||Verify that empty power supply slots have filler panels installed, the faceplates of all modules are flush with the front of the chassis, and the captive screws of the power supplies, fan module, and all expansion modules are tight.|
||Verify that the power supply and the fan modules are installed. (See Replacing or Installing Power Supplies if necessary.) |
Depending on the outlet receptacle on your power distribution unit, you may need the optional jumper power cord to connect the Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnect to your outlet receptacle. See Cabinet Jumper Power Cords.
||Ensure that the chassis is adequately grounded, and that the AC or DC power available has the required power voltages (see Power Specifications). For a DC installation, see Wiring a DC Power Connector to correctly wire the DC connector before applying a DC cable.|
||For a first-time installation, you will need to work with your network manager to determine the following parameters: |
Password for the admin account. Choose a strong password that meets the guidelines for Cisco UCS Manager passwords. This password can not be blank.
Management port IP address and subnet mask
Default gateway IP address
DNS server IP address (optional)
Domain name for the system (optional)
||Connect a PC or laptop directly to the console port of the primary or standalone fabric interconnect. In a cluster configuration, the primary will be the fabric interconnect that powers up first. The console port on the terminal should be set to 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit.|
||If the fabric interconnect will be running in a cluster with another fabric interconnect, you will need to connect ethernet cables between the L1 and L2 ports. Port L1 on fabric interconnect A connects to L1 on fabric interconnect B, and Port L2 on fabric interconnect A connects to L2 on fabric interconnect B. If the fabric interconnect and the UCS instance will be in standalone mode this will not be necessary.|
||Connect the power cable to a power source. The system should power on as soon as you connect the AC power cable or DC power connector.|
||Listen for the fans; they should begin operating when you plug in the power cable.|
||After the system boots, verify that the LED operation is as follows: |
Fan module—Status LED is green.
Power supply—Status LED is green.
After initialization, the system status LED is green, indicating that all chassis environmental monitors are reporting that the system is operational. If this LED is orange or red, one or more environmental monitor is reporting a problem.
The Link LEDs for the Ethernet connector should not be on unless the cable is connected.
The link LEDs for the Fibre Channel ports remain yellow until the ports are enabled, and the LED for the Ethernet connector port remains off until the port is connected.
||Try removing and reinstalling a component that is not operating correctly. If it still does not operate correctly, contact your customer service representative for a replacement.
||Verify that the system software has booted and that the system has initialized without error messages. |
If any problems occur, see Troubleshooting Hardware Components. If you cannot resolve an issue, contact your customer service representative.
||Complete the worksheets provided in Site Planning and Maintenance Records for future reference.|
||Configure the primary fabric interconnect as described inthe
Configuration Guide for the version of Cisco UCS Manager
that you are using. The configuration guides are
available at the following
||Power up, connect the terminal to the console port, and configure the secondary fabric interconnect as described in the Cisco UCS Manager Configuration Guide. |
