About this task

For Services to manage and collect system information from servers, ensure that:

● For iDRAC7 or iDRAC8 based servers, Enterprise or Express license is installed on the server. For iDRAC9 based servers,

Basic, Enterprise, or Express license is installed on the server. For information about purchasing and installing an Enterprise or Express license, see the "Managing Licenses" section in the iDRAC User's Guide at www.dell.com/idracmanuals

● OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) is installed and running on the managed PowerEdge devices. Services uses the

OMSA agent only to monitor the servers that are discovered in OpenManage Enterprise using the protocols used for in-band device management.

Prerequisites for managing network switches

About this task

For Services to manage network devices, it must be discovered using the SSH protocol in OpenManage Enterprise. The network devices that are not discovered using SSH protocol are moved to staging in Services.

To discover or rediscover the network devices using SSH protocol, do the following while creating a device discovery job in

OpenManage Enterprise.

Steps

1. In the Create Discovery Job dialog box, from the Device Type drop-down menu, select NETWORKING SWITCH .

2. In the IP/Hostname/Range box, enter the IP address, hostname, or the range of IP address of the network switches to be discovered.

3. Click Additional Settings .

The Additional Settings dialog box is displayed.

4. In the SSH section, select the SSH Info check box, and do the following:

● Enter the username and password for SSL authentication.

● In the Enable Password box, enter the password that you have set on the network devices to access the privileged

Exec mode.

NOTE: The enable password is required only when the networking device is configured with a password to access the privileged Exec mode.

For the detailed steps on creating a discovery job, see the section Discovering devices for monitoring or management in

Online Help or OpenManage Enterprise user's guide .
