Cisco UCS Platform Emulator, Release 3.0(1cPE1)

The UCS Platform Emulator version 3.0(1cPE1) is a platform release that ONLY supports the 6324 Fabric Interconnect based domains.  No other Fabric Interconnect (6100 / 6200) will work with this UCSPE.

New Hardware Features

Cisco UCS Platform Emulator, Release 3.0(1cPE1), adds support for the following new hardware:

  • Fabric Interconnect IOM: UCS-FI-M-6324
  • Chassis: UCSB-5108-AC2 and UCSB-5108-DC2

Known Limitations

  • Cisco UCS Platform Emulator, Release 3.0(1cPE1) has the following limitations:
  • In the UCSM component topology, the link between the rack server and FI is shown as down.
  • While importing with the ‘Live Import’ feature, adapters other than Lexington do not get imported.
  • Firmware version of components in UCSPE is not visible on the Cisco UCS Central.
  • Disconnecting of the servers by unconfiguring their server ports does not impact the server state.
  • We recommended that you check the imported configuration on the Control Panel to ensure there are no missing components or unsupported components. Unsupported or missing components can impact discovery and it is out of the limitation of the UCSPE catalog that such a scenario can occur. We suggest you delete the unsupported components and add the component manually on the Control Panel. Occasionally, import of rack servers might fail.
  • Live import of the configuration is possible only with the UCS Mini and not with other versions of the Cisco UCS Manager.

NOTE: From UCS PE 2.2(1bPE1) onwards, UCS PE supports uploading the B-Series and C-Series server firmware bundles.  Because of the large file sizes of the firmware bundles, UCS PE only supports uploading of only the stripped-down versions (attached to this document), which includes only the firmware metadata but not the actual firmware itself in the binaries.  The stripped-down version of the firwmare bundles which contain metadata only of the B-series and C-series server firmware is reduced to approximately 50 kB in size.

Hi,

Are you facing this issue when you try to launch UCSM for the first time after installing it? Kindly perform a factory reset and try to launch UCSM. If the issue still exists, please let us know.

Hi,

Did you make any changes on the hardware config? Is the issue persisting? If yes, perform a factory reset and try launching gui. If gui does not open, let us know.

I am unable to download the file, have tired a few times on different networks stops randomly at 70 mb 120 and sometimes and 370mb. Is their a problem with the site ?

Community Member

Tried many times to download it stops at 205meg , 20 meg or times out long before its done. Is there a problem with the site or can the file be hosted at a more reliable or more accessible location. Thanks for making it available and taking the time to upload it.

For what it's worth, I downloaded both the zip and ova on my home broadband... about 1.2MB/sec between them... no errors or timeouts. I unzipped the zip file and imported it into VMware Workstation. It's unpacking and installing now. So it does appear that the Cisco site and zip file are working normally.

Hello friends,
