New Software Features

Cisco UCS Platform Emulator, Release 2.2(2cPE1) includes the following new features:

  • Support for the scriptable vMedia feature to create mount points on Cisco IMC. The mounts are only configured and not actually mounted.
  • New tab Storage Controller added under Startup Inventory. You can drag and drop the storage controllers on the rack-mounted servers or the blade servers.
  • You can add the scalable M4 Blade Module in scaled (4S) or non-scaled (2S) mode.
  • The default configuration is changed to the M3 blade and rack-mounted servers.


NOTE: From UCS PE 2.2(1bPE1) onwards, UCS PE supports uploading the B-Series and C-Series server firmware bundles.  Because of the large file sizes of the firmware bundles, UCS PE only supports uploading of only the stripped-down versions (attached to this document), which includes only the firmware metadata but not the actual firmware itself in the binaries.  The stripped-down version of the firwmare bundles which contain metadata only of the B-series and C-series server firmware is reduced to approximately 50 kB in size.
