Syncing UCS Director

UCS Director

It’s an automation tool. Not only for Cisco UCS servers, but also for networking, hypervisors and storage. Today I wanted to automate our FlashStack which contains storage of PureStorage¬†with the UCS Director.

When configuring UCS Director, I noticed I had to create a WWNN pool at the UCS Manager. After configuring, the UCS Director wasn’t updated yet. This is done periodically and I was faster then the sync. I didn’t wanted to wait, so I had to sync is manually.

There was no correct WWNN Pool was found so I had to create it at the UCS Manager.

UCS Director Storage Policy

No WWNN pool found which I wanted to see.


Here is the solution to sync UCS Director with for instance UCS Manager

Go to Administration and the System


Search for the correct system task and hit Run Now

In this case I want the UCS Inventory Collector run, so that the UCS Manager is synced with UCS Director.

And now the WWNN pool was found which I created on the UCS Manager!
