New Redfish Release 2019.3 Adds SNMP and SMTP Support

DMTF’s Redfish®, Release 2019.3, is now available for public download. Designed to deliver simple and secure management for hybrid IT and the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), the latest release of the Redfish standard includes 14 schema updates and additional developer resources. The new release features support for configuring SNMP or SMTP-based services and event delivery, which allow users to migrate additional legacy deployment tools and scripts to use Redfish (including the configuration of legacy functionality such as SNMP). In addition, GeneratorId in LogEntry for mapping IPMI SEL events, and Reset action for power supplies and processors have all been added as a direct response to end user feedback.

Some of the items in the new Redfish 2019.3 update include:

  • 2019.3 Redfish Schema Bundle – This .zip file contains the current versions of all Redfish schema. Among the changes, the ability to configure SNMP and SMTP services via Redfish is provided via new updates to the EventDestination, EventService, ManagerAccount, and ManagerNetworkProtocol schemas. In addition, a GeneratorId property for mapping IPMI SEL events has been added to LogEntry, and Power Supply, and Processor Schemas now include a Reset action.
