PowerEdge FX Chassis View

By default, the PowerEdge FX2 and FX2s chassis are classified in the device tree under All Devices > Modular Systems > PowerEdge FX. The compute sleds installed in the PowerEdge FX chassis, when discovered, are displayed under the appropriate PowerEdge FX device group in the device tree.

When a PowerEdge FX chassis is selected in the device tree, a graphical representation ( Chassis View) of the front of the chassis is displayed in the device details page. The inventory information of the chassis is displayed under the Chassis View.

  • NOTE: The Chassis View is only displayed if the PowerEdge FX chassis is discovered using the WS-Man protocol, and at least one of the slots is occupied by a sled.

Tool Tip and Device Selection

Moving the mouser pointer over a slot on the chassis displays a yellow rectangular box around the slot and a tool tip.
  • NOTE: The tool tip is only displayed if the slot has a sled installed.
The information displayed in the tool tip varies based on the discovery and inventory status of the sleds. If a sled that contains multiple compute nodes (For example, PowerEdge FM120x4) is discovered and inventoried, the tool tip displays the:
  • Slot name
  • Health status
  • Connection status
If any other compute sled is discovered and inventoried and for storage sleds, the tool tip displays the:
  • Slot name
  • Sled model
  • Service Tag
  • Asset tag
  • Health status
  • Connection status
To select a slot, click the visual representation of the sled in the Chassis View. When a slot is selected, a yellow rectangular box is displayed around the sled.
  • If a slot with a compute sled is selected, the sled inventory, if available, is displayed under the Chassis View .
  • If slot with a sled that contains multiple compute nodes is selected, a summary of discovered devices (nodes) is displayed under the Chassis View. To view the inventory information of a node, double-click the node in the summary.
  • If a slot with a storage sled is selected, the chassis inventory information is displayed under the Chassis View. The storage sled inventory information is displayed in the chassis inventory.
  • NOTE: Complete inventory information of a sled is displayed only if the chassis and sled are discovered using the appropriate protocol.
  • NOTE: If a sled is selected in the device tree, the Chassis View is not displayed. To display the Chassis View, click the PowerEdge FX chassis in the device tree.

Overlays

If a slot is occupied and the compute sled is discovered, by default, the health status of the compute sled is overlaid in the Chassis View. The following are the available overlay options and their descriptions.
Table 1. Overlays. The following table lists the available overlay options and their descriptions.
Overlay OptionOverlay ColorDevice Status
Health StatusRedWarning

Connection StatusDark grayOff (disconnected)

NoneNo overlayNot applicable
  • NOTE: The health and connection status of a compute sled requires that the sled is discovered. If a sled is not discovered or the status of the sled is unknown, the health and connection status are displayed as normal.
The health status of the sled that contains multiple compute nodes reflects the health status of the compute node with most critical severity. For example, if one compute node is in a Warning state and the remaining compute nodes are in a Critical state, the sled displays Critical status.
  • NOTE: The Chassis Management at Server Mode option of the PowerEdge FX chassis can be used to configure rack style management. If rack style management is disabled on a PowerEdge FX chassis, the health status roll-up of the chassis is not updated in OpenManage Essentials. Also, alerts generated from the PSU and fan are not received in OpenManage Essentials.

Right-Click Actions

The right-click action on any compute sled that is discovered and available in the device tree is the same as when you right-click the sled in the device tree.
  • NOTE: Right-click actions are not available for sleds that contain multiple compute nodes and storage sleds.

Navigation Trail

The navigation trail is displayed as a link under the Chassis View and indicates the currently selected device. You can click a device name in the navigation trail to go back to the chassis inventory.
