SCOM and software req:

I the DELL MP manual for SCOM, Dell OpenManage Power Center and OpenManage Server Administrator is required together with Dell License Manager - Are those applications necessary for DELL monitoring or is it just a shortcut in actions for and can it just be  SNMP and SMASH.

In this case I have blades.

Re: SCOM and software req:

Dell Server Management Pack Suites from 5.0.1 onwards provide two types of flavors

for discovering Dell Servers.

Flavor1:::In-Band Monitoring

                     In-Band Monitoring is having a prerequisite that Dell OpenManage Server Administrator

needs to be installed on server that is to be discovered or monitored. It is license free feature.

Flavor2::Smiley Surprisedut-of-Band Monitoring

              Out-of-Band monitoring is a licensed feature. It doesn't require prerequisite of Dell

OpenMange Server Administrator. It can monitor the bare metal. For more information on monitoring

servers using Out-of-Band refer to Server 5.0.1 IG

The OMPC will give benefits like Gain precise control over energy consumption in your Dell™ data center with a software solution designed to help you measure and manage your usage.

The OMPC need to be installed on the server that need to be monitored.

If you install the OMPC you can launch the OMPC from SCOM console provided the server need to be discovered in state view/diagram view.

Re: SCOM and software req:

Management Node

              The node or server  that is to be managed or discovered or monitored.

               If you discover this node using IN-BAND then you need to install OpenManage Server             administrator in it.

              If you want to discover using Out-of-Band then no need to install anything even OS too. The bare metal will also get discovered if its iDRAC is kept on the network.

Management Server

              The node or server that has SCOM Management Server installed in it is called Management Server. This server with SCOM will discover the nodes(Management Nodes) that are reachable in the network where Management Server is present. Up on installation of Dell Server Suite the dell servers will get discovered under Dell state views/diagram views.
