After you have installed your server, you have several different options for managing it depending on your situation.
Managing a single server
Your server can be managed with a wide variety of system management tools. For more information on the single system management tools, see the information at http://www.sun.com/systemmanagement/managementtools.jsp

This application helps you to update firmware (ILOM firmware, BIOS, and RAID controller software) and to automate installation of a Linux or Windows operating system.
