Manage a node remotely using the SP/BMC overview

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.

The following platforms support BMC instead of SP:

  • FAS 8300

  • FAS27x0

  • AFF A800

  • AFF A700s
