Supermicro Update Manager (SUM) Out of Band (OOB) License Key for Remote Server BIOS and Firmware Update and Configuration

$53.00 $48.00

The Supermicro Update Manager (SUM) can be used to manage the BIOS and BMC firmware image update and configuration update for Supermicro X9 (Romley), X10, and X11 generation systems. In addition, system checks as well as event log management are also supported. Moreover, special applications are also provided to facilitate system management. To update configurations, users can edit system BIOS settings, DMI information and BMC configurations from readable text files, as well as use this update manager to apply these configurations. Two channels are possible for management: the OOB (Out-Of-Band) channel, i.e. communication through the BMC IPMI interface, and the in-band channel, i.e. communication through the local system interfaces. By the OOB channel, most management commands (except CheckSystemUtilization) can be executed independently of the OS on the managed system and even before the system OS is installed.
