Dell EMC iDRAC Service Module

Dell EMC iDRAC Service Module 2.5

For 12th and 13th-Generation PowerEdge Servers

iDRAC Service Module (iSM) is a lightweight piece of software that runs on the Server and expands iDRAC management into supported host operating systems. Installing the iDRAC Service Module is optional, though highly recommended. The Service Module does not expose any new interfaces of its own, rather it complements iDRAC with additional data that users can work with using iDRAC consoles such as the GUI, RACADM and WSMAN. iDRAC Service Module monitoring features can be individually enabled/disabled to achieve a fine level of Server OS resource control for the unique integration needs of a customer environment.

Note: For the latest 14th-Generation server models please go to www.dell.com/support and choose your specific model for the specific iSM version required.
