Enable XML API for the Cisco UCS Manager.



  1. Log in to the Cisco UCS Manager web console.
  2. Navigate to Admin > Communication Management > Communication Services.
  3. Verify that the HTTP & CIM XML services are enabled.
    If the Redirect HTTP to HTTPS option is enabled, you will need to use secure communication when configuring your SolutionPack block.
  4. If you want to use secure communications between the collector and the UCS Manager:
    • Choose the secure communication option when adding the UCS Manager.
    • Configure HTTPS on the Communication Services page of UCS Manager.

What to do next

VMware recommends that you create a new dedicated service account for SolutionPack integration. Role-read-only role is sufficient for the SolutionPack to work properly.
