MANAGEMENT SOLUTION FOR 9TH-GENERATION POWEREDGE SERVERS RUNNING NETWARE 6.5
Reference architecture, step-by-step implementation, support
The server hardware subsystem comprises all hardware components located in the PowerEdge server chassis with the exception of the SAS RAID controllers and the SAS hard drives. The storage subsystem comprises the internal SAS RAID controllers and drives.
The server hardware subsystem is being monitored by the Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) and/or the Dell Remote Access Card (DRAC). The BMC is a standard component for 9th-generation servers. The DRAC implementation for 9th-generation servers is named DRAC5 and it is an optional component. The customer can choose between BMC and DRAC5 depending on existing management infrastructure, previous experience on using one versus the other, etc. It is highly recommended to use only one of the two, not both, because of potentially confusing alert information.
