The Dell Chassis Management Controller (CMC) for Dell EMC PowerEdge M1000e chassis is a systems management hardware and software solution for managing multiple Dell server chassis. It is a hot-pluggable card that is installed at the back of Dell PowerEdge M1000e chassis. The CMC has its own microprocessor and memory and is powered by the modular chassis into which it is plugged.
You can configure the M1000e chassis either with a single CMC, or with redundant CMCs. In redundant CMC configurations, if the primary CMC loses communication with the M1000e chassis or the management network, the standby CMC takes over chassis management.
You can configure CMC to send email alerts or SNMP trap alerts for warnings or errors related to temperature, hardware misconfiguration, power outage, and fan speed.
