CISCO_UCS Configuration Syntax

The CISCO_UCS Configuration is used to add Cisco Unified Computing Systems for monitoring.

SUBSYS CISCO_UCS

ADD UCSB (<device-name>, ip=<ipaddress>)
DEFINE SNMP_PROFILE (<device-name>[, port=<port>][, version={1|2c|3}][, authentication={YES|NO}][, authProtocol={MD5|SHA}][, encryption={YES|NO}][, encryptionProtocol={DES|3DES|AES|AES128|AES192|AES256}])

ADD UCSC (<device-name>, ip=<ipaddress>)
DEFINE CLI_PROFILE (<device-name> [, mode=<mode>][, port=<port>][, connectdurationmins=<mins>])

Syntax Elements

ADD UCSB

<device-name>

Name of the UCS B-Series system

ip=<ip-address>

IP Address of the CiscoUCS Manager associated with the B-Series system

DEFINE SNMP PROFILE (Optional)

Use the DEFINE SNMP_PROFILE statement to add details of the SNMP connection that is to be used. The SNMP connection is used to collect all UCS B-Series data (not for UCS C-Series)

<device-name>

Name of the UCS B-Series system.

port=<port>

SNMP port on the device (default=161).

version={1|2c|3}

SNMP version available on the device, either 1, 2c or 3. (default=2c)

authentication={YES|NO}

Indicates whether SNMP authentication is required (default=NO).

authProtocol={MD5|SHA}

SNMP authentication protocol. Options are; MD5 or SHA.

encryption={YES|NO}

Indicates whether SNMP encryption is required (default=NO). Encryption is not available without authentication.

encryptionProtocol=

SNMP encryption protocol. Options are; DES, 3DES, AES, AES128, AES192, AES256. This only applies if the encryption statement has been enabled.

ADD UCSC

 <device-name>

Logical name of the UCS C-Series system

ip=<ipaddress>

IP Address of the Cisco Integrated Management Controller (CIMC) associated with the C-Series system

DEFINE CLI_PROFILE (Optional)

Use the DEFINE CLI_PROFILE statement to add details of the CLI connection that is to be used. The CLI connection is used to collect all UCS C-Series data (not for UCS B-Series)

 <device-name>

Logical name of the UCS C-Series system

mode=<mode>

CLI connection mode - SSH or Telnet (default is SSH)

port=<port>

CLI connection port on the UCS (default is 22 for SSH or 23 for Telnet)

connectdurationmins=<mins>

The maximum length of time that the CLI connection on UCS will be kept open (default is 60mins)

Example:

SUBSYS CISCO_UCS

ADD UCSB (UCSB1, ip=10.118.19.7)
DEFINE SNMP_PROFILE (UCSB1, port=161, version=3, authentication=YES, authProtocol=MD5, encryption=YES, encryptionProtocol=DES)

ADD UCSC (UCS1, ip=10.118.10.5)
DEFINE CLI_PROFILE(UCS1, mode=telnet)
The username and passwords for SNMP authentication and encryption have to be set in the PASSWORDS Configuration for Cisco UCS B-Series.
