I have two servers UCS C220M3, the CIMC Interface is configured as Dedicated Nic Mode.
From what I have read, the default for the interface on this case is to work in speed 100 duplex Full.
I'd like to check if the interface is really working as 100/Full, but in the CIMC Web Network Settings and CIMC Configuration Utility does not have the option of changing the Port Properties (attached print screens). According to the cisco documentation, it was supposed to have the Port Properties options.
All this needed have started because we've been having some network problem with the CIMC connection. The port is intermittent and logging this error: SYS-3-PORT_IN_ERRORS: Port [dec]/[dec] detected [dec] input error(s) in last 30 minutes. We have already changed the cables and the switch port is configured as 100/Full. It's just missing to check the CIMC Port Properties.
I'm not able to find a way to take a look at the duplex settings in the older version. I assume you've tried all of the basics like a new network cable and maybe a different port on the switch you're attached to?
You might also try changing the NIC mode to Shared LOM if it's a new deployment or you're not using those ports currently.
I just went through this upgrade and it was pretty painless.
Yes, the upgrade is pretty easy to do, I have done in other two servers successfully. But when I start doing this on these other two servers, the network goes down and I lost access.
Yes, we have changed the network cable, but we are unable to change the switch port. However, I don't think it's a problem with the port on the switch, because the same issue has been happening with two different servers. Both are in the same CIMC version.
I have found a Cisco Procedure (attached) on How to Configuring Interface Properties and there is an option of changing the Duplex settings (page 13). Do you know if this is a valid option for this CIMC version that I am using?
Are you getting this error “Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported. The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the -i command-line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The value UI mode identifiers...
The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
