The update is not applicable to your computerThe reason is the version of mpio.sys and msdsm.sys on your server is higher than 6.3.9600.17809. Usually, because the server installed KB3121261 already. You can ignore KB3046101.
You may need only 1 IP address for blade console in Cisco UCS Manager. You can follow Understanding “Management IP” of Cisco UCS Manager to configure it. You may see warning “Vlan ‘xxx’ resolved to unsupported VLAN ID” when you delete existing inbound and outbound IP pools if you are trying to clean up existing management IP pools.
That’s because inbound IP address for blade is not cleaned. You have to go to “Equipment” -> “Chassis” -> Target chassis -> “Servers” -> Target server -> Go to “Inventory” tab -> “CIMC” tab -> Click “Change Inbound Management IP” -> Remove existing VLAN and IP pool.
You will see inband IP tab is blank once it’s saved. Please note, the IP address reassign back after 1 minute if you clicked “Delete Inband Configuration” instead of “Change Inbound Managemnt IP“.
Benefit of using Inbound Management IP Address for Cisco UCS Blades is it’s faster than outbound. But how to configure it?
IP address for KVM in Cisco UCS Manager is different with HPE servers. It may assign multiple IP addresses to same blade if you don’t configure it properly. In my case each blade gets 3 IP addresses!
There are actually 3 types of IP address for KVM. (Cisco manual says 2):
- Outbound Management IPs.
- Inbound Management IPs for Blades.
- Inbound Management IPs for Service Profiles.
“Outbound Management IP” is default for KVM. Every new deployed blade will try to get a DHCP IP address over Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnect management port in same VLAN.
The confusion is the 2nd and 3rd IPs. “Inbound Management IPs for Blades” is from “hardware” perspective. “Inbound Management IPs for Service Profiles” is from “logical” perspective.
If you go to Equipment -> Chassis -> blade -> Click the KVM to go console. You get console over either Outbound Management IP or Inbound Management IPs for Blades.
If you go to Servers -> Service Profiles -> Click the KVM of a service profile. You get console over either Outbound Management IP or Inbound Management IPs for Service Profiles.
If you want to configure just 1 IP for a blade whatever it’s for hardware or service profile. You need to do following:
- Delete the range of the default ext-mgmt in IP Pools of LAN node in Cisco UCS Manager.
- Create a new inbound IP pool and a VLAN group without uplink.
- Choose the VLAN and inbound IP pool in LAN Cloud -> Global Policies -> Inbound Profile.
- Assign the VLAN and inbound IP pool to templates or service profile.
Refer to Setting the Management IP Address of Cisco UCS Manager manual for detail.
BTW, you may see Vlan ‘xxx’ resolved to unsupported VLAN ID in Cisco UCS Manager when you clean up existing IP pool and create new inbound pool.
I usually document my scripts in OneNote. It would be perfect if OneNote 2016 can highlight scripts. I found a nice plugin call “NoteHighlight2016” for OneNote 2016. It’s not only for 32 bit but also for 64 bit. You can download it in Github.
The default codes are C#, SQL, CSS, JS, HTML, XML, JAVA, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby, and CPP. But you can change the settings to show more or less in riboon.xml in the installation folder.
