HP Location Discovery Services is the first solution that merges the physical rack with IT equipment to provide automated location awareness of installed servers. nnHP Intelligent Series Racks with the Location Discovery option installed provide detailed location information to ProLiant Gen8 servers to track new installations and equipment moves. Upon installation the server’s iLO queries and records the rack identifier as well as the exact U location of the server in the rack. nnOnce the server knows exactly where it is located, this information can be forwarded to other systems such as the HP Intelligent PDUs, and can be used to automatically update Insight Control. This saves time in configuring hardware and software to manage the data center while eliminating constant manual updates and the associated human errors that can slow resolution to issues and even cause down time and loss of business.
