The C460 M2 is not currently supported on the latest UCSM version. If you have 6120's with the 2248 to support the C-Series integration, can the C460 M2 be connected to this environment or will we need to wait until 2.0(2). Seems like a such a waste to devote 2248's to just LOM functions and not be able to do anything else with them.
Completely valid points. The C460 (being a completely different architecture) will only be supported with UCS MR1 aka 2.0.(2). Also in this release we enter the next phase towards single-wire management. Previously with C-Series integration we required the 2248 for 1G LOM, and 10G data path uplinks (CNA) directly to the 6100's. In 2.0(2) we add support for the 2232 - in which both LOM and Datapath connect directly to. This in turn uplinks to the 6100's. This helps reduce the # of licensed FI ports required for C-Series integration for better scaling.
We understand it's not where it needs to be yet, but this phased approach gives the functionality while allowing us to develop & test single wire data+management. Muxing Management and the datapath over a single adapter is very complex. Unlike the B Series which has the out of band CIMC controller for management.
For what it's worth, the 2248's and 2232's can always be re-used as regular FEXs for N5K and N7K if you had these in your environment.
