i have two M1000e enclosures need to discover via Dell MOE version 2.0 but i cant
i used both SNMP and WS-Management protocols
also enabled notification to be sent from the enclosure console itself
note: enclosures firmware is 4.50
can you help me discover the M1000e through dell open manage essentials 2.0?
With enclosure firmware 4.5 you will be able to discover the M1000E using only SNMP protocol? If you want to use WSMAN and get more details, you need to upgrade the firmware to 5.0 or above.
Let us know how it goes.
thanks for your advise
i have also ESXi hosts installed in the Blade servers itself and i know it should use WS-Management protocol to be discovered
thats mean i should upgrade firmware of enclosure to 5 at least?
or there is no relation between iDRACs of Blade Servers and the M1000e enclosure which contain them?
The discovery of blade and enclosure is not related. If you want to discover the enclosure using WSMAN, then the firmware should be 5.0 and above. For the blade to be discovered you can use WSMAN if it is an idrac7 or above. iDRAC 6 has limited support. If you want to discover the ESXi host, you can use WSMAN with the host credentials. make sure OMSA is installed on the host.
