Discovering Management Controllers

A management controller in BMC Discovery represents a chassis controller on a blade enclosure or a lights-out management board on a host. You can discover the Cisco IMC and HP iLO for ProLiant management controllers by using Cisco IMC Web API and HP iLO Web API credentials, respectively. The Web API credentials are checked in sequence, and the first matching entry is used. After a working Web API credential is found, no further credentials are checked. To reorder Web API credentials, drag the credential to the required position in the list.

When a management controller is discovered, it is modeled as a Management Controller node. The Management Controller page in the UI (Explore > Data > Hosts & Host Containers) displays the discovery details. For more information, see Viewing a management controller.
