The Cisco Connected Safety and Security UCS series servers support the following:
One 1-Gb Ethernet dedicated management port
Two 1-Gb Base-T Ethernet ports
Note ● The LAN Ethernet posts are referred to as “Eth 0” and “Eth1” in the Cisco Connected Safety and Security applications, such as Cisco Video Surveillance.
The Cisco Connected Safety and Security UCS series servers do NOT support the NIC redundancy modes. Only the None option is supported: the Ethernet ports operate independently and do not fail over if there is a problem.
Hard Drive Requirements
Drives are not rebuilt when the same drive is removed and reinserted. The removed drive must be replaced with a new drive. The rebuild will start automatically.
Installation is supported only the following drive combinations.
– Cisco CSS UCSM4 1RU—Supports either 2 or 4 hard drives (other combinations are not supported).
– Cisco CSS UCSM4 2RU—Supports either 2 or 6-12 drives (other combinations are not supported).
All drives must be of the same capacity. Drives of different capacities are not supported (for example, you cannot mix 2TB, 4TB or 6TB drives in the same server).
Installation is supported only if all hard drives are in optimal state.
The following sections provide information about the devices that this version of VSM supports:
Emulex LPe 12002 Dual Port 8Gb Fibre Channel HBA Card
The Cisco CSS UCSM4 1RU and Cisco CSS UCSM4 2RU servers support the (optional) Emulex LPe 12002 Dual Port 8Gb Fibre Channel HBA (CPS-AEPCI05) card. This card is used to connection external devices, such as external storage.
The Cisco Connected Safety and Security UCS series servers support Cisco Video Surveillance Manager (Cisco VSM), Release 7.7 and higher. The Cisco Connected Safety and Security UCSM4 1RU and Cisco Connected Safety and Security UCSM4 2RU servers are shipped as server appliances, meaning that the Cisco Video Surveillance Manager system software is pre-loaded in a “bare-metal” configuration.
Note These servers do not currently support additional virtual machine (VM) installations. Virtual Machine deployment is supported on separate Cisco UCS Express, and B-, C-, and E- Series platform servers. See the “VM Installations” section for more information.
