Function of the server management network port
The management network port of a server is the BMC (iMana/iBMC) port. For details, see the iMana User Guide (Link) or iBMC User Guide (Link). The BMC implements server management and complies with IPMI2.0. The BMC provides the following functions: ? Remote control: implements remote control of a server via Keyboard Video and Mouse (KVM), Serial over LAN (SOL), or virtual media. ?- Alarm management: Receives alarms from the Field Replaceable Units (FRUs) and takes related processing based on the information received. ? Status monitoring: monitors running status of FRUs in real time. ? Device information management: provides device version, model, and asset information. ? Heat dissipation: dynamically adjusts the fan speed based on the temperature and workload of the server. ? Support for IPMItool: iMana supports commands sent from IPMItool. You can download the IPMItool from official website. ? Support for web management: iMana provides GUI management, which allows users to perform set and query operations by simply clicking mouse. -?Centralized account management: iMana allows user accounts to be stored on the Active Directory (AD) server, which redirects authentication to the server and implements access from domain users.
