C460-M2 with 2 VIC-1225, managed by UCSM

C460-M2 with 2 VIC-1225; all documents show only one VIC-1225 (which has to be in PCI slot nr.1)  single wire managment with a UCS FI ?

Is this a limitation ? or must the second VIC-1225 be connected to a switch outside the FI ?

C460-M2 with 2 VIC-1225, managed by UCSM

Hello Walter,

- C460 M2 supports one or two 2nd Gen VICs when integrated with UCSM.

- VIC in Slot 1 will handle Management and Data traffic.

- If there’s a second VIC installed in Slot 2, it will be used for Data traffic only.  This is due to the standby power supplied only to slot1

C460 M2 supports two VIC cards

I will follow up to get spec sheet of 460 and UCSM integration to reflect it.

I received the following answer

Good question Walter. The documentation is confusing. If running the C460 as part of a UCS integration, only 1 card is supported.Although the server supports 2 cards , slot 1 & 2 according to the specsheet. The datasheet states that upto 3 VIC can be supoprted int he server.

The Cisco CCW config tool allows you to configure 2 VIC1225 in the C460.

From the 460 spechseet.

The C460 server accommodates the Cisco 1225 Virtual Interface card, which is supported only in slots 1 and 2. Note, however, that if the server is running UCSM, only slot 1 is supported for the VIC card.

■ The Cisco Card NIC mode is currently supported only with a Cisco 1225 VIC (UCSC-PCIE-CSC-02) that is installed in PCIe slot 1.

■ The C460 server accommodates the Cisco 1225 Virtual Interface card, which is supported only in slots 1 and 2. Note, however, that if the server is running UCSM, only slot 1 is supported for the VIC card.

System Requirements

#

The Cisco UCS VIC 1225 is designed for use only on Cisco UCS C-Series Rack Servers. A single Cisco UCS VIC 1225 is supported on Cisco UCS C260 M2, C460 M2, C220 M3, C240 M3, C22 M3, and C24 M3 rack servers. Up to three Cisco UCS VIC 1225 cards are supported on these servers depending on the slot configuration.

Anyone at Cisco want to clarify the above?

Received this from a Cisco internal source

Multiple VICs are supported in UCSM managed C-Series. There is some confilct 
in the documentation but this is being resolved. For platforms that support 
multiple VICs (e.g. C240). UCSM integration supports multiple VICs. However 
all ports on the VICs must be connected to the FEX.
 
Can someone confirm this ! it's becoming really urgent !
Thanks
Walter.

Couple of questions for the not-so-FCoE route:

1) Any roadmap for 40G NIC Ethernet card for the UCS C series?

2) Any 16G FC card for the UCS C series?

Thanks.

Opsource,

Roadmap discussions sould be handled through your Cisco account team as we do not publish/post this information in public forums.
