I am having trouble to integrate the new C240 M4 server into UCSM. It just will not be discovered by UCSM, or just stuck at 9% to 12 % in FSM. I did all the re-set to factory default, power drain, but still have a hard time to let UCSM discover the rack mount server.
What firmware is your UCSM running? UCSM firmware must be at least 2.2(3a)
How are you connecting this server, through a pair of FEXes or directly to the Fabric Interconnects?
What adapter model are you using for the integration, VIC 1225 or VIC 1227 (note that of you have both you must integrate the server with the 1227, if you only have the 1225 make sure it is install in slot 2 of this C240 M4 server.
Let me know if this helps
Did you check the prerequisites for the integration in
- PCIe slot for VIC-1225 Cisco UCS C240 M4 Server slot nr 2
- CIMC / BIOS
I have faced the same issue. I have VIC 1227 SFP+. Now i have updated the both UCSM and Rack Server Firmware. 1 Server got discovered. Still working on other 3 servers.
If you are facing issues integrating your rack servers, the first step you should try is deploying them in standalone, resetting to factory defaults, running the HUU on the server based on what version of firmware you will be running within UCSM, reset to factory defaults once again, and then attempt integration.
Usually the steps above will work out any issues with discovery, as long as all other pre-requisites are met.
To piggy back off of Wes Response, Below is a good step by step guide created to help you through the process of not being able to integrate the server.

If you are getting stuck at 9%, please check your Rack Management Connectivity policy. If it's set to user ack, then it's expecting you to go to the partially discovered server's Inventory tab, CIMC, and click on configure management Connection. Set this to 'Sideband'.
Also just changing the policy to auto ack should get you past the 9%, if this is the issue you are hitting.
