Lights out on servers – what you need to know

Mike was asking me to define the different names used for the different vendors lights out cards, this was written on my blackberry on the train home, so if I make any errors relating to the vendors I do apologise.

  • Dell – DRAC – Dell Remote Access Card
  • HP – ILO or now ILO2
  • IBM- Remote Supervisor Adaptor (RSA) or RSA II
  • Rackable – Roamer Remote Management Card
  • Sun – Sun Integratedl Lights Out Manager (ILOM)

Hope I haven’t missed anything, if I’ve made any errors, do contact me.
