Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Support For PowerEdge FX Chassis Sleds

The sleds that can be installed in the PowerEdge FX2 and PowerEdge FX2s chassis may vary. The following are the types of sleds and their support in OpenManage Essentials:
  • Compute sleds — Require discovery and inventory for getting the inventory information and other functionality. Discovery and classification of these sleds can be performed using OMSA (in-band) or iDRAC (out-of-band).
  • Storage sleds — These sleds are not discoverable and are not displayed in the device tree, device summary, or any typical locations for a device. The storage sled is displayed in the Chassis View and the storage sled inventory is displayed in the chassis inventory page.
  • Sleds with multiple compute nodes — An example of this type of sled is the PowerEdge FM120x4 sled which contains four compute nodes. If the compute nodes of the sled are discovered, they are displayed in the device tree under: All Devices > Modular Systems > PowerEdge FX > Chassis Group > Sled Group > Server Node . Each compute node is displayed under the corresponding sled. The Sled Group name in the device tree can be edited if necessary.
    • NOTE: For in-band (without OMSA) discovery and monitoring of the PowerEdge FM120x4 sled, ensure that either the WMI or SSH protocol is enabled and setup.
  • NOTE: The sleds installed in a PowerEdge FX chassis are sorted based on the device name and not on the slot number in the device tree.
