We use cisco_ucs probe to monitor "cisco ucs central"  v 2.0 
The
 issue is  with the server's name . 
The ucs architecture is like this : 
Equipment  :
      Rack
  mount1

                 Servers

                        server 1

                        server 2

                         server 3

 

      Rack mount2

               Servers

                    server 1

                    server 2

                    server 3

                     . .

The name "server1" is the hardware name , so when we are getting alarm on server , we got this name "server1"  came from variable $monitor
We want to know what is the Operating System Server name  like FinanceServer1 
In order to solve this issue we write the "real server name"  on the "ucs central" 
at this location

- servers

      - general tab

         there is a  "Free text field "   called  User Label
we update this field via Powershell 
Connect-ucs ipaddress
server1 = Get-ucsServer$
And Updating this property   -    server1[0].UsrLbl$    

But the problem is that we are not able to get this field within cisco_ucs probe

Our IDEA :  when cisco_ucs probe access with Rest Api and get alarm on server level  like memory , disk ,
network. ........  ,  he will return the variable $monitor and  "User Label"  - server1[0].UsrLbl$   in variable
"$User_Label"  so we can show this variable on the alarm.
