SupportAssist is now available for monitoring up to 20 PowerEdge devices, no systems management console required. Once downloaded, this free software shares the same automated proactive features as in previous versions of this support tool. SupportAssist is designed with automated proactive features to help streamline support process steps, maintain system health, and identify failures faster with 24x7x365 monitoring plus automatic case creation and contact from Dell Technical Support, depending on warranty entitlement.

  • Designed for monitoring up to 20 PowerEdge servers that operate with Windows or Linux OS
  • Easy set-up with automatic installation of OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) for monitored devices
