The HP Onboard Administrator for the HP BladeSystem enclosures is the intelligence of the c-Class infrastructure. Together with the enclosure’s display (HP Insight Display), the Onboard Administrator has been designed for both local and remote administration of HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosures.
This BladeSystem feature provides: Wizards for simple, fast setup and configuration, highly available and secure access to the HP BladeSystem infrastructure, security roles for server, network, and storage administrators, agent-less device health and status and thermal Logic power and cooling information and control. Each enclosure is shipped with one Onboard Administrator module/firmware.
If desired, a customer may order a second redundant Onboard Administrator module for each enclosure. When two Onboard Administrator modules are present in a BladeSystem c-Class enclosure, they work in an active – standby mode, assuring full redundancy with integrated management.
