Cisco UCS blade Discovery Failed with an error Invalid adapter-iocard combination.
You may hit this error if you are not using recommended configuration for example:
- If you have 2104XP IOM and you are trying to install a blade with VIC1240 with a Port Expander adapter.( In this case just remove the port expander to make it work)
- If you have 2104XP IOM and you are trying to install a blade with VIC1340. ( This is non supported configuration, either we need to upgrade the IOM’s or downgrade the VIC to VIC1240)
- If you are using Fabric Interconnect’s 6100 with VIC1340 e.t.c.
The B200 M4 with E5-2600 v3 CPUs requires UCSM 2.2(3a) or later, Blades will not discover if you have less that 2.2(3a) and may hit below error.
