Now I have UCS C220 M3s servers, new installation.the factory defualt CIMC version on my servers is 1.4.7b..
i made RAID on all my UCS servers, succeeded. and then i upgraded the CIMC and the BIOS version using huu 1.5.1b.
but after the upgrade, my CIMC can not open the KVM console(when click the launch KVM buttom,no error message but just can not open it. my PC is with java 1.7) , and via the CIMC GUI, i found that in the "GUI > storage> cisco flex flash", it was saying "invalid RAID ( ord firmware running). after I clicked" reset the flexflash contorller" , the error is "degraded RAID" now.
Then I tried to upgrade the RAID card (9266-8i) using huu 1.5.1b, the issue is still there.
so now two problems:
1. can not open KVM console on CIMC 1.5.1b, restared the CIMC, still can not open.
2. RAID error.
3. when access the CIMC web ,sometimes it shows "unexpected error"
anyone have some ideas on these ?? thanks very much !!!
What is happening is that the JNLP (Java Network Launch Protocol) files are being downloaded to the PC but they are not triggering the java application to open as it is not associated to it.
To resolve this issue you need to associate you .jnlp files with Java Web Start application.
On a MAC you need to perform the following steps.
•1. After clicking on the KVM icon in the UCS CIMC, locate the jnlp file on your PC. It will look something like this:
As you can see the file typically has the ip address of the Cisco UCS. In my example my PC saves these files to my Downloads folder based on the preferences in my browser.
•2. Once the file is located simply right click the file and choose “Open With” and then select “Other” option.
3. This will open another window where you can select the “Java WebStart.app” file to these jnlp files.
You should now be able to launch the KVM now.
4. If you are still having an issue right click the jnlp file and select the “Get Info” option.
5. This will open another window where you can then select “Open With.” At this point you can follow step 3.
On a windows based PC the issue is the same. The Java JNLP files run in the Java Web Start application which is included with the Java install.
In Windows 2008, click “Start” and navigate to Control Panel ==> Java. This will open a new window.
Select the Advanced tab at the top of the Java Control Panel.
3. Ensure that the “Java Plug-in” is enabled. (Reload the browser if needed)
4. Expand “JNLP File/MIME Association” and check that “Always allow” or “Prompt user” is selected. If not, make the change and Reload the browser.
You should be able to run your KVM now.
Also you can open the file with the Javaws.exe program
Hope this helps with your KVM issue
