ServerView Remote Management
ServerView Remote Management is the remote management solution from
Fujitsu for PRIMERGY servers. ServerView Remote Management and the
relevant hardware components integrated on the system board allow remote
monitoring and maintenance as well as fast restoration of operation in the event
of errors.
Remote monitoring and maintenance avoids time-consuming and costly on-site
repairs and reduces service costs. This leads to a reduction in the total cost of
ownership and an excellent return on investment for the remote management
solution.
The administrator can access all system information and information from the
sensors such as fan speeds or voltages via the iRMC S3's Web interface (see
section "iRMC S3 with integrated management LAN connector" on page 20).
You can also start the text-based or graphic console bypass (Advanced Video
Redirection, AVR) and connect virtual drives as remote storage.
I More information about the iRMC S3 can be found in the "iRMC S2/3 integrated Remote Management Controller" user guide (on the
