iDRAC7 and iDRAC8 SupportAssist utility can create a SupportAssist collection, also known as Technical Support Report (TSR). iDRAC provides an application interface for gathering platform information that enables support services to resolve platform and system problems. iDRAC generates a SupportAssist collection of the server and then exports the collection to a location on the management station (local), to a shared network location such as FTP, Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP), HTTP, HTTPS, Common Internet File System (CIFS) or Network File Share (NFS), or sends this collection to technical support for troubleshooting and inventory collection. The collection generates a standard ZIP file.
