This article explains how to register the SupportAssist module embedded in the internal Dell Remote Access Controllers version 9 (iDRAC9) of Dell PowerEdge 14G and Datacenter Scalable Solutins servers.
For enabling the automated, proactive and predictive features of SupportAssist for a system, a registration is required. Generating and saving a SupportAssist Collection locally or to a network share for maintenance purpose is possible even without registration.
Find additional information about your iDRAC in the User Manual matching to the installed firmware.

Now click on the Connectivity tab (Fig. 1)
