476 In this article, we are providing sample work flows for the private cloud management solution. In our topology, ACI is used for network. We have the placed the BMA in the L3 network. The UCS servers are connected to the leaf of the ACI and storage device is connected with the UCSM FI. We have used the NetApp and VNX storage arrays in this topology. The idea is to give the WF to manage private cloud deployment using the existing UCSD tasks, starting from APIC tenant creation, Server reservation, Bare Metal Provisioning, Creating the Datacenter, Creating Cluster and adding the created host to the cluster. We have used the basic variations in the infra provisioning like SAN Boot and Local Boot.  UCSD Integration Work Flow Examples MGT

You need to update the Storage Policy for the VDC to then deploy VM’s into that.

If you create a datastore then want to use it later then you must varibalize the references later in the workflow.

There use to be an RSS feed for this page.  Any idea what happened to it?  I just saw an update to it for IMC Supervisor but it hasn’t had anything UCSD posted to it for months?

Cisco Employee

I don’t know about the RSS feed, but anything in the 400’s I posted in the last few weeks.

Cisco Employee

The RSS feed is being added back today.  It got lost in a behind the scenes move of these pages.  UCSD was part of UCS and we got our own world and the RSS feed stayed with UCS.

Hi Jeremy,

Yes, Orf is correct. When we created the new UCSD community any UCSD documents updated fell off the UCS Integrations feed. You can grab the new UCS Director content feed in the current UCSD community at this link. https://communities.cisco.com/community/technology/datacenter/compute-and-storage/ucs_management/ucsd

Here is the RSS feed for all content in the UCS Director community. I got this link on the UCSD community home page at the bottom of the "Latest Cisco UCS Director Content" widget. Let us know if this helps.

Hey Everybody.  We invite you to supplement your Cisco Communities experience and collaboration by joining our new developers group, "Cisco UCS Director Developers" (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/cisco-ucs-director-developers).  There will soon be lots of info available for undocumented features, work-arounds, etc. for solving modern DevOps problems.

Hi ,

I am using UCSD 6.5 wanted to make some custom rest calls.Used the following index 211

211UCSD Send/Get APIC API commandUCSD - Send/Get APIC API CommandACI

and followed steps mentioned in the link"UCSD - Send/Get APIC API Command" and imported it in ucsd.

Create a custom api call under

orchestration -> Workflows->Add workfow->Added customAPICAPIcommand in the flow chart

validation is successful. But executing the flow is failing with timeout error

when checked in workflow status it says "execution of task resulted in errors"

Could be be cause you

Have the wrong ip or user Id or password. With out a log excerpt hard to tell what is happening.

I tried using postman for same credentials. It is successful.Can you please suggest where can we check logs.

As WebUI logs shown  in workflow doesn't have much information.

Cisco Employee

The service request log should have the information and also show you input and output variables how they resolved.

Cisco Employee

Hi, this is great to have all those options .

Am I missing something ?

There is no option to "provision a VM from a Template " ?
