Dell APEX Cloud Platform MC-760 Hardware Requirements and Specifications

Configuration validation

When the system is powered on, information about the following is obtained from the CPLD, and backplane memory maps and analyzed:

  • Installed cables
  • Risers
  • Backplanes
  • Power supplies
  • Floating card (fPERC, adapter PERC , BOSS)
  • Processor

This information forms a unique configuration. iDRAC maintains qualified configurations that are stored in a table. iDRAC compares the new configuration to the configurations in the table.

One or more sensors are assigned to each of the configuration elements. During POST, any configuration validation error is logged in the System Event Log (SEL) or LifeCycle (LC) log. The reported events are categorized in the configuration validation error table.

Table 1. Configuration validation errorThis table provides information about the Configuration validation errors.
