  • NOTE: For full functionality of chassis support in OpenManage Essentials, the chassis and the associated devices must be discovered using the appropriate protocols.
  • NOTE: OpenManage Essentials supports in-band (OMSA) and out-of-band (iDRAC) discovery of the following PowerEdge C-Series servers only: PowerEdge C4130, PowerEdge C6320, PowerEdge C6320p, and PowerEdge C6420.
  • NOTE: OpenManage Essentials supports discovery of Dell Precision Rack 7910 and 7920 clients with WMI protocol similar to the discovery of other client devices. If the Dell Precision Rack 7910 and 7920 clients are discovered using iDRAC (out-of-band discovery), then these devices are classified as Servers under Manage > Devices > All Devices > RAC .
  • NOTE: You can also perform discovery and inventory of a server out-of-band (iDRAC) using the credentials of the iDRAC user account that has Read Only privileges. However, you cannot perform operations that require elevated privileges such as system update, device configuration deployment, and so on.
