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

Update target nodes

By using OpenManage Integration with Windows Admin Center, you can view the compliance report (BIOS, driver, firmware, and/or system management application) and update the components of target nodes.

Compliance and update prerequisites

Before you generate a compliance report and update components, ensure the following:

  • Software and hardware requirements listed in the compatibility matrix of the Installation Guide are met.
  • To manage a target node, connect to the target node using Manage as option and provide appropriate target node administrator credentials. And ensure that the user is part of the local user group of gateway administrators. For more information about selecting "Manage as", see the "Get Started with Windows Admin Center" section in the Microsoft documentation.
  • Take care of the workload before updating the target node.
  • Ensure that inventory information for the target node has been retrieved.
  • Ensure that iDRAC lockdown mode is disabled. To disable iDRAC system lockdown mode, see iDRAC documents.
  • For SAS-RAID_Driver, ensure the followings:
    • Set the SATA controller to RAID mode.
    • Set the NVMe PCIe SSDs to RAID mode.

      For more information about setting the RAID mode, see Appendix

  • Ensure that the WAC is not installed on the target node you want to update.
  • Ensure that the target node is reachable using IP address, hostname, and Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the target node.
    NOTE: If the target node is not reachable, and the target node update is performed, the update status may show failed. In this case, if you reboot the target node immediately after update and rerun the compliance, the target node components status may show compliant, whereas the overall target node update status may still show failed.
NOTE: Updating a target node where WAC is installed is not recommended. To support this scenario, install the WAC on another target node (non WAC related) and complete the update.
NOTE: While the compliance or update is in progress, it is not allowed to run any further compliance or update task for the same target node that includes the update requests from the MS WAC Update tools.
