What is the difference between the VIC 1240 with Expander and the VIC 1280?

Hi Niles, Before all thanks

Hi Niles,

 

Before all thanks for the help...

 

I am about to add new blade into our current Chassis... Is there some "gotchas" that I need to be carefully about?

 

Thanks

Hello Jean,Thanks for

Hello Jean,

Thanks for participating in our support community.  We truly appreciate it!

Q.  I am about to add new blade into our current Chassis... Is there some "gotchas" that I need to be carefully about?

A.  No there isn't.  UCS will discover the the blade when inserted into the chassis.  One thing to be cognizant of is that, new blade will most likely come with a different firmware or newer firmware.  That's not an issue because you can auto sync the firmware, upgrade firmware on blade directly, or use a host firmware package.  In the later option, you can set your Service Profile policy to downgrade/upgrade the firmware on the blade during association to meet your environment.

Here is the documentation of how to do this:

It should be just that easy.  If anything weird happen, you may want to have TAC look at it.

HTH,

/Niles
