The Dell Chassis Management Controller (CMC) for Dell EMC PowerEdge VRTX is a Systems Management hardware and software solution for managing the PowerEdge VRTX chassis. The CMC has its own microprocessor and memory and is powered by the modular chassis into which it is plugged.
You can configure the PowerEdge VRTX chassis either with a single CMC, or with redundant CMCs. In redundant CMC configurations, if the primary CMC loses communication with the chassis or the management network, a standby CMC takes over the chassis management.
You can configure CMC to send email alerts or SNMP trap alerts for warnings or errors such as temperature, hardware misconfiguration, power outage, fan speed, and blowers.
