6324 Configuration


We recently got a Mini and I am setting it up.  My experience up to this point has been with the UCS 'Classic' [as Cisco is now calling it...really....I feel like I just got started on it...anyway]. 

My problem is with the network connections from the 6324's to our network.  I have the storage piece working perfectly [FC...the first 2 ports on each FI]...and the network ports [ports 3 & 4 on each FI] are both set up as Uplink ports and connected to my network.

In the UCS 'Classic' world you have a few ports set up for Uplink and a few for Server.  on the 6324, when I switch a port over to Server it fails and gives me an error message about the gbic failing [these are the 1GB gbics].

All that to say that my blades don't seem to be able to 'see' the network...they don't connect to their vlan, can't 'see' their gateway, etc.  Because i think in the UCS 'Classic' mind, I feel like the reason they don't 'see' the network is because all the ports connected to the network are Uplinks [trunks].  But, again, when I set any one of them to be a Server port is fails.

What am I missing?

Thank you Denise!


Any luck with this ?

i appreciate everyone taking a look at this.  it did, however, turn out to be a vlan issue.  One of our router guys figured it out.

had a similar issue, was port-channel on upstream.
