Dell EMC iDRAC Service Module 3.1 User’s Guide

SupportAssist on the Box

SupportAssist saves time and streamlines the technical support cases. A collection based on an event creates an open service request with SupportAssist. Scheduled collections helps to monitor and maintain your environment. These collections include the hardware data, RAID controller logs, OS, and Application Data. The features supported are :
  • SupportAssist Registration — iSM supports the SupportAssist Registration. This is a one time activity. You can enter the required details such as name, email, address, and number to complete the registration.

  • SupportAssist Collection— The SupportAssist Collection feature in iDRAC collects information about the hardware, OS and relevant application data and compresses this information.
SupportAssist also provides:
  • Proactive issue identification
  • Automated case creation
  • Support contact initiated by a Dell technical support agent
  • NOTE: You must complete the registration to take the advantages of SupportAssist.

You can view the following items in the SupportAssist dashboard.

Service Request Summary

On the Service Requests tab, you can also view the list of requests created and the status, description, source, service request ID, date opened, the date closed, and so on.

If you click the Collection Log tab, you can view the collection time, job ID, collection type, data collected, collection status, sent time, and so on.
