In Cisco UCS system, one of the important configuration is service profile template type, choosing from “initial template” or “updating template”. Updating service profile template provide the ability to update the binded service profile when template itself is updated.
In some user cases, the service profile template is created as an “initial template” initially. But the user want to change it from “initial” to “updating” at a later stage. Unfortunately, there is no direct conversion option in UCS, this post is to provide an alternative way to achieve this.
