Configuring Domain Groups

Configuring Domain Groups

This chapter includes the following sections:

Domain Groups

Cisco UCS Central creates a hierarchy of Cisco UCS domain groups for managing multiple Cisco UCS domains. You will have the following categories of domain groups in Cisco UCS Central:

  • Domain Group— A group that contains multiple Cisco UCS domains. You can group similar Cisco UCS domains under one domain group for simpler management.
  • Ungrouped Domains—When a new Cisco UCS domain is registered in Cisco UCS Central, it is added to the ungrouped domains. You can assign the ungrouped domain to any domain group.

If you have created a domain group policy, a new registered Cisco UCS domain meets the qualifiers defined in the policy, it will automatically be placed under the domain group specified in the policy. If not, it will be placed in the ungrouped domains category. You can assign this ungrouped domain to a domain group.

Each Cisco UCS domain can only be assigned to one domain group. You can assign or reassign membership of the Cisco UCS domains at any time. When you assign a Cisco UCS domain to a domain group, the Cisco UCS domain will automatically inherit all management policies specified for the domain group.

Before adding a Cisco UCS domain to a domain group, make sure to change the policy resolution controls to local in the Cisco UCS domain. This will avoid accidentally overwriting service profiles and maintenance policies specific to that Cisco UCS domain. Even when you have enabled auto discovery for the Cisco UCS domains, enabling local policy resolution will protect the Cisco UCS domain from accidentally overwriting policies.

Creating a Domain Group

Procedure
      Command or Action Purpose
    Step 1 UCSC# connect policy-mgr  

    Enters policy manager mode.

     
    Step 2 UCSC(policy-mgr)# scope domain-group 

    Enters the domain group root mode.

     
    Step 3 UCSC(policy-mgr) /domain-group # create domain-group 12 

    Creates the specified domain group.

     
    Step 4 UCSC(policy-mgr) /domain-group* # commit-buffer 

    Commits the transaction to the system.

     

    The following example shows how to create a domain group:

    UCSC# connect policy-mgr
    UCSC(policy-mgr)# scope domain-group
    UCSC(policy-mgr) /domain-group # create domain-group 12
    UCSC(policy-mgr) /domain-group* # commit-buffer
    UCSC(policy-mgr) /domain-group # 

    Deleting a Domain Group

    Procedure
        Command or Action Purpose
      Step 1 UCSC# connect policy-mgr  

      Enters policy manager mode.

       
      Step 2 UCSC(policy-mgr)# scope domain-group 

      Enters the domain group root mode.

       
      Step 3 UCSC(policy-mgr) /domain-group # delete domain-group 12 

      Deletes the specified domain group.

       
      Step 4 UCSC(policy-mgr) /domain-group* # commit-buffer 

      Commits the transaction to the system.

       

      The following example shows how to delete a domain group:

      UCSC# connect policy-mgr
      UCSC(policy-mgr)# scope domain-group
      UCSC(policy-mgr) /domain-group # delete domain-group 12
      UCSC(policy-mgr) /domain-group* # commit-buffer
      UCSC(policy-mgr) /domain-group # 

      Assigning a Domain Group Membership

      Procedure
          Command or Action Purpose
        Step 1 UCSC# connect resource-mgr. 

        Enters resource manager mode.

         
        Step 2 UCSC(resource-mgr)# scope domain-mgmt. 

        Enters the UCS domains.

         
        Step 3 UCSC(resource-mgr) /domain-mgmt # show ucs-membership IP Address 

        Displays the membership for the IP address.

         
        Step 4 UCSC(resource-mgr) /domain-mgmt # scope ucs-membership IP Address 

        Enters the Cisco UCS domain specified in the IP address.

         
        Step 5 UCSC(resource-mgr) /domain-mgmt/ucs-membership # set domain-group WORD  Domain Group DN  

        Specifies the domain group for the IP address.

         

        The following example shows how to assign membership to a Cisco UCS domain:

        UCSC# connect resource-mgr
        UCSC(resource-mgr)# scope domain-mgmt
        UCSC(resource-mgr) /domain-mgmt # show ucs-membership 
        UCS-Domain Group Membership:
           Mgmt IP         Qualification Type Domain Group DN
           --------------- ------------------ ---------------
           IP Address    Manual             domaingroup-root 
        UCSC(resource-mgr) /domain-mgmt # scope ucs-membership IP Address
        UCSC(resource-mgr) /domain-mgmt/ucs-membership # set domain-group WORD  Domain Group DN 
        UCSC(resource-mgr) /domain-mgmt/ucs-membership #
