Cisco UCS E-Series Servers and the Cisco UCS E-Series
Network Compute Engine Overview
The Cisco UCS E-Series Servers (E-Series Servers) and Cisco UCS E-Series Network Compute Engine (NCE)
are a family of size-, weight-, and power-efficient blade servers that are housed within the Generation 2 Cisco
Integrated Services Routers (Cisco ISR G2) and the Cisco ISR 4000 series. These servers provide a general
purpose compute platform for branch-office applications deployed either as bare-metal on operating systems,
such as Microsoft Windows or Linux, or as virtual machines on hypervisors, such as VMware vSphere
Hypervisor, Microsoft Hyper-V, or Citrix XenServer.
The E-Series Servers are purpose-built with powerful Intel Xeon processors for general purpose compute.
They come in two form factors: single-wide and double-wide. The single-wide E-Series Server fits into one
service module (SM) slot, and the double-wide E-Series Server fits into two SM slots.
The NCEs are price-to-power optimized modules that are built to host Cisco network applications and other
lightweight general-purpose applications. They come in three form factors: SM, NIM, and EHWIC. The SM
E-Series NCE fits into one SM slot, the NIM E-Series NCE fits into one NIM slot, and the EHWIC E-Series
NCE fits into two EHWIC slots.

Overview
Server Software
Server Software
E-Series Servers and NCE require three major software systems:
• CIMC firmware
• BIOS firmware
• Operating system or hypervisor
The following figure shows how the software interacts with the server.
Figure 3: Server Software
CIMC Firmware
Cisco Integrated Management Controller (CIMC) is a separate management module built into the motherboard
of the E-Series Server or NCE. A dedicated ARM-based processor, separate from the main server CPU, runs
the CIMC firmware. The system ships with a running version of the CIMC firmware. You can update the
CIMC firmware, but no initial installation is needed.
CIMC is the management service for the E-Series Servers and NCE. You can use a web-based GUI or
SSH-based CLI to access, configure, administer, and monitor the server.
BIOS Firmware
BIOS initializes the hardware in the system, discovers bootable devices, and boots them in the provided
sequence. It boots the operating system and configures the hardware for the operating system to use. BIOS
manageability features allow you to interact with the hardware and use it. In addition, BIOS provides options
to configure the system, manage firmware, and create BIOS error reports.
The system ships with a running version of the BIOS firmware. You can update the BIOS firmware, but no
initial installation is needed.
Operating System or Hypervisor
The main server CPU runs on an operating system, such as Microsoft Windows or Linux; or on a hypervisor.
You can purchase an E-Series Server or NCE with a preinstalled Microsoft Windows Server or VMware
vSphere Hypervisor, or you can install your own platform.
Note
For information about the platforms that have been tested on the E-Series Servers or NCE, see the "Software
Requirements" section in the Release Notes for Cisco UCS E-Series Servers and the Cisco UCS E-Series
Network Compute Engine.

Important
If you are migrating the E-Series Server from a Cisco ISR G2 into a Cisco ISR 4000 series, you must first
upgrade the CIMC and the BIOS firmware image to the latest version—while the E-Series Server is still
installed in the Cisco ISR G2—and then migrate it into the Cisco ISR 4000 series. We strongly recommend
that you upgrade both the CIMC and the BIOS firmware images.
You can use either the Cisco Host Upgrade Utility (HUU) to upgrade the firmware components or you
can upgrade the firmware components manually. For firmware upgrade information, see Upgrading
Firmware, on page 135 .
If you migrate the E-Series Server into the Cisco ISR 4000 series without first updating the CIMC firmware,
the E-Series Server might continuously reset. To stop the reset and install the firmware, see Stopping the

Configuring CIMC Access Using the EHWIC E-Series NCE's External GE2 Interface
Important
If you are using the external GE2 interface on an EHWIC E-Series NCE or the NIM E-Series NCE to
configure CIMC access, to configure CIMC access, you might lose connectivity with CIMC during server
reboot. This is expected behavior. If you must maintain connectivity with CIMC during a reboot, we
recommend that you use one of the other network interfaces to configure CIMC access. See CIMC Access
Configuration Options—EHWIC E-Series NCE, on page 56.
If you want to use the external GE2 interface to configure CIMC access, we recommend that you use the
spanning-tree portfast command. For details, see the CSCup50049 caveat in the Release Notes for Cisco
UCS E-Series Servers and the Cisco UCS E-Series Network Compute Engine at
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/unified_computing/ucs/e/2-0/release/notes/2_0_release_notes.html.

KVM Console
KVM Console
The KVM console is an interface accessible from the CIMC that emulates a direct keyboard, video, and mouse
connection to the server. The KVM console allows you to connect to the server from a remote location. Instead
of using CD/DVD or floppy drives physically connected to the server, the KVM console uses virtual media,
which are actual disk drives or disk image files that are mapped to virtual CD/DVD or floppy drives. You
can map any of the following to a virtual drive:
• CD/DVD or floppy drive on your computer
• Disk image files (ISO or IMG files) on your computer
• USB flash drive on your computer
You can use the KVM console to install an operating system or hypervisor on the server and to do the following:
• Access the BIOS setup menu by pressing F2 during bootup.
• Access the CIMC Configuration Utility by pressing F8 during bootup.
Note
The CIMC Configuration Utility is not applicable to the EHWIC E-Series NCE and the

Reboot the server.
When the server reboots, it begins the installation process from the virtual CD/DVD drive. Refer to the
installation guide for the platform being installed to guide you through the rest of the installation process.
Step 10 If disk drives are not displayed after you install the operating system or hypervisor, you must install drivers.
See the appropriate operating system or hypervisor documentation for instructions on how to install drivers.
For instructions on how to install drivers on a Microsoft Windows operating system, see Installing Drivers
for the Microsoft Windows Server, on page 98.
What to Do Next
After the installation is complete, reset the virtual media boot order to its original setting.
PXE Installation Servers
A Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) installation server allows a client to boot and install an operating
system or hypervisor from a remote location. To use this method, a PXE environment must be configured
and available on your VLAN, typically a dedicated provisioning VLAN. In addition, the server must be set
to boot from the network. When the server boots, it sends a PXE request across the network. The PXE
installation server acknowledges the request, and starts a sequence of events that installs the operating system
or hypervisor on the server.
PXE servers can use installation disks, disk images, or scripts to install the operating system or hypervisor.
Proprietary disk images can also be used to install the platform, additional components, or applications.
Note
PXE installation is an efficient method for installing a platform on a large number of servers. However,
considering that this method requires setting up a PXE environment, it might be easier to use another
installation method.
Installing an Operating System or Hypervisor Using a PXE Installation Server
Before You Begin
Verify that the server can be reached over a VLAN.

Host Image Mapping
Note
The VMware vSphere Hypervisor requires a customized image. To download the customized image, see
Downloading the Customized VMware vSphere Hypervisor Image, on page 101.
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Set the boot order to PXE.
Reboot the server.
Caution
If you are using the shared LOM interfaces to access CIMC, make sure that you do not use the
CIMC GUI during the server reboot process. If you use the CIMC GUI, the GUI will disconnect
during PXE installation as the boot agent overrides the IP address that was previously configured
on the Ethernet ports.
If a PXE install server is available on the VLAN, the installation process begins when the server reboots. PXE
installations are typically automated and require no additional user input. Refer to the installation guide for
the operating system or hypervisor being installed to guide you through the rest of the installation process.
What to Do Next
After the installation is complete, reset the LAN boot order to its original setting.
Host Image Mapping
The Host Image Mapping feature allows you to download, map, unmap, or delete a host image. Download a
host image, such as Microsoft Windows, Linux, or VMware from a remote FTP or HTTP server onto the
CIMC internal repository, and then map the image onto the virtual drive of a USB controller in the E-Series
Server or NCE. After you map the image, set the boot order to make the virtual drive, in which the image is
mounted, as the first boot device, and then reboot the server. The host image must have .iso or .img as the file
extension.
The Host Image Mapping feature also allows you to download and mount a diagnostics image. The diagnostics
image must have .diag as the file extension.
Mapping the Host Image
Before You Begin
• Log in to CIMC as a user with admin privileges.
• Obtain the host image file from the appropriate third party.
Note
The VMware vSphere Hypervisor requires a customized image. To download the customized image, see

Options for Upgrading Firmware
You can use either the Cisco Host Upgrade Utility (HUU) to upgrade the firmware components or you can
upgrade the firmware components manually.
• HUU—We recommend that you use the HUU ISO file to upgrade all firmware components, which
include the CIMC and BIOS firmware.
Note
You cannot use the HUU to upgrade the Programmable Logic Devices (PLD) firmware.
You must use the Cisco IOS CLI to upgrade the PLD firmware. For details, see the
"Upgrading Programmable Logic Devices Firmware on the E-Series EHWIC NCE"
section in the CLI Configuration Guide for Cisco UCS E-Series Servers and the Cisco
UCS E-Series Network Compute Engine.
• Manual Upgrade—To manually upgrade the CIMC and BIOS firmware, you must first obtain the
firmware from Cisco Systems, and then use the CIMC GUI or the CIMC CLI to upgrade it. After you
upgrade the firmware, reboot the system.
For instructions on how to obtain firmware from Cisco Systems and for CIMC and BIOS firmware
installation procedures, see the "Firmware Management" chapter in the configuration guides for the

Cisco Host Upgrade Utility Overview
The Cisco Host Upgrade Utility (HUU) is a tool that you can use to upgrade the firmware on the Cisco UCS
E-Series Servers (E-Series Servers) and the Cisco UCS E-Series Network Compute Engine (NCE). The HUU
provides a web-based GUI where you can choose all or specific firmware components to upgrade.
The following firmware components are available for upgrade:
• Cisco Integrated Management Controller (CIMC)
• System BIOS
• LAN on motherboard (LOM)
• RAID controllers
• Broadcom PCI adapters:
• 5709 Dual and Quad port adapters
• 57712 Dual port adapter
• LSI
• LSI MegaRAID SAS 9240-4i
You cannot use the HUU to upgrade the Programmable Logic Devices (PLD) firmware. You must use the
Cisco IOS CLI to upgrade the PLD firmware. For details, see the "Upgrading Programmable Logic Devices
Firmware on the E-Series EHWIC NCE" section in the CLI Configuration Guide for Cisco UCS E-Series
Servers and the Cisco UCS E-Series Network Compute Engine.
Minimum CIMC and BIOS Firmware Releases Required to Use
HUU
The HUU is supported on CIMC, release 2.1.0 and later releases. To use HUU, make sure that you upgrade
both the CIMC and BIOS firmware to the release specified in the table below.
Note
The HUU is not supported on CIMC, releases 1.0 and 1.0(2). If you try to use the HUU on a server that
has an older release of CIMC, you will get an error message asking you to upgrade the firmware.
The following table provides information about the minimum CIMC and BIOS releases required to use the
HUU.

Upgrading Firmware
Troubleshooting
Important
• If the BIOS firmware is selected for update, it will be the last one to update because it
requires the host to be powered off. You can check the progress of the BIOS update from
the CIMC GUI or CIMC CLI. After the BIOS update completes, you must use the CIMC
GUI or the CIMC CLI to manually power on the host.
• If the CIMC firmware is selected for update—after you click the Exit button from the HUU
GUI—the new CIMC firmware gets automatically activated. However, if both the BIOS
and CIMC firmwares are selected for update, the CIMC firmware does not get automatically
activated. You must use the CIMC GUI or the CIMC CLI to manually activate the new
CIMC firmware.
• When the new CIMC firmware gets activated, you will lose network connectivity to the
CIMC GUI, CIMC CLI, and virtual KVM. Also, the mapped HUU ISO image gets
unmapped. To run the HUU, you must map the HUU ISO image again.
• When the LOM firmware is updated, you might lose network connectivity to the CIMC
GUI and virtual KVM.
Step 20 Unmap the HUU ISO image. Do one of the following:
• From the CIMC GUI, click the Launch KVM Console icon on the toolbar, from the Mapped column,
check the check box for the mounted HUU ISO image, and then click Remove Image.
• From the CIMC CLI, use the unmap-image command:
• Server/host-image-mapping
# unmap-image
Step 21 Reboot the server.
Troubleshooting
Problem
Solution
Connection to the CIMC is lost after an update and
reboot, and the KVM session ends.
This is expected behavior after a firmware update.
Log back in to the CIMC, and then re-establish your
KVM session.
Error Message:
This error message displays when the HUU ISO

Configuration Differences
Router Configuration Differences Between the Cisco ISR G2 and the Cisco ISR 4000 Series
• In the E-Series Server, the sm slot/port command is replaced by the ucse slot/port command.
• In the E-Series Server, the service-module keyword is replaced by the imc keyword.
• In the E-Series Server, the default gateway command resides in the same command line as the imc ip
address command.
• Since the E-Series Server has different external interfaces, you must specify the access port using the
imc access-port command.
• In the E-Series Server, you can either use the dedicated interface or one of the shared local area network
on motherboard (shared LOM) interfaces to configure CIMC access. See Configuring Access to the
Management Firmware , on page 25.
In the above example, the imc access-port shared-lom console command uses the console interface
for CIMC access, where:
◦imc access-port—is the physical Ethernet connection to the E-Series Server.
◦shared-lom—is shared LOM.
◦console—is the router interface.
The command to session into the server has also changed:
• The Cisco SRE-V uses the service-module sm slot/0 session command to session into the server.
• The E-Series Server uses the ucse slot session {imc | host} command to session into the server.

Configuration Differences
Router Configuration Differences Between the E-Series Server and the EHWIC E-Series NCE—Cisco ISR G2
• In the Cisco ISR 4000 series, the interface ucse slot/port command is replaced by the ucse subslot
slot/subslot and the interface ucse slot/subslot/port commands.
• In the Cisco ISR G2, you can use either the dedicated interface or one of the shared local area network
on motherboard (shared LOM) interfaces to configure CIMC access.
In the Cisco ISR 4000 series, you can use either the management interface or one of the NIC interfaces
to configure CIMC access. See Configuring Access to the Management Firmware , on page 25.
In the above example, the command configures CIMC access using the E-Series Server's internal GE0
NIC interface, where:
◦imc access-port—CIMC access port configuration.
◦ge0—E-Series Server's internal GE0 NIC interface.
The command to session into the server has also changed:
• In the Cisco ISR G2, you use the ucse slot session {imc | host} command to session into the server.
• In the Cisco ISR 4000 series, you use the hw-module subslot slot/0 session {imc | server} command
to session into the server.

0/subslot/port command.
• In the EHWIC E-Series NCE, the ip route cimc-ip-address subnet-mask ucse slot/port command is
replaced by the ip route cimc-ip-address subnet-mask ucse 0/subslot/port command.

VMware vSphere Hypervisor Configuration Differences
In the Cisco SRE-V, the IP address of the VMware vSphere Hypervisor host is the same as the IP address of
the service module. For example, in the Cisco SRE-V, service-module ip address 10.0.0.2 (see table) is also
assigned to the VMware vSphere Hypervisor host.

However, with the E-Series Server, the IMC IP address, which is also 10.0.0.2 (see the example above), is
reserved for CIMC access. You enter this IP address (10.0.0.2) on your web browser to access the CIMC GUI.
In the E-Series Server, either the VMware vSphere Hypervisor assigns an IP address to the host using DHCP,
or you can choose to assign a static IP address to the VMware vSphere Hypervisor host. See Assigning a
Static IP Address to the VMware vSphere Hypervisor, on page 101.
