Set the PDU Information (Enhanced PDU)

It is a good practice to name the PDU you are monitoring, especially if your network contains multiple racks and PDUs. Besides the name, you can set the location of the PDU, Product Identification, and serial number of the rack in which the PDU is installed. When set, the name and location are displayed on the top of each HTML page.

  1. Access the PDU metering unit from a system on the network.

    See Access a Metering Unit on the Network (Enhanced PDU).

  2. Click on the Net Configuration link and log in as an admin user.

    See Login Information.

  3. Select the PDU Information tab.
  4. Provide a name, product identifier, rack serial number, and location for the PDU.

    32 maximum
    Product identifier
    40 maximum
    Rack serial number
    18 maximum
    32 maximum
