Prerequisites:
  • You are logged in to Microsoft Windows Admin Center as a Gateway Administrator.
  • You must have installed the Dell EMC OpenManage Integration with Microsoft Windows Admin Center (OMIMSWAC) extension. For more information about the installation procedure, see the Dell EMC OpenManage Integration with Microsoft Windows Admin Center Installation Guide at Dell.com/OpenManageManuals.
  • You have added failover or hyper-converged cluster connections in Microsoft Windows Admin Center. For more information about adding failover or hyper-converged cluster connections, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/understand/windows-admin-center.
  • Ensure that all the cluster nodes are reachable using IP address, hostname, or Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) before managing the cluster with OMIMSWAC.
