Platform: Intel A250
|Issue||Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM or ILO) is used for controlling power and remote access to the Intel version of the A250 (or 2U) hardware RSA SecurID Appliance that hosts Authentication Manager.|
With the Intel appliance, these are really Baseboard Management Controllers (BMC) for the Remote Management Module (RMM4). While not supported by RSA because it was not QA tested, ILOM/BMC is now standard on newer Intel RSA SecurID appliance models. Older Dell versions of the SecurID appliance had the Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC), which also was not supported by RSA.
This article is a simple example of setting up BMC remote console access.
You will need physical access to the Intel appliance to connect a monitor and keyboard.
New Authentication Manager 8.1 administrators should also consider enabling SSH access to eth0 in the Authentication Manager Operations Console (that is, https://<fully_qualified_domain_name_of server:7072/operations-console) under Administration > Operating System Access.
As part of this process you will:
|Resolution||Use the User Guide for Intel® Remote Management Module 4 (Intel® RMM4) and Integrated BMC to configure one of the LAN channels for either DHCP or static IP. See sections 4.1 on page 29 and 4.2 on page 30.|
Section 5 explains browser considerations for using the BMC Web Console. Section 5.2 shows how to login to https://<IP_address>.
