View hardware compliance report

To view the cluster/server hardware compliance report, in OpenManage Integration extension, click View > Compliance > Hardware Updates, and then click Check Compliance. The extension generates and displays the compliance report in the Hardware Compliance Summary section.

The donut chart displays the overall compliance summary in percentage using different color codes. The bar chart displays the number of components in compliant, urgent/critical, recommended, and optional states using different color codes.

To view compliance information for each component, click View Report. A window appears on the right side that displays node level component compliance status. You can expand or collapse node and it's component level information. To filter components based on compliance status, click the color codes available below the bar chart.

The bar chart represents the number of components in compliant, urgent, recommended, and optional states using color codes. The Compliance Report provides a detailed view of all the components that contains component name, current version, type, baseline version, compliance status, criticality, and compliance type. Select clear at the upper right of the "Compliance Report" pane to remove the color code filter.

Along with compliance information, the license status (OMIWAC Premium License) for each node is also displayed.
NOTE: All cluster nodes must have valid licenses, otherwise, you cannot proceed to fix the compliance. For more information, see OpenManage Integration with Microsoft Windows Admin Center Licensing.
NOTE: If the catalog does not contain updates to a component, then the component is not displayed in the generated compliance report.

Compliance Specifies compliance type whether compliant or non-compliant.
  • Compliant - Node components have the same versions of Firmware, BIOS, and Driver as of the Dell catalog.
  • Non-Compliant - Node components require Firmware, BIOS, and Drivers updates as they do not match with Dell recommended configurations.
Criticality Specifies whether compliance is urgent, recommended, or optional.
  • Urgent - The update contains changes to improve the reliability and availability of the Dell system or related component. Therefore, apply this update immediately.
  • Recommended - The update contains feature enhancements or changes that help keep the system software current and compatible with other system modules (Firmware, BIOS, and Drivers).
  • Optional - The update contains changes that impact only certain configurations, or provides new features that may/may not apply to the environment. Review the update specifications to determine if it applies to the system.
Current Version Specifies the current component version.
Baseline Version Specifies the version belongs to the imported catalog.

Compliance Type Specifies whether the component is Upgradable, Downgradable, or Same.
  • Upgradable: Component can be upgraded from the current version.
  • Downgradable: Component can be downgraded from the current version.
  • Same: Component current verison is same as the baseline version.
NOTE: In the compliance report, the compliance type of Microsoft basic display adapter Driver may show as downgradable. After you update (downgrade), the name of the driver will change to Matrox G200eW3 (Nuvoton) WDDM <version no.> Driver. This an expected behavior.
