UCS & FlexPod for VMware

Hey folks,

I hope all is well. Recently I attended a lunch and learn on FlexPod for VMware. This product can be a pay-as-you go cloud solution and brings out the best in Cisco UCS, NetApp & VMware. Please take a look and make sure that your UCS can be all it can be.

LDAP in UCS firmware version 1.4.1


I found this article on LDAP integration in firmware version 1.4.1.. I tried it in my lab and it worked just fine. I used ADSI edit to pull out the needed DN info and I created all the groups contained in the article. I tested all items and it worked great.

ADSI edit info pulled in my lab:

a. BaseDN   DC=omat,DC=tec,DC=msi
b. BindDN:CN=ucs user,OU=Service Accounts,DC=omat,DC=tec,DC=msi
c. Bind password:  Nbv12345
d. Filter: sAMAccountName=$userid
e. Roles:
ucsaaa       CN=ucsaa,OU=UCSGroups,DC=omat,DC=tec,DC=msi
ucsadmin     CN=ucsadmin,OU=UCSGroups,DC=omat,DC=tec,DC=msi
ucsnetwork   CN=ucsnetwork,OU=UCSGroups,DC=omat,DC=tec,DC=msi
ucsoperation CN=ucsoperation,OU=UCSGroups,DC=omat,DC=tec,DC=msi
ucssecurity  CN=ucssecurity,OU=UCSGroups,DC=omat,DC=tec,DC=msi
ucsstorage   CN=ucsstorage,OU=UCSGroups,DC=omat,DC=tec,DC=msi
