OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter Version 5.2 User's Guide

Create chassis credential profile

  • To create a chassis credential profile, you must have the following privileges:
    • M1000e, VRTX, and FX2 chassis—Read and Set SNMP trap destination
    • PowerEdge MX chassis—Administrator
  • Before using the Active Directory (AD) credentials with a host credential profile, ensure that:

    • The user account exists in AD.
    • The CMC or OME-Modular is configured for AD-based authentication.
  • For PowerEdge MX chassis, ensure that you have at least single MX host in the registered vCenter to make the test connection successful.
  1. On the OMIVV home page, click Compliance & Deployment > Chassis Credential Profile > CREATE NEW PROFILE.
  2. On the Chassis Credential Profile page of the wizard, read the instructions, and then click GET STARTED.
  3. On the Name and Credentials page, do the following:
    1. Enter profile name and description. The description is optional.
    2. In the User name text box, enter the username with administrative rights, which is typically used to log in to the Chassis Management Controller (CMC) or OpenManage Enterprise-Modular (OME-Modular).
    3. In the Password text box, enter the password.
    4. In the Verify Password text box, enter the same password that you have entered in the Password text box. The passwords must match.
  4. On the Select Chassis page, select an individual chassis or multiple chassis using the check boxes next to the IP/Host Name column, and then click OK.
    The selected chassis is displayed on the Associated Chassis page. To add or remove the chassis from the associated chassis list, click ADD CHASSIS.

    If the selected chassis is already associated with a chassis credential profile, the following message is displayed:

    Selecting a chassis currently associated to another profile will remove the chassis from that Chassis Credential Profile. A chassis credential profile without associated chassis will be deleted.

    For example, you have a profile Test associated with Chassis A. If you create another profile Test 1 and try to associate Chassis A to Test 1, a warning message is displayed.

    Test connection runs automatically for the selected chassis.

    Test connection runs automatically:

    • For the first time after the chassis is selected.
    • When you change the credentials
    • If the chassis is newly selected

    The test result is displayed in the Test Results section as Passed or Failed. To test the chassis connectivity manually, select the chassis and click BEGIN TEST.

    For a PowerEdge MX chassis configured with an MCM group, it is recommended that you manage all the lead and member chassis using the lead chassis. The member chassis test connection operation fails, and test result status is indicated as Fail. The lead chassis IP link is displayed. Click the lead chassis IP link to discover the complete MCM group.

  5. Click FINISH.
    Ensure that you have at least one successfully validated chassis to complete the tasks in the wizard. Only successfully validated chassis can be associated with a chassis credential profile.

    To add the PowerEdge MX chassis, see Add PowerEdge MX Chassis.
