  1. Systems management with Advanced Management Module

  2. Unit objectives After completing this unit, you should be able to: • List the features of the BladeCenter Advanced Management Module • Describe the role of the Advanced Management Module in BladeCenter chassis and component management • List the tasks available through the Advanced Management Module GUI Interface • List the procedures for BladeCenter resource control and configuration provided by the Advanced Management Module • Identify and select the procedure to update the Advanced Management Module firmware

  3. Hot-swappable module Powerful and robust systems management Proxy for expansion modules Controls all aspects of power, connectivity, and communication Reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) Advanced Management Module Center point for IBM BladeCenter’ infrastructure intelligence:

  9. To establish the physical connection to the Advanced Management Module use one of the following methods: Establishing a physical connection • Use a Category 5 UTP straight through cable to connect the Ethernet port on the management module to a switch in a network that has an networked management station (PC or notebook). • Use a Category 5 cross-over Ethernet cable to connect the Advanced Management Module to a standalone management station (PC or notebook).
