Im trying to get OME to work properly. and i believe i might not have setup my Chassis/server dracs correctly.
The Chassis's CMC is detected correctly, but none of my M805 blades are detected at all.
I dont have OMSA installed, since they all are esxi hosts, but i wanted to atleast get drac information.
The following firmware versions are running:
idracs on blades, 1.60
Firmware on blades 2.3.3
DarkingDK - you have to put the IPs for the DRACs and blade servers into discovery as well - simply discovering and inventorying the CMCs will not put the rest of the components in for you - as helpful and nice as that would be.
I both scan the ip's (we have a management network, and i scan the entire range), and i also tried giving it both ws-man and ipmi credentials, but no such luck. I assume the credentials it wants is the ones used to login to the cards (in my case the default root/calvin).
Unfortunately no luck.
Could you enlighten me as to where to enable it?
I get the following error when using the troubleshooting tool (thanks for that advice, did not know it existed!)
WSMAN Not recognized error.
Good to know that your issue is resolved.
To summerize, you can discover DRACs using IPMI or SNMP. For discovering ESXi servers you use WS-MAN.
For Windows servers you can use SNMP or WMI.
For Linux and classic ESX servers you use SNMP.
You will have to include the blade server IPs along with the CMC IP in the discovery range for all the blades to show up under modular chassis group.
In the iDrac console, you can find the setting under iDrac Settings->Network/Security->Services under the SNMP Agent table. You can enable it and set the community string for the same.
