This appendix includes the following sections:

Linux Installation Drivers

The required installation drivers and detailed driver information is available on the Cisco UCS C-Series Drivers DVD.


Note


The Cisco UCS C-Series Drivers DVD ISO image is available from the Cisco.com support site under Unified Computing and Servers > Cisco UCS Rack-Mount Standalone Server Software > server_model Server Software > Unified Computing System (UCS) Drivers .

To view the list of available server models, go to the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html?mdfid=283612685&flowid=26802.


The drivers are organized into top-level folders by operating system, and each operating system folder has a hierarchically structured series of subfolders that become increasing specific so that you can find the exact drivers you need. When you navigate to a folder that contains drivers, it will also contain one or more README files that describes what those particular drivers are used for.

An example of the folder structure for Linux follows:

Linux
   ChipSet
      Intel
         RHEL
            OS-version-number
         SLES
            OS-version-number
   Network
      vendor
         model-number
            RHEL
               OS-version-number
            SLES
               OS-version-number
   Security
      TPM
         RHEL
            OS-version-number
         SLES
            OS-version-number
   Storage
      vendor
         model-number
            RHEL
               OS-version-number
            SLES
               OS-version-number
   Video
      vendor
         model-number
            RHEL
               OS-version-number
            SLES
               OS-version-number

For example, the RHEL6.2 drivers for the Cisco UCS M81KR Virtual Interface Card can be found in the folder Linux/Network/Cisco/M81KR/RHEL/RHEL6.2.
