Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Configuring OpenManage Essentials

If you are logging on to OpenManage Essentials for the first time, the First Time Setup tutorial is displayed. The tutorial provides step-by-step instructions for setting up an environment of servers and devices to communicate with OpenManage Essentials. The steps include:
  • Configuring the SNMP protocol on each target server.
  • Installing SNMP tools (for Windows Server 2012 or later).
  • Installing OpenManage Server Administrator on each target server.
  • Enabling network discovery (for Windows Server 2008-based servers) on each target server.
  • Discovering devices on your network.

After you have completed the First Time Setup wizard, the Discovery Wizard Configuration window is displayed. See Discovery Wizard Configuration .

The date and time displayed in the console is in a format that is selected in the browser settings and used in the region. When a time zone change or daylight savings change occurs, the time is updated accordingly in the console. Changing time zones or daylight savings, changes the time in the console, but does not change the time in the database.
