When CMICs detect changes to hardware, software, and component firmware information, the asset inventory is updated and changes are communicated to the Teradata backend if the site is connected using Teradata ServiceConnect. The asset inventory includes the following:
  • Inventory information (such as model numbers, serial numbers, and part numbers)
  • System configuration parameters
  • Component revision levels

Asset Baseline

The Asset Baseline tool collects a snapshot of the system asset inventory and then does the following:
To generate an asset baseline, the Asset Baseline tool must be able to communicate with the node chassis sending information.
  • Collects data bundles containing system report data from node chassis
  • Formats the asset data and saves the output
  • If the site is configured to use ServiceConnect, forwards the resulting files to the Teradata backend
  • Once complete, the complete set of asset and report files may be downloaded as a zip archive
For unconnected systems, submit the files to Teradata Customer Services for offline processing.

Use the Asset Baseline tool at initial system configuration, and after any changes are made to cabinet configurations or IP addressing assigned through Server Management. Once a new asset baseline has been completed, if the system is connected using ServiceConnect, the CMICs will periodically collect and send detected asset changes to the Teradata backend.
