EMC UIM/P 4.1 new features: Add multiple vNICs, list Pending Network Changes

I have been playing with EMC UIM/P 4.1 recently and discovered a couple new features that were not available in the previous versions.

If you need to add new vNICs to an existing Service, you can now add them as a pair! Selected VLANs, MTU, Native VLAN, QoS and other Policies will be configured identically for both vNICs AND they will be places on different switches, one on switch A, one on switch B! How cool is that!!! Unfortunately, in the best tradition of EMC UIM development, this feature is not available for new Service Offering configuration…

… and here is another cool new feature – before you hit the Apply button, you can check what changes are pending. No more guessing or double checking the changes you are about to apply!

Click on Changes Pending and confirm the difference between the current and the target configuration:
