Configuring Server-Related Policies

This chapter includes the following sections:

Server Autoconfiguration Policy Configuration

Server Autoconfiguration Policy

This policy determines whether one or more of the following is automatically applied to a new server:


  • A server pool policy qualification that qualifies the server for one or more server pools

  • An organization

  • A service profile template that associates the server with a service profile created from that template

Configuring a Server Autoconfiguration Policy

Procedure
  Command or Action Purpose

Boot Policy Configuration

Boot Policy

The boot policy determines the following:


  • Configuration of the boot device

  • Location from which the server boots

  • Order in which boot devices are invoked

For example, you can choose to have associated servers boot from a local device, such as a local disk or CD-ROM (VMedia), or you can select a SAN boot or a LAN (PXE) boot.

You must include this policy in a service profile, and that service profile must be associated with a server for it to take effect. If you do not include a boot policy in a service profile, the server uses the default settings in the BIOS to determine the boot order.

Important:

Changes to a boot policy may be propagated to all servers created with an updating service profile template that includes that boot policy. Reassociation of the service profile with the server to rewrite the boot order information in the BIOS is auto-triggered.

Guidelines

When you create a boot policy, you can add one or more of the following to the boot policy and specify their boot order:

Boot type

Description

SAN boot

Boots from an operating system image on the SAN. You can specify a primary and a secondary SAN boot. If the primary boot fails, the server attempts to boot from the secondary.

We recommend that you use a SAN boot, because it offers the most service profile mobility within the system. If you boot from the SAN, when you move a service profile from one server to another, the new server boots from the exact same operating system image. Therefore, the new server appears to be the exact same server to the network.

LAN boot

Boots from a centralized provisioning server. It is frequently used to install operating systems on a server from that server.

Local disk boot

If the server has a local drive, boots from that drive.

Virtual media boot

Mimics the insertion of a physical CD-ROM disk (read-only) or floppy disk (read-write) into a server. It is typically used to manually install operating systems on a server.


Note


The default boot order is as follows:
  1. Local disk boot

  2. LAN boot

  3. Virtual media read-only boot

  4. Virtual media read-write boot


Configuring a Boot Policy

Procedure
  Command or Action Purpose
Step 1 UCS-A# scope org org-name  

Enters organization mode for the specified organization. To enter the root organization mode, type / as the org-name.

 
Step 2 UCS-A /org # create boot-policy policy-name [purpose {operational | utility}]  

Creates a boot policy with the specified policy name, and enters organization boot policy mode.

When you create the boot policy, specify the operational option. This ensures that the server boots from the operating system installed on the server. The utility options is reserved and should only be used if instructed to do so by a Cisco representative.

 
Step 3 UCS-A /org/boot-policy # set descr description   (Optional)

Provides a description for the boot policy.

Note   

If your description includes spaces, special characters, or punctuation, you must begin and end your description with quotation marks. The quotation marks do not appear in the description field of any show command output.

 
Step 4 UCS-A /org/boot-policy # set reboot-on-update {no | yes}  

Specifies whether the servers using this boot policy are automatically rebooted after you make changes to the boot order.

 
Step 5 UCS-A /org/boot-policy # commit-buffer  

Commits the transaction to the system configuration.

 

The following example creates a boot policy named boot-policy-LAN, provides a description for the boot policy, specifies that servers using this policy will not be automatically rebooted when the boot order is changed, and commits the transaction:


         
         UCS-A# scope org /
UCS-A /org* # create boot-policy boot-policy-LAN purpose operational
UCS-A /org/boot-policy* # set descr "Boot policy that boots from the LAN."
UCS-A /org/boot-policy* # set reboot-on-update no
UCS-A /org/boot-policy* # commit-buffer
UCS-A /org/boot-policy # 
What to Do Next

Configure one or more of the following boot options for the boot policy and set their boot order:


  • LAN Boot—Boots from a centralized provisioning server. It is frequently used to install operating systems on a server from that server.

    If you choose the LAN Boot option, continue to "Configuring a LAN Boot for a Boot Policy."

  • Storage Boot— Boots from an operating system image on the SAN. You can specify a primary and a secondary SAN boot. If the primary boot fails, the server attempts to boot from the secondary.

    Cisco recommends that you use a SAN boot, because it offers the most service profile mobility within the system. If you boot from the SAN, when you move a service profile from one server to another, the new server will boot from the exact same operating system image. Therefore, the new server will appear to be the exact same server to the network.

    If you choose the Storage Boot option, continue to "Configuring a Storage Boot for a Boot Policy."

  • Virtual Media Boot—Mimics the insertion of a physical CD into a server. It is typically used to manually install operating systems on a server.

    If you choose the Virtual Media boot option, continue to "Configuring a Virtual Media Boot for a Boot Policy."

Include the boot policy in a service profile and/or template.

IPMI Access Profile Configuration

IPMI Access Profile

This policy allows you to determine whether IPMI commands can be sent directly to the server, using the IP address. For example, you can send commands to retrieve sensor data from the BMC. This policy defines the IPMI access, including a username and password that can be authenticated locally on the server, and whether the access is read-only or read-write.

You must include this policy in a service profile and that service profile must be associated with a server for it to take effect.

Local Disk Configuration Policy Configuration

Local Disk Configuration Policy

This policy configures any optional SAS local drives that have been installed on a server through the onboard RAID controller of the local drive. This policy enables you to set a local disk mode for all servers that are associated with a service profile that includes the local disk configuration policy. The local disk modes include the following:


  • Any Configuration—For a server configuration that carries forward the local disk configuration without any changes.

  • No Local Storage—For a diskless workstation or a SAN only configuration. If you select this option, you cannot associate any service profile which uses this policy with a server that has a local disk.

  • No RAID—For a server configuration that removes the RAID and leaves the disk MBR and payload unaltered.

  • RAID Mirrored—For a 2-disk RAID 1 server configuration.

  • RAID Stripes—For a 2-disk RAID 0 server configuration.

You must include this policy in a service profile, and that service profile must be associated with a server for it to take effect.

Server Discovery Configuration

Server Discovery Policy

This discovery policy determines how the system reacts when you add a new server. If you create a server discovery policy, you can control whether the system conducts a deep discovery when a server is added to a chassis, or whether a user must first acknowledge the new server. By default, the system conducts a full discovery.

With this policy, an inventory of the server is conducted, then server pool policy qualifications are run to determine whether the new server qualifies for one or more server pools.

Configuring a Server Discovery Policy

Server Pool Policy Qualification Configuration

Server Pool Policy Qualifications

This policy qualifies servers based on the inventory of a server conducted during the discovery process. The qualifications are individual rules that you configure in the policy to determine whether a server meets the selection criteria. For example, you can create a rule that specifies the minimum memory capacity for servers in a data center pool.

Qualifications are used in other policies to place servers, not just by the server pool policies. For example, if a server meets the criteria in a qualification policy, it can be added to one or more server pools or have a service profile automatically associated with it.

Depending upon the implementation, you may include server pool policy qualifications in the following policies:


  • Autoconfiguration policy

  • Chassis discovery policy

  • Server discovery policy

  • Server inheritance policy

  • Server pool policy
