  • RAC
    • NOTE: If a DRAC or iDRAC is discovered, it is displayed under the RAC group and not under the Servers group. If both DRAC and iDRAC, and their corresponding server are discovered, they are correlated into a single device. The device is then displayed under both RAC and Servers group.
    • NOTE: If the RAC on a PowerEdge C server is discovered using IPMI, it is displayed under OOB Unclassified devices.
  • Repurpose and Bare Metal
    • NOTE: Devices in the Repurpose and Bare Metal group are displayed as targets for device configuration deployment. You must explicitly add devices to this group for deploying a device configuration. On bare metal deployments, you can remove the devices from the Repurpose and Bare Metal group after the deployment is complete. For more information, see Server Deployment and Re-provisioning .
