Monitoring idrac availability

Does anyone have a good method to monitor the availability of a remote drac?

It seems that whenever I need to access the server's drac via a web browser I discover it is not responding. Just hoping that someone has a method to monitor possibly using Server Administrator with an email alert.

This has happened on various firmware, drac version's and using various browsers.

Thank You

RE: Monitoring idrac availability


The monitoring tools vary with the age and model of the servers. The older servers you would be able to set up SMTP alerts using OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) along with OpenManage IT Assistant (OMITA). Where as newer servers would only require the use of OMSA.

If you clarify the model and age range I could provide you with the links.

Let me know.
