Customers can choose to monitor Dell PowerEdge servers without software agents by leveraging agent-free, out-of-band technology through iDRAC7 with Lifecycle Controller or in-band with traditional OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA).  Customers who want to optimize for increased availability, efficiency and process automation will consider purchasing a license to enable the agent-free option. By using out-of-band management, IT administrators no longer need to install or periodically certify/validate OMSA agent installed on the server operating system. This out-of-band management technology allows IT administrators to effectively monitor Dell servers from any location, and without the use of agents. It accomplishes this regardless of operating system or hypervisor presence or state. Dell Smart Plug-in for HP Operations Manager is offered at no charge for customers who elect to monitor Dell PowerEdge servers (through OMSA agent installed on the server operating system), chassis, storage and networking devices.
