View OMIVV data center and cluster information

View overview of data center and cluster

You can view the information such as data center or cluster information, system lockdown mode, hardware resources, and warranty information. To view the information about this page, ensure that inventory is completed successfully. The OMIVV data center and cluster views directly report data from iDRAC.
  1. On the OMIVV home page, expand Menu, and then select Hosts and Clusters.
  2. In the left pane, select a data center or cluster, and then click Monitor > OMIVV Cluster or Datacenter Information.
  3. To view more information, select a specific host.

    The information such as iDRAC IP, Chassis URL, CPUs, and Memory are displayed in the lower-most horizontal pane of the page.
