BTW – anytime there is a major new release of software like vSphere 5.1, in spite of the unbelievable efforts of many to catch everything, update support matrices, some things always miss the cutoff. Usually, the time gap to fill these is very short. Don’t read into my “Heads up!” posts on PP/VE, Symmetrix, and this one any more or less than that….
Just got a heads up from one of our customers (THANK YOU!) that apparently for vSphere 5.1 support on Cisco UCS, the VMEM needs a new vSphere 5.1 specific .vib.
There are boatloads of EMC labs and customers using Cisco UCS, so check the Cisco support matrix, and stay tuned. I would suspect this will get fixed ASAP (like the PP/VE topic).
