Many users will stick with default settings, but it is nice to have this control for those that do need to change these items. Firmware Vendors – under the hood more vendors lurk; there are only a few places that make BMCs, or Baseboard Mgmt Controllers, the little computers that implement IPMI; it’s often created by 3 or more different vendors – the chipmakers, the firmware software adder-onners, and a big vendor like IBM, Dell, HP, etc.


Retrieved from ” https: As a message-based, hardware-level interface specification, IPMI operates independently of the operating system OS to allow administrators to manage a system remotely in the absence of an operating system or of the system management software.

The BMC monitors avpcent sensors and can send alerts to a system administrator via the network if any of the parameters do not stay within pre-set limits, indicating a potential failure of the system.

Retrieved 9 August Overall, the User role has read-only access of the BMC and no remote control ability such as power cycle or the ability to view or log into the main CPU on the motherboard.

The Gigabyte solution provides the ability to enable or disable these server management pathways.
