  • The way we put the service profile to work with our role- and policy-based management makes it even more powerful. Instead of configuring individual servers, your subject-matter experts now create policies for how a specific type of server should be configured. The server guy might determine the pool of UUIDs from which the server identity should be drawn and what firmware revision to install. The network guy might decide what VLANs the NIC should be connected to, and what QoS settings are appropriate. The storage administrator might decide what firmware revision is appropriate for the HBAs and what pool their identities should be drawn from. Each SME role is separate, and each SME can only affect variables appropriate for their roles. Each SME also can see what the other SMEs have done, so the system facilitates communication through mechanisms more reliable than sticky notes attached to a server.The “packages” in this first build are very generic samples of what a server SME/Network SME/Storage SME  could possibly assign policies in their role as a SME. What we are trying to show is the fact that although each SME role is separate, and each SME can only affect variables appropriate for their roles, each SME also can see what the other SMEs have done.  So the system facilitates communication  among the SMEs, and the service profiles TEMPLATE is  created  which  dictates how to automatically create a service profile based on the policies defined by the SMEs. The way we put the service profile to work with our role- and policy-based management makes it even more powerful.  2) One of the most effective ways to use Cisco UCS Manager is to create a service profile TEMPLATE that dictates how to automatically create a service profile based on the policies defined by the SMEs. Using templates allows even the least-skilled administrator to create service profiles that are compliant with the standards that the experts determined. 3 & 4) Once a service profile template is created, it can be used to create any number of service profiles that can be associated with servers and thus automate their configuration
