When you're deploying new hardware, it's helpful to have as specific a plan as possible. For instance, it's good to know how to run a discovery in Ops Center, but if you have a guide that specifically explains how to discover the type of hardware that you're installing, that makes your job even simpler.
With that in mind, we put together a How-To that explains how to discover new Oracle SPARC T5 servers. It walks you through creating IPMI and SSH credentials, creating a discovery profile, and running it to discover the new system or systems. It also gives you pointers to the asset management and hardware management chapters in the feature guide, which provide a broader range of information about discovering and managing hardware.
