I receive email alerts when a power supply has been disconnected or the system has been shutdown or unplugged etc although i cannot receive any alerts if i unplug a disk, is that a limitation of the alerting or is something miss configured?
I did have to enable Platform Events on the DRAC5 to receive the power supply alert.
Any info appreciated.
I thought I posted a reply, but it looks like it didn't go through.
Anyway, did you install OMSS (storage) as well as OMSA (Server Administrator) on the managed node? You can see this if you look at the Agent table in the inventory from the server on the device tree.
I think you need to install OMSS (an option when you install OMSA I think) to get disk alerts. I'll try to find out more info on this. But start with that.
We also want to make certain you are getting your in-band SNMP alerts properly. Did you edit your SNMP settings in the Microsoft Services.msc properties to point the SNMP traps to the ip address or host name of your OME server? This step is detailed in the OME First Time Setup Tutorial in the tutorial section. Can you check that as well?
The DRAC 5 will not send storage alerts.
All good, the OM server agent in the latest update resolved the issue. Is there anyway to get away from SNMP alerts? I do not really want to configure SNMP windows service on all our servers.
Is there an online reference of the types of alerts OM offers with each product/service somewhere?
see if this helps.

SNMP is still king :-)
Some folks use Windows group policies to do the SNMP configuration settings on lots of boxes.
hah when you receive over 90,000 events in the application log in the span of 2 minutes for EVENTID 3006 installing the broadcom snmp agent that bundles with OMSA
Here is some info on how to configure SNMP using group policies. I'm sure there is MS doc on this on the web, so I'd look at that as well to understand more detail. But here is a rough idea:
SNMP Configuration using Group Policies
This tutorial will guide you through an alternate method for configuring SNMP for servers using Group Policies.
To configure all of your servers SNMP settings using Group Policies:
1. First make sure all your servers have the SNMP service installed.
2. On your domain controller, start the Group Policy Management Console: Start | run | gpmc.msc
3. Create a new Group Policy Object (GPO) by right clicking Group Policy Objects | New
4. Name your policy 'Dell SNMP Configuration'.
5. Right click the new GPO and click Edit.
6. In the new window, go to: Dell SNMP Configuration | Computer Configuration | Policies | Administrative Templates... | Network | SNMP
7. Edit Communities to include your community.
8. Edit Permitted Managers to include the OpenManage Essentials server.
9. Edit Traps for public community to include the OpenManage Essentials server.
Note: To edit any of the settings:
1) Right click on the setting and select Edit.
2) Click the Enabled radio button.
3) Click Show… to edit the settings and Ok when finished editing.
4) Click Apply when finished.
10. Finally, link the new 'Dell SNMP Configuration' GPO to the OU of the servers you wish to manage with OpenManage Essentials.
1) Browse to the OU you want to apply this GPO to.
2) Right click and select 'Link an Existing GPO'.
3) Select the 'Dell SNMP Configuration' GPO.
Note: Please allow a minimum of 120 minutes for the settings to take effect before attempting to discover your servers.
Are you talking about the app log on OME or the managed node?
What version of OMSA and Broadcom driver are you using?
The app log on the managed node during installation of OMSA 6.5.0. Broadcom driver 10.100.4.0.
The installation of OMSA actually takes the NIC down, the only way to fix it is to disable and re-enable the nic. Preferably a reboot and the same
