Managing a node remotely using the SP/BMC

You can manage a node remotely using an onboard controller, called a Service Processor (SP) or Baseboard Management Controller (BMC). This remote management controller is included in all current platform models. The controller stays operational regardless of the operating state of the node.

Most AFF, FAS, and V-Series platforms have an SP, except for the AFF A700s, which has a BMC.
