The following minimum
hardware, browser, and port requirements must be met prior to Cisco UCS Manager
Before you set up
Cisco UCS Manager, make sure that the following physical cabling requirements
The Cisco UCS
Fabric Interconnects act as the concentration point for all cabling to and from
the Blade Server Chassis. The following diagram shows the Cisco UCS Fabric
Interconnects Cluster Connectivity.
Connect the two
fabric interconnects using the integrated ports labeled L1 and L2. These ports
are used for replication of cluster information between the two fabric
interconnects, not for the forwarding of data traffic.
Ethernet ports of each fabric interconnect to the out-of-band Ethernet
management network or Ethernet segment where they can be accessed for overall
administration of the system.
blade chassis with two fabric extenders (I/O modules) to provide connectivity
back to the fabric interconnects.
From the Blade
Server Chassis, connect one I/O module to the first fabric interconnect.
Connect the second I/O module to the second fabric interconnect. After you have
configured the fabric interconnects, they will be designated as "A" and "B"
You can connect the
I/O modules to the fabric interconnects by using one, two, four, or eight
cables per module. For system resiliency and throughput, it is recommended that
you use a minimum of two connections per I/O module

Cisco UCS Manager uses web start and supports the following web browsers:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 or higher
Mozilla Firefox 45 or higher
Google Chrome 57 or higher
Apple Safari version 9 or higher

The ports with the
same speed can be configured in a port channel. A port channel cannot have both
breakout and regular ports due to the difference in the speed.
