I cannot discover a server with SSH credentials with Server Access. When select SSH I have to put also the IPMI credentials. Why is needed the IPMI? I only have the SSH credentials.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Server Access functionality provides a couple of options. Once set of options allows you to specific out-of-band connections to the device using tools like remote desktop, ssh, or vnc.
When using the above methods to connect to a server you do not need to discover the device, you can specify the protocol, hostname or IP, and username in the operating system section server access window (see below screenshot).
If your goal is to open a remote console session on the server, then you must discover the server using IPMI protocol. Its the IPMI protocol which provides access to the remote console feature of the server's management card. In that case the top portion of the server access window will be filled in with the credentials used to discover the management card.
