Bare Metal Deployment of UCS Servers and Hyper-V with SCVMM and UCS PowerTool

Version 2

    At Microsoft Management Summit 2013, Eric Williams and Jason Shaw delivered a presentation providing an overview over Cisco UCS PowerTool, integration of Cisco UCS with Microsoft Windows 2012 DHCP, DNS, and WDS demonstrating Bare Metal Windows 2012 installation on Cisco UCS, and integration of Cisco UCS with Microsoft Windows Hyper-V 2012 and Microsoft System Center VIrtual Machine Manager 2012.  Below are the scripts from the examples that were demonstrated at MMS 2013.

    Integration with Microsoft Systems Center 2012 and Cisco UCS

    This examples shows end to end bare metal deployment of a set of service profiles defined in a specific organization of UCS Manager.  In the script and video, you will see a set of associated Service Profiles in a paricular organization on a UCS domain be provisioined as SCVMM Hyper-V hypervisors.  The script will syncronize any service profiles in the target organization in UCSM to SCVMM as VM Hosts, triggering a task sequence in SCVMM to bare metal provision the service profiles with Windows 2012 and Hyper-V.  The script ensure the configuration on the service profiles has the appropriate IPMI users and passwords defined to ensure SCVMM can communicate to the servers to start the task sequences needed to deploy Windows 2012 Hyper-V on the hosts.
