Initial Configuration via DHCP Server Before entering the Dell Remote Management Console, you need to connect the DHCP server in the subnet to which it is physically connected. If a DHCP server is found, it may provide a valid IP address, gateway address and net mask.
Remote Management Console Overview Open a web browser and type in your identified IP. The IP address can be found using your DHCP server. A dialog box prompts you to enter Username and Password. Enter the following values: Username: root Password: root NOTE: The default user name and password are in lower-case characters.
Enter Dell Remote Management Console After you successfully log into your Dell Remote Management Console, the Remote Management Console GUI appears. Properties Properties displays the firmware version of current remote client system.
Configuration Network You can view and modify the network settings on this screen. Select whether to obtain an IP address automatically or configure one manually. It is recommended to use DHCP if your environment has a DHCP server. You can set DHCP (obtain the IP address automatically) or STATIC IP (configure the IP address manually).
Services You can configure the web server parameters (such as, HTTP Port Number, HTTPS Port Number, and Timeout) on a remote computer. By default, the timeout is 5 for the Max Sessions and 1 for the Active Sessions. When you finish the configuration, click Apply Changes.
IPMI This screen contains two sections: IPMI Serial and IPMI Settings. IPMI Serial There are three serial configuration in IPMI Serial: Connection Mode Settings, Baud Rate, and Channel Privilege Level Limit. The Connection Mode Settings allows user to select the Console redirection type and to manage the system from a remote location.
IPMI Settings IPMI Settings provides remote configuration over LAN. To activate IPMI remote configuration by LAN, check Enable IPMI Over LAN option, define the Channel Privilege Level Limit, and enter the Encryption Key. When you finish the configuration, click Apply Changes.
Updates The firmware can be updated remotely. To update firmware, follow the instruction below: 1. Select the file on your local system using Browse. 2. Click Update to delete the current version and update to the new version.
Server Information Power Control The Power Control allows you to power on/off/cycle the remote host system. Additionally you can see the remote power status. To perform the power control operation, select the operation and click Apply Changes.
Power Consumption This screen displays information on the system power consumption. The information includes Current Power Consumption, Power Consumption Monitoring Start Date, Max/Min Power Consumption, and Average Power Consumption.
GPU Power Consumption This screen displays the status of GPU power consumption. Each sensor displays different color to indicate the health status of a specified GPU device. The green color indicates the device is healthy and there’s no sensor that has any alert. The yellow color indicates the device has at least one sensor that has warning alert.
Thermal This screen displays the Fans and Temperatures sensors of a remote host system. Click Refresh to update current health status for both Fans and Temperatures. The green color indicates the device is healthy and there’s no sensor that has any alert. The yellow color indicates the device has at least one sensor that has a warning alert.
System Event Log System Event Log: It records the event when sensor has an abnormal state. When the log matches the pre-defined alert, the system sends out the notification automatically, if it is pre-configured.
Platform Events A platform event filter (PEF) can trigger an action and generate an alert when a critical hardware-related event occurs. For each PEF, you can choose the action to be taken when a platform event occurs. You can also choose to generate and send an alert when a platform event occurs. In the Platform Events screen, you can enable the generation of platform event alerts globally by clicking Global Alerting Enable.
Traps Settings In the Trap Settings, user can set the IPv4 and Ipv6 Destination List. IPv6 and IPv4 are two completely separate protocols. IPv6 is not backwards compatible with IPv4, and IPv4 hosts and routers will not be able to deal directly with IPv6 traffic. IPv6 has a significantly larger address space than IPv4.
Email Settings If you want the alert to be sent by email, you can configure to specify the e-mail address, subject and message in the Email Settings. After you finish the configuration, click Apply Change to save the settings.
