OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter is a vCenter plug-in that enables you to monitor, update, and manage PowerEdge servers directly in your vCenter administration domain, helping to reduce the complexity of managing your data center. The plug-in streamlines tasks that are associated with managing and monitoring Dell EMC server infrastructure in the vSphere environment. These tasks include:
Note: At the time of publication, no default vSAN firmware/driver catalog is available for OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter to create a repository. As an administrator using Dell Repository Manager (DRM), you must manually check the driver/firmware package based on your vSAN version (see vSAN VCG in the VMware Compatibility Guide). If you are using a network share, create a network shared folder with VCG for vSAN and compatible firmware and drivers, and then create a custom repository profile and point to the shared folder. OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter can help provide and implement cluster-aware updates to use rolling updates with a DRS policy and detect drift from those settings.
