Q1.  You can create a new bloock of addresses in the pool ext-mgmt or you can delete that pool and create a new pool of a larger size.  Don't worry all the old IP addresses will go back to the same server and you will not lose access to the existing.

Q2.  Yes you can.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks , I have some additional questions.

Q1- Will the Server/SP automatically pool IP address from the new IPv4 Range if created.

Q3

Added 1 Chassis with 8 Blades for QA Environment to an existing UCS Setup with 4 Chassis/20 Blades. If I Plan to use the existing setup with regards to Storage, Do I need to do anything specific on the SAN Tab option for the new 8 Blades for a Seprate QA Environment setup?

Q1, it will continue to takes IP's from the existing block once full it will take them from the next block.

Q3. Short answer no, long answers depends on a few questions about your setup. Lets assume your using the same storage array and same protocol (FC or iSCSI) then no, if a different array or protocol then yes you may need to make changes.

In general thats the beauty of UCS Domains is that I can add chassis after chassis (20) and I dont have to change anything northbound and I can re-use polices and profiles as well as templates.
