UCS replicating tamplate / service profile

Hello Experts

I have about 50 datacenters deployed with Cisco UCS

All datacenter have the same exec hardware and using the same UUID pools same MACs

the only diffrence between them is the IP scheme

I want to create a new template or service profile for only one of the B200 Blades and inject it to each one of my datacenters

I have tried to do it with command line script but not much luck

I am familiar with the backup and restore options but I am unable to export only one of the service profile only all of them

Is what I am asking possible ?

Thanks ahead and best wishes

Re: UCS replicating tamplate / service profile


Couple of comments - I would use extreme caution when using duplicate MACs.   If you ever have to interconnect your DCs you're going to be in a mess of trouble.  Since you can craft your own MACs people will normally use one octect to designate the "site".

Ex. 00:25:B5:AA:BB:BB

00:25:B5 = Cisco's OUI

AA = Site ID

BB:BB = Unique Identifier

You should be able to use a Power shell script to inject the new profile to each of your UCSM domains.

Jeremy Waldrop has done a great job utlizing this.  Check out his blog.  He's put together an incredible PowerShell script you should be able to re-use with some slight modifications.

You'll also find some great reference commands in the Quick Start guide:
