What kind of thing are you looking for?
Since there are no hardware items to report on, no array controller, no fans, etc. No Dell drivers for NIC's or anything else, not sure what value there would be other than a simple up/down ping.
We handle that via a different alerting tool.
Not sure but I think you are looking for.

Thanks a lot for the detailed info.
Just a little update on this query.
I have deployed and tested Dell management pack for vRealize Operations Manager with Dell OMIVV but it only allows monitoring if servers are ESX or ESXi hosts.
Specifically i want my Dell servers (which are Hyper-V hosts) to be monitored in vRealize Operations Manager(vROPS).
So I was wondering if there was a management pack or something along those lines that would allow data from Hyper-V hosts to be collected and displayed in vROPS?
