Description (partial)

Symptom:
Enhancement request to QA/support vCenter Server Appliance and VM-FEX

Currently VM-FEX and vCSA are not supported and require the full install of vCenter on Windows.  Customers are starting to migrate to vCSA for cost and simplicity purposes.

From VMware:
"UCS Manager with VM-FEX does not support the vCenter Server Appliance in any available release."

From Cisco:
"You need VMware vCenter (vCenter Server and vSphere Client) for VM-FEX for VMware. The VMware vCenter must meet the following requirements:

The Windows-based machine that you install VMware vCenter on must have network connectivity to the Cisco UCS management port and to the uplink Ethernet port(s) being used by the ESX host."
