Adding a c7000 enclosure to manage its contents


The name associated with the enclosure is the enclosure name set in the Onboard Administrator (OA), and is not the name of the OA.

  1. From the main menu, select Enclosures and do one of the following:
    • Click + Add enclosure in the master pane.

    • Select Actions > Add.

  2. Select Add enclosure for management.
  3. Enter the data requested on the screen.

    You are not setting the OA name and OA password, but are supplying credentials to establish a trust relationship between HPE OneView and the OA.

  4. Choose Add or Add +.
  5. If you have more enclosures to add, you can add the next enclosure immediately; you do not have to wait for the last Add Enclosure action to complete before starting the next.
  6. You must supply a new IP address or host name for each enclosure, but the Onboard Administrator Name and Password credentials are retained on the screen as a convenience if you use the same credentials for multiple enclosures.
  7. Verify that the enclosure has been added by confirming the enclosure is listed in the master pane.
