Discovering Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS)-HD devices

Discovery identifies and classifies information about Cisco UCS equipment, including chassis and blades.

Credentials

Configure both SNMP and Applicative credentials.

Classifier, pattern, and OIDs

The UCS classifier uses HorzontalDiscoveryProbe to launch the UCS - HD pattern. The classifier also uses these SNMP OIDs, which specify the Cisco UCS Equipment [cmdb_ci_ucs_equipment] table:

OID Manufacturer Model Table
1.3.6.1.4.1.9.12.3.1.3.847 Unified Computing Cisco UCS 6120XP 20-Port Fabric Interconnect 1.4(3u)(NX-OS) 5.0 Aggregation Switch Cisco UCS Equipment
1.3.6.1.4.1.9.12.3.1.3.899 Unified Computing Cisco UCS 6140XP 40-Port Fabric Interconnect 1.4(3u)(NX-OS) 5.0 Aggregation Switch Cisco UCS Equipment
1.3.6.1.4.1.9.12.3.1.3.1062 Unified Computing Cisco UCS 6248UP 48-Port Fabric Interconnect 2.0(1t)(NX-OS) 5.0.2 Aggregation Switch Cisco UCS Equipment
1.3.6.1.4.1.9.12.3.1.3.1063 Unified Computing Cisco UCS 6296UP 96-Port Fabric Interconnect 2.0(1t)(NX-OS) 5.0.2 Aggregation Switch Cisco UCS Equipment

Data collected

Only B-series devices are discovered. The UCS - HD pattern does not find C, S, or E series devices.
