Cisco’s UCS platform is an amazing blade infrastructure. They are extremely reliable, very fast, and easily expanded. Today, I’m going to briefly go over how to add a vLAN to your Cisco UCS setup, using the Cisco Unified Computing System Manager. This guide assumes you have already configured the vLAN on your network and you have trunk-enabled ports being fed into your UCS and/or Fabric switches.
Go ahead and log into the Cisco UCS Manager. Once you have logged in, select the LAN tab, then VLANs (in the left column). Once there, click the New button, up at the top, and then Create VLANs.
For the VLAN Name/Prefix, give the VLAN a unique identifiable name. In the VLAN IDs field, you need to enter to exact vLAN ID that was assigned to the vLAN when you configured it on your network infrastructure. Once you have filled in those two fields, click OK.
