A touchpad on a laptop that does not turn off while typing can be quite frustrating. While configuring a new laptop, I found that this was not occurring as expected. This post walks through the process used to look at the issue and correct it.
There are a couple of different steps to complete this process. This quick post will focus on the utilization of the Host Upgrade Utility (HUU) provided by Cisco.
This is a quick post outlining how to correct the error within UCS CIMC stating that the Virtual Media device is disabled or in use.
This is a quick note about the default passwords in a Cisco UCS C series system and how you can reset the credential.
I currently have some UC 10.x and 11.x licensing that is purchased and used for demonstrations. With the recent purchase of the 11.x licenses, a Prime License Manager (PLM) server was stood up to manage the multiple clusters using multiple versions of the CUCM platform. This post walks through the process of standing up a stand-alone PLM server, pulling licenses from the Cisco licensing website, and the rehosting of licenses from a legacy license manager.
