Can anyone explain the DELL OpenManage suite to me - what components are there, and which do I need for simple monitoring and alerts from a DELL server
Posted on 2007-11-19
We have a number of DELL servers and I have the DELL OpenManage Server Administrator installed on each of the servers to monitor the hardware components status. I have alerts setup for events such a fan failure or exceeding the temperature threshold etc.
However I do not seem to be able to setup alerts on the storage components, i.e. to flag when a disk becomes degraded or fails or goes offline. I've heard that there is an OpenManage component called 'IT Administrator' that will monitor DELL servers remotely and allow alerts for failing disks... Does such a product exist? If so what is it called and what are it's capabilities?
