Install the ESXi 5.5 or ESXi 6.0 on UCS-E via CMIC
From the admin PC connect to CIMC
Map the ESXi image
Change the boot order to boot into the mapped image
Continue installing ESXi
Configure the ESXi management settings to access it from the network
Configure the Vswitch and Port Groups with the appropriate VNIC
Make sure to set the network adapter to accept the following modes:
promiscuous, MAC address Changes and Forged Transmits.
Use sudo /usr/local/sf/bin/configure-network to configure the management settings Configure Management IP, Subnet and Default Gateway Open https GUI connection to add the NGFWv to FMC
User is prompted for EULA and post-boot configuration configure manager add <manager ip> <user chosen id>
Install the NGFWv (FTDv) on ESXi running on two different UCS-E modules
Repeat the steps above on the second UCS-E blade if configuring HA.

UCS-E Exernal Ports (G2) for VLAN 21 and VLAN 31
No Configuration required in Router for the external interfaces connected to the Switch directly
The switch port connected to the UCS-E external ports should be enabled with the trunk port for VLANs ( in this use case vlan 21 and vlan 31)

NGFWv Interface to Port-Group Mapping
In case of E1000,FTDv use only one network adapter for mgmt. In case of VMXNET3, it consume two adapter for mgmt.
Using E1000,the FTDv interface to Network adapter mapping is in order, but using VMXNET3 it is random. when you change from E1000 to VMXNET3, you need to do correct mapping properly
Configure the NGFWv High Availability between them through Firepower Management Center(FMC)
