This article provides information about exporting the SupportAssist Collection, including the Operating System, Application Data, and the RAID controller logs via the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 9 (iDRAC 9) web interface of Dell 14th generation of PowerEdge servers, Datacenter Scalable Servers and Precision workstations.
To access the documentation for your iDRAC, go to www.dell.com/idracmanuals, click on your iDRAC generation, then the installed firmware version and then Manuals & documents.
If the iDRAC Service Module (iSM) is installed and running in the host operating system, you can manually generate the SupportAssist Collection including OS information. The iDRAC Service Module invokes the appropriate OS collector on the host operating system, collects the data, and transfers to iDRAC. You can then save the data to the required location. To generate the SupportAssist collection manually:
After logging into the iDRAC web interface, go to Maintenance (Fig.1)
Then choose tab SupportAssist (Fig. 1).
Click Start a Collection (Fig. 1).

Click Collect to proceed with Collection generation.
