Dell EMC OpenManage Integration Version 1.1.0 with Microsoft Windows Admin Center User’s Guide

Update PowerEdge servers and nodes of HCI and Failover clusters

OpenManage Integration with Microsoft Windows Admin Center (OMIMSWAC) allows you to generate compliance details and update components, such as BIOS, driver, firmware, and/or system management applications of target nodes and nodes in an HCI and failover clusters. You can use either an online or offline catalog to generate compliance details and update components.

In OMIMSWAC, click Update. The update window is displayed.

On this page, you can generate a compliance report and update the components as follows:

  1. Generate compliance report: Select update source catalog (online or offline catalog) to fetch the update details for each device and generate a compliance report.
  2. Verify compliance report and confirm component selection: Verify the generated compliance report. By default, all the non-compliant components (excluding downgradable component) are selected. Select or clear any components you want to update and then confirm the components selection.
  3. Update: Update the target node or cluster.

To generate compliance report and update a target node, see update target node. To generate compliance report and update nodes of HCI and Failover cluster, see update nodes of HCI and failover clusters.

OpenManage Integration uses online or offline catalog to create baselines. The catalog contains latest BIOS, driver, firmware, and/or system management applications. The system management application might include IC, Driver Pack, iSM, OMSA and so on. OpenManage Integration also uses the Dell EMC System Update Utility (DSU) and Dell EMC Inventory Collector (IC) tools to fetch the update details for each device. The DSU and IC tools help to generate compliance report and remediate the non-compliant devices by updating them.

When offline or online catalog is selected, OMIMSWAC collects the DSU and IC tools configured in Settings > Update Tools. To configure Update Tools, see Configure the update compliance tools setting. If DSU and IC tools are not configured in the Settings, then OMIMSWAC with Internet access will download them from www.downloads.dell.com.

In the Notifications section of the Windows Admin center, you are notified when a new online or offline catalog file is available. To generate the latest compliance report, on the Update tab, run Update Compliance Report.
