DCNM-SAN supporting FI

Using DCNM-SAN with UCS (2.1.2a); I created on all FC devices (MDS and N5k) a user "dcnmuser" with netadmin rights. I also created a snmp v3 user "dcnmuser" with UCSM. Then I did a fabric discovery with DCNM-SAN; I see the fabric, MDS, N5k and FI, however, the FI have a red arrow, which means not manageable.

Q. what could be wrong ? or is this really supported ?

Re: DCNM-SAN supporting FI

UCSM will discover, but can't be managed by DCNM.  Good for monitoring only.

DCNM-SAN supporting FI

Understood, thanks Robert

We only want to monitor UCS-FI with DCNM-SAN.

The release notes 6.1.2

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/6_x/dcnm/release/notes/dcnm_6_1_relnotes.html

are quite misleading:

Introduction

Cisco Data Center Network Manager combines the management of Ethernet and storage networks into a single dashboard to help network and storage administrators manage and troubleshoot health and performance across the following product families that run Cisco NX-OS software:

Cisco MDS 9500 Series Multilayer Directors and Cisco MDS 9200 and 9100 Series Multilayer Switches

Cisco Nexus 1000V Series Switches and Cisco Nexus 1010 Virtual Services Appliance

Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders

Cisco Nexus 3000, 4000, 5000, and 7000 Series Switches

Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches

Cisco UCS 6100 and 6200 Series Fabric Interconnects

Cisco FireWall Service Module (FWSM)

Cisco DCNM-SAN Release 6.1(1b) and later releases do not support Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switches and UCS devices running Cisco NX-OS Release 4.1(3) or an earlier release.

However, Table 9 Hardware Features Supported by Cisco DCNM Release 6.1

doesn't show UCS FI !
