I have a dell Poweredge 1800. From Openmanage I can access the remote access part of the BMC. A MAC address is displayed and I have set an IP address.
The server is in a remote location so I can not check to see if a LOM port is present, but with a MAD address showing in open manage I presume there must be something present.
I was looking at getting a KVM over IP device for bios level remote access to the server. Could I use the built in remote access facility to do the job instead, or is it a very limited function of the BMC? What can be done with the remote access function on the BMC? Is a seperate Remote Access card required to give full functionality?
