We have three different NTP servers in our environment. For high availability reasons it would be great to configure at least two NTP servers in Lenovo XClarity. As far as I know, it is only possible to enter one NTP server at the moment (v 1.3.0).
Request from customer. Add the ability to centrally manage user accounts for the IMM/CMM and push updates to endpoints. This would include the ability to push new passwords to these devices for those clients that are on a schedule in which they must change passwords. That includes the ability to update the password for the RECOVERY_ID account created when using centralized management. This would be very beneficial in sceanrios where the endpoint is configured with the "Secure" security policy in which password expiration is enforced.
Add the ability to use standard LDAP servers for authentication within XClarity Administrator. Today, the only external LDAP solution supported is Microsoft Active Directory. This requirement came from a customer.
Allow for creation of a Policy that can be assigned to a Flex chassis bay/bays that results in automatic firmware update provisioning, assign server profile, and install Operating system as soon as a compute node is inserted into a Flex chassis bay.
Customer requirement request. Provide for the ability to import a pool of IMM FOD keys; also request for an Enterprise level IMM FOD key that covers a certain number of endpoints. Once the keys are imported or downloaded, XClarity Administrator should be able to distribute this key or set of keys to the desired system IMM's. Would also like the ability to easily deactivate a key on one system, so that it could be used on a different system if the user deems that the advanced function is no longer needed/desired on a system (floating pool was how it was explained)
Add a view within XClarity Administrator that allows the admin to view the history of firmware applied to a system (all components) along with the current firmware applied within that same view. Of course this information should be able to be exported. All supported APIs and scripting tools (REST, PowerShell etc..) should also be able to extract this information.
Recently, I tried to add xclarity integrator to our test vcenter that is running vcenter 6.0 behind a vmware platform service controller. We have a total of 4 vcenters, all behind the same platform service controller for our vdi environment per design from vmware. so here is the issue:
for testing, i only wanted to have my test environment see the xclarity integrator in the web client. i was not tryng to add the integrator to all my other vcenters at this time. Howeve, it appears that the web client for vcenter is trying to apply the lxci to all my vcenters
here is my question to the powers that be
since vmware is heading the way of allowing multiple vcenters to be under 1 psc, is there a way to lxca to manage all vcenters in a psc or web client? forgive me for the poor wording of the question....
please reach out if you have any further questions
