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.

Whether a V3 rack server network port can be used as a management network port?
The V3 server iBMC allows users to access the iBMC from a service network port. For details about the configuration, see "Setting the Network Port Mode" in|9856522|21782478|21782482|9768163&clientWidth=1520&browseTime=1494379275224.

Accessing the management network port
For details about how to log in to the iMana CLI and WebUI, see the iMana User Guide (Link). For details about how to log in to the iBMC CLI and WebUI, see the iBMC User Guide (Link). Use HTTPS to access the WebUI. Enter https://bmc_ip_address/ in the browser's address box and press Enter. It is not recommended that you enter "bmc_ip_address" in the browser's address box and press Enter. If you enter only the IP address, HTTP will be used by default. The login may fail because HTTP poses security risks.

Server management port rate
The rate of the server BMC port is 100 Mbit/s.

V2 rack server NC-SI
iMana supports the NC-SI (Network Controller Sideband Interface) feature, that is, a physical network port can be used as both a management network port and a service network port. This feature allows users to access iMana through a service network port.
You can enable or disable the NC-SI features on the iMana or BIOS interface. By default, NC-SI is disabled.
