OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter Version 5.2 User's Guide

Edit system profile

It is recommended that you use Google Chrome to create or edit System Profile.
  1. On the Create System Profile page, select a System Profile, and then click EDIT.
  2. On the Name and Description page, change the profile name and description. The description is optional.
    NOTE After creating the Basic or Advanced system profile, you cannot modify the profiles.
  3. On the Reference Server page, to change the reference server that is either a host or a bare-metal, click SELECT.
    The server selection may be disabled because of any of the following reasons:
    • The server is either a noncompliant host or bare-metal server.
    • A deployment job is either scheduled or running on the server.
    • The server is managed using the chassis credential profile.
    The Extract Confirmation dialog box is displayed.
  4. To extract the system configuration from the reference server, click OK.
    Extracting the system configuration from the reference server might take few minutes.
  5. Review the reference server details, and click NEXT.
    • To change the reference server on the Select Reference Server page, click BROWSE. If the reference server is of bare-metal type, only its iDRAC IP is displayed. If the reference server itself is a host server, both the iDRAC and host (FQDN) IPs are displayed.
    The Profile Settings page is displayed.
  6. On the Profile Settings page, you can view or modify the profile settings for the components such as iDRAC, BIOS, RAID, NIC, CNA, FCoE, and EvenFilters based on the configuration of the reference server.
    By default, platform-specific and read-only attributes are not listed. For more information about platform-specific attributes, see System specific attributes.
    If you try to modify few attributes, the following warning message is displayed:

    These attributes may affect other dependent attributes, or are destructive in nature, or dissolve server identity, or affect security of the target servers.

    NOTE After you edit the system profile, if the password of iDRAC users that is used to discover the bare-metal server is modified and the updated password is ignored. The updated password is replaced with password that is used to discover the bare-metal servers.
    1. Expand each component to view the setting options such as Instance, attribute name, value, destructive, dependency, and group.
      If the dependency text is not available, a blank field is displayed.
    2. It is mandatory to set the values for attributes marked with red exclamation mark. This option is available only for the iDRAC enabled user with valid username.
  7. Click NEXT.
    The Summary page displays information about the profile details and the attribute statistics of the system configurations.

    The total number of attributes, total number of enabled attributes, and total number of destructive attributes are displayed under the attribute statistics.

  8. Click FINISH.
    The saved profile is displayed on the System Profile page.

    Some attributes of System Profile are overridden for the OMIVV to be functional. For more information about customized attributes, see Customization attributes. For more information about the System Profile configuration template, attributes, and workflow, see Additional information.
