Sounds like you got the server with no software installed. If you ordered the NFR, this is apparently normal as I just went through the same thing. You will need to request the demo software that doesn't ship with everything else for some reason.

If this is not a demo system, then my guess is either you ordered the wrong part number (ending with a "=" meaning spare) or you have a disk failure. Regardless, a call to TAC should clear this up.


I have the same issue, trying to perform initial setup on Cisco UCS C210 M2 server for DMM, but does not boot DMM 'First of Boot Start', tries to boot from network and fails to find bootable media.

I have a DMM 5.2.3 Upgrade CD, included with licensing details, but which does not boot either.

Did you find a fix for this ?? Did you need to order software ?


Please see below link to find details which HW support fresh install of

5.2.x software and which needs an upgrade path. Upgrade CD / DVD are not

bootable and if you are trying to install it as a fresh install on Supported

HW please request this software via TAC. Thanks.
