmtIP' Descr='Service Profile management IPs' >
#      <Order>sequential </Order>
#      <Start>10.5.177.200 </Start>
#      <End>10.5.177.249 </End>
#      <Gateway>10.5.177.1 </Gateway>
#      <PrimaryDNS>0.0.0.0 </PrimaryDNS>
#      <SecondaryDNS>0.0.0.0 </SecondaryDNS>

Hello,

I am new to this community so sorry if I use the wrong way for this question.

This is an very interesting script. I there a way to generate the XML file from an excel document so you just have to fill in some parameters and the xml file will be generated?

I had initially written to use an Excel document as input, but I found it to be too restrictive.  For example, using XML allows me an unlimited number of VLANs.  If I used an Excel spreadsheet, I would be limited to the number of cells identified as VLANs.

But to answer your question, yes, it is possible to write a script to read a csv file and export an XML file.  I have not written such a script, but PowerShell easily handles input of csv and output of XML.
