Product Licensing & SKUs:

Dell Smart Plug-in for HP Operations Manager is available as a Software download offered at NO CHARGE for customers who elect monitoring Dell PowerEdge servers (10G through 13G) and Workstations via in-band (OMSA agent installed in the Operating System) method, chassis, storage and networking devices.

Customers who want to take advantage of Agent-free, Out-of-Band server management via iDRAC with LC, need to purchase a license key and then use the Dell Connections License Manager (DCLM) to import those licenses in order to monitor the server nodes. This out-of-band management technology allows IT administrators to effectively monitor Dell systems with increased availability from any location, and without the use of agents. It accomplishes this regardless of operating system or hypervisor presence or state.
