  • Hi,

    Not out of the box. In most time it depends on if the hardware vendor has a management pack or not.

  • Hi, Hardware manufacturers such as Dell etc will have released their own MP and you can download and import the MP into SCoM. For Example for Dell, the servers to be monitored will required them to be on a minimum version of the open managed application. SNMP traps is another option as most servers are able to have snmp traps configured and sent to the SCOM server. But this will require OU to create your own snmp monitors.
