- Remote Console In addition to the remote console functionality already provided by ASM, with the Acer Remote Management Card, you can access the server, completely independently of the server state. It is possible to access the server in Pre-OS mode, which means that the operating does not necessarily need to be running to provide the remote console functionality. Therefore, it is possible to access BIOS settings, to run DOS based diagnostic tools and even to get Blue Screen Data. Furthermore, it is possible to access SCSI and RAID utilities, to allow remote configuration or expansion of storage arrays. The Remote Console can be accessed either through and Ethernet connection or a direct dial-up connection to the server. Naturally the Remote Console is using an SSL port, which guarantees maximum security for your server and data.
- Virtual Media With the Acer Remote Management Card, it is possible to have a virtual floppy, CD ROM, DVD or Flash stick. This means, that the administrator can transfer or run tools from his local media devices to run on the remote server. This is beneficial for transferring diagnostic tools, BIOS updates, Firmware updates or even loading new service packs or security patches. Using virtual media functionality, it is possible to avoid costly on-site interventions to upgrade software, as everything can be managed centrally.
- Automatic Server Recovery The Acer Remote Management Card monitors your server to ensure it is operating, using a polling mechanism. In the event, that the ARMC detects that the Server is not operating, it will automatically reset the server, in order to recover services and minimize downtime. If we consider this in the context of Mikes situation described above, this means that the interruption to services can be minimized, whilst he diagnoses and develops a plan to recover normal application services.
