This will probably be my shortest blog ever! Perhaps it is really a bloglet, whatever the case here’s what I’m doing. A question was posted in the Technical Discussions forum of the UCS section of the Cisco Developer Network
I have an environment consisiting of 20+ chassis … I’d like to be able to get the number of open blade slots on each of these.
I’m sure there has to be a command i can put together for this.
Here’s my response:
Something like this should work
PS C:\> Get-UcsFabricComputeSlotEp -Presence empty | Select-Object dn,chassisId,Rn
Dn ChassisId Rn
— ——— —
fabric/server/chassis-1/slot-5 1 slot-5
fabric/server/chassis-1/slot-6 1 slot-6
fabric/server/chassis-1/slot-7 1 slot-7
fabric/server/chassis-1/slot-8 1 slot-8
So I decided why don’t I tweet this and other UCS PowerTool One Liners on a regular basis. I’ll tag the tweets #ucsptol and expect to tweet a few a week. Follow me @johnamcdonough to get the goodness.
