Service profiles auto association

Hi, if a server goes down, is it possible to configure the service profile for moving automatically to another server from the servers pool?

No.  UCS will not do automation like this.  The reason is because its a tough call to determine what qualifies a server as "being down" - loss of networking, loss of management, loss of power, OS crash etc  We wouldn't want UCSM moving around hosts unless certain criteria were met.   This has been heavily discussed internally and it was decided that UCSM would not touch SP movement pertaining to host failures.

There are other management Apps that can handle the orchestration piece like this - which tie into UCSM very nicely via the XML API.

Robert

Hi,

If we use server pool and associate service profile tremplate with server pool?  if one of blades fails, I understand that, service profile will associate to another spare blade from server pool.
