Problem associating UCS profile to an integrated C260 M2 server
I seeing an error while trying to associate a new profile with a C260 M2 into my UCS envirionment. I see that the error suggests insufficient resources or server position requirement but I'm not sure what that reffers to.
Profile status detail:
server does not fulfill
chassis/server id requirements of
the service profile
There are not enough resources overall
Assignment of service profile LGLBP012-ESXi to server failed
Yuo can usually see this when either there is a hardware failure that prevents UCSM from using the server or when you made reference to a pool that has been depleted already, like a MAC pool or WWPN pool.
If you go to the server's "General" you should see something that can give you a clue. A server healthy 100% should look like the below image, but one having a problem will tell you more about the association failure:
If I'm understanding this chart correctly, I have 1 connection between each VIC port and the FI? The connection I have is as follows:
C260 M2 > VIC1225 port 0 > 6296UP A
C260 M2 > VIC1225 port 1 > 6296UP B
That should give me 13 vNIC/vHBA each? If so I have 4 vHBA and 8 vNIC defined which fits into the maximums.
Change your boot policy, your C260-M2 doesn't support secure boot !
UEFI Secure Boot
Cisco UCS Manager supports UEFI secure boot on Cisco UCS B-Series M3 Blade Servers. When UEFI secure boot is enabled, all executables, such as boot loaders and adapter drivers,are authenticated by the BIOS before they can be loaded. To be authenticated, the images must be signed by either the Cisco Certificate Authority (CA) or a Microsoft CA.
Thanks Kenny. I looked at both the equipment general status and the profile status (screen captures attached). The equipment general status didn't really give me much more info. This C260 M2 is definitely not configured correctly in one way or another. From the profile's perspective, it's suggesting that "advanced boot or secure boot" cannot be applied. Is this option found under my SAN > policies? All compute (blade and rack) managed in this UCS are boot from SAN via FCoE to an EMC VNX 7600.
The profile I'm trying to associate with this C260 M2 stems from a profile template built for B200 M3 blades. This template is configured with 8 vNICs and 4 vHBAs.
I checked my UUID, MAC, and WWNN, and WWPN pools and they all have plenty remaining in the pool that are not assigned.
The unmanaged mode is also known as Network only switching, which is introduced in Brazos release. It adds the flexibility for customer to use only network automation for service appliance.

Usually, we can access ESXi Shell by pressing Alt+F1 from ESXi DCUI (Direct Console User Interface).
But on HyperFlex system, it just shows black window.
This is expected behavior because HyperFlex redirects ESXi Shell output to SoL...
