ILO amplifier and configuration baseline

Hi,

I am trying to make configuration baselines to work but I am missing something. I have Imported config baseline from existing server and I expect that could now comapre this agains other servers and get a report. But I cannot find such option. Firmware baseline works fine and I can get a report but I cannot see how I could do tha same for configuration. Anyone tryied this?

Thanks

Thanks for input but the document does not cover how to create report based on configuration baseline.

Re: ILO amplifier and configuration baseline

Hi,

We see that the Configuration baseline is used to create / import the Server configuration settings and to restore it back on the Servers during Server system restore process.

We can only either Create or import and edit a configuration baseline from a server and use the same for Recovery Management.

Thank you

Re: ILO amplifier and configuration baseline

We were looking to try and do the same (obvious) thing, but found there is no such option which is disapointing. There seem to be quite a few things like this in Amplifier that are just not fully realised. You have gathered all of the info about the configuration of a server, you have given us the ability to create a configration baseline, why would you now allow us to compare server configurations against that baseline/each other? It is a useful feature! Please add this in a future release.

Re: ILO amplifier and configuration baseline

I can only agree with you.  I've looked into various functions of ILO-A and eihter they are just not working (no configuration baseline with >40 disks, alerts not send out), ot they are just useless. It seems this is a toll with a nice GUI but nobody really thought about what features would be helpful.

Re: ILO amplifier and configuration baseline

For some reason it seems when you create a new Baseline in Amplifier pack, you can only choose between 8 different settings for ILO that you could set .... compared to the many settings it's possible to set in ILO, thats seems to be a lacking feature.

 

I'd love to be able to make a baseline that contained a bunch of settings that i want configured on all ilo's discoverd/added to the appliance.

For instance Local users/rights, Directory groups/rights, SNMP/Trap locations and so on and so forth..... so far it seems none of those can be set through/using ILO Amplifier Pack.... unless i'm blind and not seeing something...
