iDRAC version 126.96.36.199. When in iDRAC, I click Configuration > BIOS Settings and am presented an empty page. Did a search on internet, and found some images how the screen should look. How to resolve this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I would try another web browser, or restarting the iDRAC to see if that helps. You might also try clearing your cookies. Does the account that you're logging in with have system control permissions?
The BIOS (version 1.7.6) of a Poweredge R7415 has a couple of setting I don't understand. Not mentioned in the manual and the internet doesn't show much either. The settings are found under the Processor section and called
NUMA Distance Enumeration (default set to Physical)
MADT Core Enumeration (default set to Round Robin)
Minimum SEV-ES ASID (default set to 1)
What do they do and which values are recommended? Server runs Hyper-V 2016 with two VM's.
NUMA Distance Enumeration = Non-Uniform Memory Access. Distance enumeration is essentially a number showing how far the system will go with NUMA support. You can get more detail here: http://lse.sourceforge.net/numa/faq/
MADT Core Enumeration = Regard processor enumeration. You can read a bit more here: https://wiki.osdev.org/MADT
Minimum SEV-ES ASID = Secure Encrypted Virtualization with Encrypted State. It is a feature to protect a VM's processor activity in registers.
Default settings are generally fine, so I would leave them as is.
