About Server Hardware Inventory

HPE OneView collects system hardware information when it discovers a server within managed or monitored enclosures. This information includes Memory, Local Storage, and I/O devices of a server. For supported rack servers, HPE OneView discovers the rack connectivity module ports to which the adapter ports are connected. For supported blade servers, HPE OneView discovers the interconnect downlink ports connected to each of the adapter ports. To conserve system resources, a low priority background process collects the system hardware information.

This background process is executed during the following events:

  • Add a server.
  • Refresh a server.
  • Receive a change notification from management process.

Expect a short delay before HPE OneView updates the inventory following the events. System hardware information is available only for Gen10 servers running version iLO 5 V 1.20 or later.
