Introduction

This release note discusses the features, and open caveats for the following products:

  • Cisco UCS Server Configuration Utility
  • Cisco Driver Update Utility

Cisco UCS Server Configuration Utility

The Cisco UCS Server Configuration Utility (UCS SCU) is an application that helps you easily set up and manage your servers from a single application. UCS SCU reduces the complexity and time associated with setting up and maintaining Cisco C-series servers. Server deployment time is made easier. It guides you through questions to help quickly configure the server through automatic recognition of server hardware, with minimal reboots and an automated unattended operating system installation.

With UCS-SCU, you can perform the following:

  • Upgrade, troubleshoot, and configure UCS C-Series server
  • View server inventory.
  • Configure RAID volumes on attached hard drives
  • Install an operating system using one of the following options:

Quick install - Install an operating system with default settings

Custom install - Modify the default settings prior to installing an operating system.

  • Perform interactive offline diagnostics
  • View server health and logs.

For more information on performing these tasks, see the Cisco UCS Server Configuration Utility User Guide, Release 3.1(3) .

Cisco Driver Update Utility

The Cisco Driver Update Utility enables you to install or update drivers for all Cisco supported devices.

With Cisco Driver Update Utility, you can perform the following:

  • Install driver updates individually or collectively
  • Install driver updates from the Cisco Flexible Flash card, network or from http://www.cisco.com .

For more information on performing these tasks, see the Cisco Driver Update Utility, Release 3.1(2) User Guide .

There are situations when the KVM Linux mouse emulation gets out of sync with the host's mouse: Novell/SUSE's install DVD for SLES doesn't include mouse acceleration. The X setup for the install DVD is very basic, unlike RHEL's. A mouse will work on SLES once it is installed but lags during the installation.On Linux, you can switch between graphical and text mod using the Ctrl-Alt-F1 for text and Ctrl-Alt-F7 to go back to graphical mode. The KVM Linux mouse emulation sometimes gets out of sync when switching between modes.

Workaround When the mouse gets out of sync in Linux, the user must force KVM to recalculate it. There are two ways to force KVM to recalculate the Linux mouse: 1) In KVM, go to the Tools->Session Options->Mouse tab and press the button for Linux Mouse Acceleration and then press "Apply" and "OK". If the Linux Mouse Acceleration is already selected, the user can still press "Apply" and then "OK" to force it to recalculate. 2) Move the mouse out of the KVM window to the right of the window and back into the KVM window, forcing it to recalculate the mouse position again.
