Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

VLAN Configuration Management

The VLAN Configuration tab enables you to:

  • View details of the blade server and IOA fabric interconnect such as the blade server NIC port, the associated IOA fabric port, and the VLAN IDs.
    • NOTE: Even if there is no information available for the IOAs, the fabric status is shown as data in grid and values such as Slot is empty and Firmware or Mode is not supported.
  • Assign VLAN IDs to the IOAs within the chassis.
  • NOTE: If an already discovered IOA or server is moved from one chassis to another, removed from a chassis, or swapped within the chassis, you must delete and rediscover the chassis, servers, and the corresponding IOAs. Otherwise, the VLAN configuration inventory may display duplicate or incorrect data.
