Cisco UCS Blades and vSphere DPM

I followed this guide:

https://supportforums.cisco.com/docs/DOC-8582

And it worked, but I have 2 problems.

1) The blade being put into Standby starts back up immediately - almost like a reboot -

and doesn't stay in Standby mode

2) The Blade being put into Standby mode has Faults on all vFabric's etc because it is

"off"

Any suggestions?

Your issue is likely you have Power Management within the DRS  settings enabled.  If there's limited hosts, vCenter will immeidately  re-power up a host put into standby.  This is expected behavior for vCenter protecting the cluster.

Test - Disable DRS on your cluster, and then put a host into standby.  It should stay down indefinately.

Sorry...not the case.  We have 10 Blades and they are highly under utilized. Plus, DPM is in Manual mode right now.

I am testing and have not done a successful test...in other words, I have not been able to "Power On" because it won't stay down.
