OME 2.2 auto discovery

  • Hi all, I'm in an environment with HP recently we've introduced Dell hardware, so far so good. 

    One issue I'm asking guidance for is discovery, can I auto discover hosts based by incoming snmp trap similar to HP SIM (where is a previously undiscovered host sends a trap the SIM server will discover and inventory it) or similar behaviour? 

    At the moment we have have servers being introduced in blocks so we can discover by IP range, in the future this might become messy when individual servers are introduced and the discovery task needs to be 1 by 1. I could discover by range or subnet to include ranges that will contain HP servers although this will become messy in the GUI with large numbers of unknown servers listed. 

    Thanks, Jason

  • Hi Jason,

    Thanks for the query.

    OME does not have the capability to auto discover server after receiving trap from it.

    For your requirement, setting up discovery ranges looks to be the way to go about discovering servers being received in batches. If you want to avoid unknowns which maybe HP servers, please do the following:

    You can change the discovery mode. When you click on Discovery Schedule, there are two options, discover All Devices and Instrumented Devices, if you select instrumented devices, then during discovery you will get only those devices discovered which have a Dell instrumentation.

    Thanks,

  • HI Shivendra K, thanks for your reply selecting Intstrumented devices is the answer, that's allowed me to at least add subnets and only detect relevant Dell hardware. 

    Many thanks for the info. 

  • Great to know you can adopt the work-around.

    Thanks,
