Hello Jason.

Can you elaborate in more detail regarding the device info you're expecting DCO to obtain?

Are you asking whether DCO can monitor devices without a product like Data Center Expert?

Regards

I guess it would be the integration of Expert.  We are wanting to utilize DCO to its fullest and I hear it can automatically pull device serial number model and other info.... So when we add an asset it will automatically grab most of the device info and we just place it where it is in the environment.

Hi Jason,

Integration with monitoring systems, such as StruxureWare Data Center Expert servers, allows for associating devices (UPS, PDU, rack PDUs, etc.) to physical locations in the layout and for retrieving actual measured data and alarm data. more info here: 

Viewing External System Data

Configuring StruxureWare Data Center Expert integration

Associating Live Data from an External System to the Layout

So actually after the integration with DCE (as an external system), DCO would be able to get device data (from DCE) on a regular interval (user configurable, Configuring StruxureWare Data Center Expert integration)

Kind regards
