How to find out in GUI if my blade has a sd card or not.

Hi .. am doing a remote installation of UCS with onsite support---- the blades are shipped with the sd cards but the team cannot see in from the front view.

Where exactly will this sd card be located and how to verify the same in UCSM 2.1(3a).

Thanks.

How to find out in GUI if my blade has a sd card or not.

Hi Shyam,

This one of Limitations with the FlexFlash in UCSM. No the case for C-Series server.

Please check the following link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/unified_computing/ucs/sw/gui/config/guide/2.1/b_UCSM_GUI_Configuration_Guide_2_1_chapter_0110001.html

The following are the known limitations related to FlexFlash SD cards in this release of Cisco UCS Manager:

1. Cisco UCS hardware information and inventory data about the controller and SD cards is not collected.

2. Monitoring of the controller and SD card status or health is not supported. In the case of a failure of a FlexFlash controller or SD card, no faults or errors will be displayed in Cisco UCS Manager.

3. Formatting of the SD cards is not supported.

4. Booting from SD cards using the Cisco UCS Manager Boot Policy is not supported.

Shyam,

You need to remove the blade to see the card(s), they are on one of the sides of the blade.
