Summary:

TITV is an open source project aimed to help you to document your UCS system. TITV consists of a script which collects information from the UCSM via the API. The script parses the XML data and then writes the data to a report. The report consists of multiple excel files.

The report output in the excel files isn’t pretty, but fully captures the system configuration and can be reviewed or linked to for documentation purposes.

The script is an HTML application that is executed by “Microsoft HTML Application Host” which will be on your workstation by default. All code is fully viewable for review.

Current version: v.15

Features:

  • Single GUI for generating reports
  • Captures most configuration settings of UCS system
  • Compiles UCSM configuration details in sectioned excel files, Server, Lan, San, etc…
  • Ability to spool reports by hardware

o   All hardware or specific FI’s or Chassis

  • Ability to spool reports by specific org unit(s)
  • Ability to spool reports to “Detailed Naming” or “Link compatible naming” reports

How to use:

  1. Open TITV-EXC.hta file
  2. Select directory where report files will be placed
  3. Enter URL (http://IP), Admin, Password for UCSM system
  4. Click “Connect” to connect the script to the UCSM
  5. Select either “Hardware” or “Organizations”
    1. Hardware: Select hardware; Fabric Interconnects, Chassis, or Rackmount servers
    2. Organizations: Select relevant org units
  6. Select “Detailed Naming” or “Link compatible Naming”
    1. Detailed Naming: The report files and excel tabs are detailed, actually reflecting the object name.
    2. Link compatible Naming: The report files and excel tabs are generic and sequential. The name and excel tabs are the same at each report run.
      1. This feature is to allow for excel linking for consistent linking between reports.
  7. Select “Generate Report”
  8. Give report “multiple minutes” to complete. It can take a while depending on how much data/link speed present.

    Current version: v.20

    To Download: http://sourceforge.net/projects/titv/files/TITV-EXC-v.20.hta/download

    Warning: The script needs a clean instance of Excel to run. So basically kills any open excel windows when you generate reports. You should save and close any open excel windows prior to running reports.

    Changes:

    • Added “Admin” option for report of “Admin” UCSM tab objects such as:

    o   User Management

    §  Authentication

    §  LDAP

    §  Radius

    §  TACACs+

    §  User Services

    • Locales
    • Locally Authenticated Users
    • Remotely Authenticated Users
    • Roles

    o   Communication Management

    §  Call Home

    §  Communication Services

    §  DNS Management

    §  Management IP Pools

    o   Management Interfaces

    o   TimeZone Management

    o   License Management

    • Renamed GUI  “Hardware” to “Equipment” to match UCSM

    TITV Cisco Unified Compute System Parser

    Problem: Source forge breaks the script when the script is natively uploaded to site.

    Broken script would not accept valid URL/User/Pass

    I have re-uploaded the exact same script, but in zip format and tested it.

    Please make sure you have excel running on the workstation you are running the script on. It requires it to generate the reports. It has been tested with excel version 2007-2010.

    New valid version for v.20
