Hello @qinhaizhong @Fengqi_Lee, the Redfish provider was added recently as our second physical infrastructure provider (after Lenovo LXCA).

You should be able to add the provider by going to the physical infrastructure provider tab and picking Redfish.

@Fengqi_Lee you will need a server that conforms to the redfish standard.

We had an overview of the new redfish provider in sprint 88 review (slides here https://www.slideshare.net/ManageIQ/sprint-88) checkout starting at slide 20.

@agrare Thanks.
But there is another problem . If the server does not support the redfish standard and it is not the Lenovo servers,what kind of provider can I use?
Is it necessary to develop an IPMI provider?
