| Sun Server X2-4 (formerly Sun Fire X4470 M2)
After you have installed your server, you have several different options for managing it depending on your situation.
Managing many servers
Your server can be managed with a wide variety of system management tools. For more information on system management tools, see the information at: http://www.oracle.com/goto/system-management
Here is a summary and overview of some of these tools:
If your server is one of many x86 and SPARC servers that you want to manage from a single interface, you can use the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center. For more details, see http://www.oracle.com/us/products/enterprise-manager/044497.html.
If you want to monitor your enterprise servers, you can take advantage of Sun Management Center. For more details, see http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/systems/patches/sysmgmt/smc-jsp-138444.html.
If you already have third-party system management tools, the servers can integrate with many third-party tools. For more details, see http://www.oracle.com/goto/system-management.
Managing a single server
Oracle Hardware Installation Assistant is an application that you can use for initial server configuration. This application helps you to update firmware (Oracle ILOM firmware, BIOS, and RAID controller software) and to automate installation of a Linux or Windows operating system. For more details, see the Oracle Hardware Installation Assistant 2.5 User's Guide for x86 Servers at: http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=hia
Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) is built-in software and hardware that you can use to monitor the status and configuration of your server. For more information, see the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.1 Documentation Library (for Sun Server X2-4 software release 1.3 and above) at: http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=ilom31
