You want to configure IP pools and MAC pools in the Cisco UCS Manager GUI.
Which of the following Navigation pane tables should you click?
You should click the LAN tab in the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Manager graphical user interface (GUI) if you want to configure Internet Protocol (IP) pools and Media Access Control (MAC) pools. Cisco UCS Manager GUI is a Java application. The main area of the GUI is divided into a Navigation pane and a work area. The selections you click in the Navigation pane determine the information and configuration fields that are displayed in the work area.
The Navigation pane of the Cisco UCS Manager GUI contains six tabs in a row across the top of the pane. To configure or view a given element of Cisco UCS Manager, you should first click the Navigation pane tab appropriate for that element. The Navigation pane contains all of the following tabs:
– The Equipment tab
– The Servers tab
– The LAN tab
– The SAN tab
– The VM tab
– The Admin tab
The Equipment tab can be used to display an inventory of the UCS domain. This information includes color-coded fault indicators, such as a red, yellow, or orange rectangle. If a device has a fault, one of these indicators will appear around the name of the device on the Equipment tab. The Equipment tab contains four nodes: Equipment, Chassis, Rack-mounts, and Fabric Interconnects. Selected nodes contain information specific to the devices indicated by the node name. For example, the Fabric Interconnects node contains information about expansion modules, fans, and power supply units (PSUs) connected to the domain’s fabric interconnects.
The Servers tab can be used to modify server-specific configurations, such as policies, profiles, and universally unique identifier (UUID) pools. The Servers tab contains six nodes: Servers, Service Profiles, Service Profile Templates, Policies, Pools, and Schedules. Selected nodes contain information specific to the server configurations indicated by the node name. For example, the Policies node allows the configuration of policies related to server adapters, server firmware, and other components.
The LAN tab can be used to configure local area network (LAN) components, such as Quality of Service (QoS) classes, virtual LANs (VLANs), and flow control policies. The LAN tab contains seven nodes: LAN Cloud, Appliances, Internal LAN, Policies, Pools, Traffic Monitoring Sessions, and Netflow Monitoring. Selected nodes contain information specific to the LAN component indicated by the node name. For example, the Pools node allows the configuration of both IP address pools and MAC address pools that have been defined for a LAN.
The SAN tab can be used to configure storage area network (SAN) components, such as virtual SANs (vSANs), and World Wide Name (WWN) pools. The SAN tab contains six nodes: SAN, SAN Cloud, Storage Cloud, Policies, Pools, and Traffic Monitoring Sessions. Selected nodes contain information specific to the SAN component indicated by the node name. For example, the SAN node allows the configuration of SAN uplinks, Fibre Channel (FC) address assignments, and vSANs.
The VM tab can be used to configure virtual machine-fabric extender (VM-FEX) for UCS domain servers that are equipped with virtual interface cards (VICs). The VM tab contains seven nodes: All, Clusters, Fabric Network Sets, Port Profiles, VM Networks, Microsoft, and VMware. Selected nodes contain information specific to the VM component indicated by the node name. For example, the VMware node can be used to configure Cisco UCS Manager connections to VMware vCenter.
The Admin tab can be used to configure system-wide settings that must be configured by an administrator or viewed by a security administrator. The Admin tab contains 10 nodes:
– Faults, Events and Audit Log
– User Management
– Key Management
– Communication Management
– Stats Management
– Time Zone Management
– Capability Catalog
– Management Extension
– License Management
Selected nodes contain information specific to the administrative component indicated by the node name. For example, the User Management node allows the configuration of authentication methods and user roles as well as remote access methods.
