Server name showing in Onboard Administrator

Hi,

I have a C3000 blade enclosure with 3 BL460c blades. One of the blades has Windows 2008 installed and using the Onboard Administrator, the correct server name shows up under that Device Bay.

The other two have VMware ESX3.5 installed and I get a name like Svr-000072C9 showing up in Onboard Administrator. How can I change that name to reflect the name I gave the ESX hosts, namely ESX1 and ESX2?

Thanks,

John

John,

Go to The RBSU by pressing F9,
Server Asset text,
Server info text,
Server Name.

Provide the name (ESX1 or ESX2)it will be reflected in OA under device bays.

Also Proliant Support Pack (Or Insight Agents in ESX case) provide the server name to OA. It also will reflect if there is a change of name (BIOS asset has to be typed manually).
