What’s the equivalent of ILO in an IBM server?

| June 5, 2007 | 2 Comments

Got an email asking about what the equivalent is in the IBM server for the RIB/ILO card in HP.

I have to confess not having played much with the IBM servers ILO, but as I understand it, you have a IBM Remote Supervisor Adaptor which provides the same functionality:

  • Around-the-clock remote access and system management of your server.
  • Remote management independent of the status of the managed server.
  • Remote control of hardware and operating systems.
  • Web-based management with standard Web browsers.

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/systems/support/system_x_pdf/43w7827.pdf – contains the pdf for the card.

    From WIKI:

    Remote supervisor adapter (RSA) is the out-of-band management interface card optional on most IBM x86-based server machines sold under the IBM System x brand.

    Similar in functionality to HP iLO, Dell DRAC, Sun SSP, Real Weasel, or Cisco CIMC.
