How to Manually Add Service Processors to NodeGrid via WebUI

Select Managed Devices :: Devices, click the Add button to add a device in the system. For the purpose of this example, provide the following information:

 

  • Enter the name of the server you want to add. This device should be a server that supports Service Processor.
  • Enter the IP address of the service processor on this server. Make sure the IP address is reachable by the NodeGrid Manager.
  • On the Type field, select type that matches the service processor profile in use (IPMI, ILO, ILOM, IMM, DRAC, iDRAC).
  • Enter username and password of the admin user account of the service processor, or select Ask During Login option if you want to provide admin credentials during the login time, and then click the Save

 

The server should now appear under Access page and it should be ready for access. For console access via SOL, you must also enable BIOS console redirect and OS console redirect (typically for Linux OS) on the server.

 

Further configuration on Managed Devices :: Devices is available in order to enable tunnel, monitoring, scripts, data logging, event logging, alerting and custom fields for this type of device.
