Viewing and managing UCS Provision Jobs
After a UCS Provision Job is created, you can view and manage it using many of the same actions as you would for a regular Provision Job. The following table lists several available actions. For more actions, see Managing jobs.
|Opening a job to view or edit its contents, including scheduling job execution||To open and edit a UCS Provision Job|
|Executing the job immediately||To execute a UCS Provision Job immediately|
Re-executing a UCS Provision Job that has already run, so that you can provision another profile on a different blade using the same template and system package settings.

If an Application Server stops running while a UCS Provision Job is in progress, the job is cancelled when the Application Server restarts. The system does not attempt to restart the job.
To open and edit a UCS Provision Job
- Right-click the job name in the Job folder.
The job opens in the content editor, typically on the right side of the Console.
Click the tabs along the bottom of the content editor to display and edit the job.
These tabs correspond to the wizard panels described in Creating a UCS Provision Job.
To schedule the job's execution for a specific date and time in the future, see
To save all changes that you made on the tabs, from the Console menu bar, select File > Save.
- To edit job properties and permissions, use the standard Properties and Permissions tabs, typically located in the lower left corner of the Console.
a UCS Provision Job immediatelyTo execute
In the Jobs folder, select the UCS Provision Job, right-click, and select Execute.
The job appears on the Tasks in Progress view, where you can view its status or cancel it, if necessary.
To re-execute a UCS Provision Job
- In the Jobs folder, right-click an existing UCS Provision Job and select Open.
- On the Profile Configuration tab, change the name of the profile to a new name.
- On the Blade Config tab, select a different blade or blade pool.
- On the Basic Config tab, enter new values for Computer name and OM server name.
- (If you configured the UCS Provision Job to use pools, skip this step.)If you specified MAC/WWN/UUID addresses manually, specify new values for the new profile:
- On the LAN vNICs tab, specify the new MAC addresses.
- On the SAN HBAs tab, specify the new WWNN address and new WWPN addresses for each vHBA.
- On the Blade Config tab, specify a new UUID address.
- Save and close the job.
- Right-click the job and execute it.
The edited job runs, provisioning another profile on a different blade using the same template and system package settings as in the original job.
Viewing the results of a UCS Provision Job
The system processes a UCS Provision Job in a two-step process. You see the results as a set of jobs, rather than as a single job.
- In the Tasks in Progress view, you see a single job entry.
- In the Job Results view, you see a hierarchy of parent and child jobs. You can examine logs for the separate jobs.
- A parent UCS provisioning job creates a profile. It also creates device provisioning jobs.
- The child jobs are the device provisioning jobs.
To view results of a UCS Provision Job
- In the Jobs folder, select the job, right-click, and select Show Results.
A new tab appears in the content editor. It shows the job's results.
- In the hierarchical tree on the left, expand the job run.
The pane on the right shows summary information for the job run. Information includes status, start and end times, and role and user associated with the job.
- On the Show Results tab, you can do the following:
- To view information about the device targeted by the job, click the job run in the hierarchical tree.
- To view the system package or UCS template used for the job, right-click the device in the hierarchical tree. Then select Open System Package or Open UCS Template.
