Get Compute Systems

GET /vdc/varrays/{id}/compute-systems

Fetches all Compute Systems that are visible in the vArray First determine physical connectivity to any switches in the vArrray. 1. From the vArray, determine the networks. (Call this Network Set) 2. From the networks, get the physical switches that are attached. 3. For each physical switch, iterate through the networks and get the FC endpoints. 4. Look for any of the FIC ports in any of the FC endpoints on any of the networks on the physical switch. When a FIC port matches, call this FIC Port. 5. If found, then there is physical connectivity. With physical connectivity Established: 1. Given the FIC Port from step (4), pull the VSAN or VSANs assigned to it on UCS. 2. If the set contains one of the networks from the Network Set in (1), we have connectivity to that vArray.
