Dell Warranty Information

Hey,

Has anyone done anything with Dell information in NPM?  I currently use a mib to get service tag from the server but i then want something to get the expire date from the dell website and add this to NPM.  I found this but it's for spiceworks http://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/show/197

I know i could manually enter the information but was hoping for something automated.

Thanks

This is an old post, but I have a similar need. My Solarwinds NPM polling was not retrieving the Service Tag as the serial number, but instead a long different value.

What I did was this:

I had a spreadsheet with all the Service Tags of my DELL switches. Just 2 columns - Switch Name and Service Tag

I created a custom property named DELL_Service_Tag and imported the value from the spreadsheet.

Matched the column Switch Name to Node Name and imported Column Service Tag to DELL_Service_Tag custom property.

The Custom Property displays correctly

I only have ~ 30 DELL nodes, so this was a relatively easy process. If I had > 100 then it may have been painful.

I wish Solarwinds would be able to read DELL Service Tags such that EoL\EoS dates can be automatically populated.

Were you able to locate the OID for what you wanted to poll?
