Scenario 1: Adding an enclosure to manage to an existing enclosure group

The quickest way to add an enclosure for management by HPE OneView is to specify an existing enclosure group. When you add an enclosure to an existing enclosure group, the enclosure is configured like the other enclosures in the group, including the network connections. This scenario creates a single logical interconnect group for the enclosure.

Description

Enclosures
  1. Add the enclosure.

  • Select Add enclosure for management.

  • Specify an existing enclosure group.

  • Select a firmware baseline and an HPE OneView Advanced licensing option.

Server Profiles
  1. Do one of the following:
    • Create a server profile manually or from a server profile template, and assign it to the server hardware.

    • Copy a server profile and assign it to the server hardware, then modify it as necessary.

  2. Power on the server hardware.

For a server blade to connect to a data center network, it must have a server profile assigned to it, and that server profile must include a connection to either the network or a network set that includes the network:

  • If there is an existing server profile that matches how you want the server hardware configured, you can copy that server profile and assign it to the server hardware.

  • Otherwise, you must create or copy and modify a server profile that includes at least one connection to the network or a network set that contains the network.

  • Server profiles contain much more configuration information than the connections to networks.
