There are several supplemental software components available for your Sun Fire server. You have two options for installation:
Typical – Installs all supplemental software applicable for your server.
Custom – Installs only the supplement software selected for installation.
The following supplemental software components are available for your server.
LSI MegaRAID Storage Manager. Enables you to configure, monitor, and maintain RAID on the SAS internal RAID Host Bus Adapter.
IPMItool. A command-line utility that reads the sensor data repository (SDR) and shows sensor values, system event log (SEL), and field-replaceable unit (FRU) inventory information; gets and sets LAN configuration parameters; performs chassis power control operations through the BMC (also called the service processor).
Intel NIC Teaming. Enables the network interfaces on a server to be grouped together into a team of physical ports called a virtual interface. Its features include fault tolerance, load balancing, link aggregation, and virtual LAN (VLAN) tagging.
Caution - If you have already installed the supplemental software, running the installation again does not necessarily reinstall the supplemental software. It might result in the components being removed. Carefully review the screens during supplemental software installation to ensure that the results are what you want.
