I would like to monitor Physical Disk failure of Dell PowerEdge server through IDRAC functionality, is it possible using SolarWinds.
I guess you already tried just adding a new node with entering the iDRAC IP address by using SNMP.
When I do it like this, Orion does not show any Disks in the discovered ressources:
But you can add the Node like this and than add a New Universal Device Poller using the DELL OID for physikal disks state
I did create a Universal Device Poller that can grab a fair amount of information directly from the iDRAC including physical/logical disk status, if it's useful for you.
