About assigning a server profile to an empty device bay

You can assign a server profile to an empty bay. The server profile is applied automatically to the server hardware when the server is inserted into the bay and meets the following criteria:

  • The enclosure bay is not assigned by another server profile (for example, you cannot assign a profile to bay 9 if a profile for a full-height server hardware type is assigned to bay 1). This is checked when the profile is assigned.

  • The server hardware type of the hardware matches the server hardware type specified in the server profile.

When you create the server profile, select Device bay or Device bay + server hardware affinity. If you select the affinity Device bay + server hardware for an empty bay, the UUID is set when a matching server hardware type is inserted into the bay.
