Use the Dell OpenManage Connection for IBM Tivoli Network Manager to monitor Dell PowerEdge servers (ninth through twelfth generation), PowerEdge VRTX CMC, M1000e Blade Server Chassis CMC, and PowerVault and EqualLogic storage devices from within the IBM Tivoli Network Manager (ITNM) console. This connection will help customers monitor Dell devices in environments managed by the ITNM console. It allows an ITNM administrator to discover Dell devices (servers, storage, chassis and remote access controllers) and then monitor their health. It also supports device specific one-to-one console launch and Dell Tools launch from Dell device nodes in the ITNM console. In addition, alerts generated as part of polling will be shown in the integrated OMNIbus console.
