Racks and Enclosures in HP Systems Insight Manager

HP Systems Insight Manager discovers and identifies blade server racks and enclosures.

There are two specific search criteria for racks and enclosures:

  • Rack

  • Enclosure

Running searches using these criteria returns a list of systems contained in the selected racks or enclosures. Any criteria except for the two listed previously returns the racks and enclosures themselves, not the systems in those racks and enclosures. For instance, a system name search for the rack Franklin 1 would return the system Franklin 1, not any systems in Franklin 1.

Two default lists are related to racks and enclosures and are listed under the System Type folder:

  • All Racks

  • All Enclosures

On the system list page, racks display in two formats:

  • Encl1 in Rack1

  • Rack1

The Picture View page can be displayed by clicking either rack hyperlink.

Clicking an enclosure name in the System Name column on the system list page produces a list of all discovered systems in the selected enclosure. The status for both racks and enclosures is always Unknown.

The Picture View page displays if the server is part of an enclosure or rack. This page contains a diagram of the discovered systems in the enclosure and, if available, in the rack. While logged in to HP Systems Insight Manager and placing your cursor over a server shown in the view, receive information on that particular server including blade server name, slot number, and the enclosure in which the server is located.
