UCS Central is a great way to make MAC, WWPN, and UUID pools for any UCS from a central location. Also vNIC and vHBA templates.
RWUCS gives this a 4 out of 5 stars unless you have several UCS systems that are all managed by 1 or 2 people and multi-tenancy isn’t utilized. UCS Central does effect thinking on setting up multiple UCS systems to “fit into the mold”. Often UCS systems are built for specific purposes and cannot support Service Profiles from other UCS systems within an organization. UCS Central will cause more UCS installations to be uniform, and that is an advantage good for UCS Culture.
