Project Description


This project will create code to enable a few functions of Cisco's UCS Manager to be provided from the SUSE Cloud Admin Node.

The functions are:


UCS Manager IP and credentials

These will be stored on the admin node


List the available servers

drill down or mouse over to view each server's HW Info

Match DNS name to server (we will investigate how to do this, may require using arp table to get IP and DNS to resolve name)

Current Status - powered on, off, etc

Actions for each server

Power On and PXE Boot OpenStack Image (could require setting network port to correct vlan via UCS Manager)

Power On

Power Off


These functions will be accessed under a new menu item in the SUSE Cloud Admin node labeled: Cisco UCS

The functions for UCS Manager are available via an XML API

SUSE Cloud Admin node code that will be interfaced with is primarily Ruby on Rails. Some python may be present, but most likely pure Ruby

The code must be written as independently as possible from the SUSE Cloud code with as little dependence as possible to ensure portability to the next upgrade with a minimal amount of work.

The code should maintain the look and feel of the SUSE Cloud Admin node.

I will provide access to a Cisco UCS Manager simulator, SUSE Cloud Admin Node and a primer session on the Cisco UCS Manager XML API (presented by Cisco).

I will have a minimal amount of access to guidance from a SUSE Cloud developer (no more than 5 - 10 minutes per day)
