We have Cisco UCS C220 M3 with VIC 1225 card installed. We connected only one 10G port of VIC 1225 to Nexus 5548UP switch. But I do not see this port on switch and in CIMI the status for this port shows Link Down. I wanted to to iSCSI boot from storage NetApp FAS2240 but since I don't see this port on my Nexus switch I am unable to do boot from NetApp. I tried both ports on VIC 1225 with same result. Please I need help in this matter. I know I am missing something very simple but can't figure this out.
You are right the VIC 1225 is installed in PCIe1 slot not mazzinine. I mixed that up in my explaination above. PCIe1 was disable in the BIOS. My VIC card is up and UCS login into ISCSI with NetApp storage. So it is working fine. Thanks.
The new problem I have now is when I installed Windows 2008 Enterprise R2 via KVM I do not see my partition. I see NetApp in the UCS BIOS with Boot option 1. My NetApp LUN ID is 0 and I configured ISCSI with LUN ID 0 on vNIC ISCSI as well.
Do you have any idea why windows not see the partition drive during installation
You are trying to see the local disks during the installation? If yes, please be sure you are looading the drivers for the RAID controller so your installer can communicate with the hardware properly and then show the disks.
To see the drives for a windows install you will need to mount the drivers ISO (avalible from cisco.com), choose the Intel C600 folder from the mounted ISO and then scan the drives for install. See the attached screenshots (just select the proper Windows version):
Let me know if that is not what you needed.
Note: Don't forget to mark your question as answered if it is, so other future users see that you found the solution you were looking for.
