UCS Design Query

Hi,

I have one Cisco UCS chassis with two fabric extenders & one fabric interconnect.

Can we connect two fabric extenders (2208XP) with one fabric Interconnects?

Will this provide redundancy to the blade servers If one extender fails?

I know I am missing one fabric interconnect here but now I have only these components.

Regards,

Anser

Hello Muhammad,

No, the fabric extenders may only be connected to a single FI.  Redudancy can only be achieved with two Fabric Interconnects.

Can we install Windows Server OS directly on the blade server without VMware?

Hi Anser,

yes you can install the windows OS directly on the blade with no VMWare needed.

Any OS listed under the supported OS section in the following URL can be installed directly on the blades:
