Out-of-band configuration for blades on the Advanced Management Module (AMM)

ASU supports the configuration of blade settings through the out-of-band (OOB) mode. This section describes how to use it to configure blades on AMM.

The OOB configuration is designed to configure settings of blades on AMM. Before you use this function, ensure that the following requirements are met: Command Examples:

To show a remote blade uEFI setting: asu show uefi --host x.x.x.x--user xxx--password xxx--slot x

To set a remote blade setting, use: asu set SETTING_NAME xxx--host x.x.x.x--user xxx--password--slot x--port 6090

In the examples, -- host x.x.x.x is the IP address of the remote AMM, --user xxx and --password xxx are used to authenticate the connection, --slot x refers to the IMM node bay of the blade, and --port provides the port number for AMM chassis interface; the default is 6090.

The commands supported by OOB configuration for blades on AMM are listed below.
