Create WWNN and WWPN pools in UCS Manager

This is part of a series of posts on how to initially configure you UCS B-Series system using UCS manager. With the information in this post, you will be able to configure the vHBAs needed for FC connectivity. Check the other posts under the Cisco section in my blog. If you are using iSCSI you can skip this step of the UCS B-Series configuration.

To start login into your UCS Manager, select the SAN Tab and Navigate to the Pool section. Right click on WWNN and click Create WWNN Pool


Give it a name, select Sequential and clock Next.
