UCS Manager 2.1: Case of the Missing Management IP Pools

My colleague Barry Gursky was playing with the new UCS Manager Emulator for the new 2.1 release (which you can find on Cisco’s web site, you’ll need a CCO account but no special contracts from what I can tell) and he noticed something. The Management IP Pool menu was missing.

UCS Manager 2.0 and prior had the Management IP Pool in the Admin Tab

It’s normally in the Admin tab, as shown above. But sure enough, it was gone.

You need pools of IP addresses to assign to service profiles and blades for out of band management (Cisco Integrated Management Controller, gives you KVM, IPMI, etc.). Or you could assign the IPs manually, but that would be rather annoying. Pools are way easier.

We searched and finally found it moved to the LAN tab.

Mystery solved.
