Opened: Mar 23, 2017
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

Many objects are ignored by the platform-migrate option, and must be reconfigured before use when loading a UCS from another device.

Impact

Risk of configuration load failures.

Conditions

UCS is being loaded from another device, using the platform-migrate option.

Workaround

None, other than reconfiguring for the destination device.

Fix Information

The platform-migrate option for UCS loading has been modified so that nearly all configuration is loaded. Now, the only things you must configure are the management IP and license, then you can load the UCS. The end result should be a successfully loaded configuration, but with empty VLANs and trunks. You should be able to pass traffic once you reconnect these VLANs to interfaces.
