How the appliance handles unsupported hardware

Unsupported hardware is any device that the appliance cannot manage. Unsupported devices are similar to unmanaged devices in that all unsupported devices are not managed by the appliance. The difference is that you can bring unmanaged devices under management of the appliance if you take the appropriate actions or properly configure them. Unsupported hardware can never be managed by the appliance.

The appliance detects the unsupported hardware and displays the model name and other basic information that it obtains from the device for inventory purposes. The appliance also accounts for the physical space unsupported devices occupy in enclosures and racks.

To account for the space a device occupies, the appliance represents unsupported hardware the same way it represents unmanaged devices.

The action available for unsupported hardware is Remove.
