  • Use a management agent to enable in-band monitoring of your server's storage devices, including RAID arrays. You can view this information from the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) web interface or command-line interface (CLI).

  • Use a BIOS configuration tool, which runs on the host operating system and configures the host BIOS CMOS settings, host boot order, and some service processor (SP) settings.

  • Use IPMItool to access the server's service processor via the IPMI protocol and perform management tasks.
