Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Device Type Filtering

The Device Type Filtering options are displayed in the Discover Devices wizard, if Guided Wizard is selected in Discovery Settings. This window enables you to select device types for discovery. After the device types are selected, the required protocols for discovering and managing the selected device types are added to the Discover Devices wizard. For example, if you select ESXi Host, SNMP Configuration and WS-Man Configuration options are added to the wizard. The following table describes the fields displayed in the Device Type Filtering window.
  • NOTE: The device range that was discovered in the earlier version of OpenManage Essentials may have discovered both chassis and iDRAC using WS-Man protocol. In OpenManage Essentials version 2.5, if Discover the selected Device Types only option is enabled in Discovery settings, then only the specific device selected in the guided wizard will be discovered and other devices are classified as unknown devices. For example: Selecting iDRAC device type with WS-Man protocol will discover only iDRAC devices using WS-Man protocol.
Table 1. Device Type Filtering . The following table describes the fields displayed in the Device Type Filtering window.
