C210 M2 with FI 6248

Hi All,

With the 6248's, is it possible to connect a C210 M2 directly to one of the ports or does it still need a Nexus 2k?

Thanks

Kassim

Kassim,

We still need Fabric Extender for rack servers to be managed by UCSM.

Hi Padma,

Thanks for the reply.

If i dont want UCSM to manage it but use it primarily as a "storage server" with windows or a linux distro, would i still need the fabric extender or can i just use the appliance ports for that?

Thanks

Kassim,

This is similar to this thread

https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2135410?tstart=0

If we re-configure UCS rack server to function as storage server and configure FI port as appliance port, it might work but is not officially supported.

Thanks Padma,

i will read up on that thread. Does it apply to both 6100 & 6200 FI's?

Hello Kassim,

Yes, it applies to both 6100 and 6200 FI models.
