Question

Fault suppression allows you to suppress SNMP trap and Call Home notifications during a planned maintenance period.

Which three commands are necessary to activate these suppression polices in Cisco UCS Manager? (Choose three.)

Answers

Explanations

A. B. C. D. E. F.

ABC.

The correct answers are A, B, and F.

To activate fault suppression policies in Cisco UCS Manager, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Equipment tab in the UCS Manager GUI and select the equipment category that you want to suppress faults for, such as Chassis or Fabric Interconnect.

  2. From the equipment category, select the specific equipment entity that you want to configure for fault suppression. For example, if you want to suppress faults for all chassis in your UCS deployment, select the "Chassis" category and then select "All" from the list of available chassis.

  3. Click on the "Faults" tab in the main pane of the UCS Manager GUI.

  4. Click the "Add" button to add a new fault suppression policy.

  5. In the "Add Fault Suppression Policy" dialog box, enter a name for the policy and select the type of fault that you want to suppress. You can select from SNMP traps, syslog messages, Call Home notifications, or all three.

  6. Next, select the severity level of the faults that you want to suppress. For example, you might choose to suppress only informational and warning-level faults during a maintenance window.

  7. Finally, select the period of time during which you want to suppress faults. You can choose a specific start and end time for the suppression period, or you can specify a recurring schedule for the suppression period.

Once you have created a fault suppression policy, you need to activate it for the relevant equipment entities. To do this, use the following commands:

A. Default-chassis-all-maint: This command activates the fault suppression policy for all chassis during a maintenance period.

B. Default-chassis-phys-maint: This command activates the fault suppression policy for physical chassis components (such as power supplies and fans) during a maintenance period.

F. Default-vic-phys-maint: This command activates the fault suppression policy for Virtual Interface Cards (VICs) during a maintenance period.

The other answer options (C, D, and E) are not relevant for activating fault suppression policies in UCS Manager.
