OpenManage Essentials employs rapid and consistent template–based deployment and configuration of bare-metal servers and Converged Platforms, then auto-maintains them to your baseline-settings. Utilizing the Server Configuration Management feature, a fee-based licensed feature for Dell PowerEdge servers, you can define specific settings for existing or soon-to-be installed servers based on service tags, schedule server and OS deployments as well as agent-free updates, and quickly detect and remediate if configurations drift from user-defined settings.
