Cisco UCS Hyper-V Cluster – Install Blade Servers – Part 3

After you have created a new Hyper-V 2008 R2 ISO Installation image you can now start to install the Cisco Blade Servers. There are many ways (WDS, Virtual Media) how you can deploy the Hyper-V Image on your Blade Nodes. I will use the Virtual Media to install the Blade Notes in this guide.

  1. Start the KVM Console in the UCS Manager

  2. Attach the Hyper-V 2008 R2 Image to the Virtual Media

  3. Now do the standard Hyper-V installation. With the Image we created Hyper-V will have all the drivers you need.

  4. After the Installation is finished and you set the local administrator password. I change the IP Address of the Server and install the latest updates.
