Safety information
Electrical safety
• To prevent electrical shock hazard, disconnect the power cable from the
electrical outlet before relocating the server.
• When adding or removing devices to or from the server, ensure that the power
cables for the devices are unplugged before the signal cables are connected. If
possible, disconnect all power cables from the existing server before you add a
device.
• Before connecting or removing signal cables from the server, ensure that all
power cables are unplugged.
• Seek professional assistance before using an adapter or extension cord.
These devices could interrupt the grounding circuit.
• Make sure that your power supply is set to the correct voltage in your area. If
you are not sure about the voltage of the electrical outlet you are using, contact
your local power company.
• If the power supply is broken, do not try to fix it by yourself. Contact a qualified
service technician or your retailer.

Chapter 2: Installation
2.1
Before you proceed
Take note of the following precautions before you install the server management
board to the remote server system.
2.2
•
Unplug the server system power cord from the wall socket before touching
any component.
•
Use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safely grounded object or to
a metal object, such as the power supply case, before handling
components to avoid damaging them due to static electricity.
•
Hold components by the edges to avoid touching the ICs on them.
•
Whenever you uninstall any component, place it on a grounded
antistatic pad or in the bag that came with the component.
•
Before you install or remove any component, ensure that the power supply
is switched off or the power cord is detached from the power supply. Failure
to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard, peripherals, and/or
components.
Hardware installation
To install the server management board:
1.
Locate the ASMB6 connector on
the motherboard.
Refer to the Appendix section
for the location of the ASMB6
connector on supported
motherboards.
2.
2-2
Place the card on the ASMB6
connector of the motherboard,

For connection to a network hub or router, connect the other end of the LAN
cable to the network hub or router.
7.
Ensure the VGA, USB, PS/2 cables are corrected, then connect the power
plug to a grounded wall socket.
Everytime after the AC power is re-plugged, you have to wait for about 60
seconds for the system power up.

Configuring the LAN controller
Before you can establish connection to the ASMB6-iKVM board, you must
configure the LAN port for server management used by the remote server to
connect to the local/central server.
To configure the LAN port of the remote server:
1.
Run the ASMC6 utility from the support CD following the instructions in the
previous section.
2.
Set IP source:
(a) Type ASMC6 -bmc_ip_source 1 if you want to set a static IP address.
(b) Type ASMC6 -bmc_ip_source 2 if you want to get IP from DHCP server.
3.
Type ASMC6 -bmc_ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, then press <Enter> to assign any IP
address to the remote server LAN port (if necessary). The screen displays the
request and response buffer. Write the remote server IP address in a piece of
paper for reference.

When finished, the utility returns to the DOS prompt.
Make sure that the assigned IP address for both remote and local/central
servers are in the same subnet. You can use the network settings utility in your
OS to check.
4.
Configure your (a) subnet mask and (b) gateway address if necessary.
(a) Type ASMC6 -bmc_mask xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (your subnet mask encoded in
hexadecimal system)
(b) Type ASMC6 -bmc_gateway xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (your gateway address
encoded in hexadecimal system)
5.
Restart the remote server, enter the BIOS setup, then boot from the hard disk
drive.
6.
Adjust the local/central server network settings, if necessary.

Software installation
You can monitor, control, or manage the remote server from the local/central server
using the ASUS Remote Console (ARC). The ARC is a web-based application
available from the support CD that came with theASMB6-iKVM package. You must
install the ARC on the local/central server to access the remote server.
Before you install the ARC:
2.6.1
•
For SNMP Service: View the Platform Event Trap (PET) information. See
page 3-17 for details.
•
For Microsoft® ActiveSync: Enable the SMS feature. See page 3-15 for
details.
Installing the ARC
To install the ARC to the local/central server:
1.
Place the support CD to the optical drive. The CD automatically displays the
Drivers menu if Autorun is enabled in your computer.
If Autorun is NOT enabled in your computer, browse the contents of the support
CD to locate the file ARC.EXE in the ARC folder. Double‑click the ARC.EXE to
install the application.

LDAP
The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an application protocol
for querying and modifying data of directory services implemented in Internet
Protocol (IP) networks. If you have an LDAP server configured on your network,
you can use it as an easy way to add, manage and authenticate MegaRAC® card
users. This is done by passing login requests to your LDAP Server. This means
that there is no need to define an additional authentication mechanism, when using
the MegaRAC card. Since your existing LDAP Server keeps an authentication
centralized, you will always know who is accessing the network resources and can
easily define the user or group-based policies to control access.
To open LDAP Settings page, click Configuration > LDAP from the main menu.
A sample screenshot of LDAP Settings Page is shown in the screenshot below.

PEF
Platform Event Filtering (PEF) provides a mechanism for configuring the BMC
to take selected actions on event messages that it receives or has internally
generated. These actions include operations such as system power-off, system
reset, as well as triggering the generation of an alert. A PEF implementation is
recommended to provide at least 16 entries in the event filter table. A subset of
these entries should be pre-configured for common system failure events, such as
over-temperature, power system failure, fan failure events, etc.
To open PEF Management Settings page, click Configurations > PEF from the

Reference
information
A.1
BMC connector
The ASUS server motherboards that support the ASMB6-iKVM comes with a
Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) connector.
Refer to the illustration below to locate the BMC connector on different server
motherboards.

Appendix: Reference information
A.2
LAN ports for server management
The ASUS server motherboards that support the ASMB6-iKVM comes with three
LAN (RJ-45) ports: one for network connection and the other two for server
management. For easy identification, the LAN ports for server management are
LAN1 and DM_LAN1 ports. You must use the LAN1 and DM_LAN1 ports for server
management to connect the remote server to the local/central host (direct LAN
connection) or to the network hub or router.
Refer to the illustration below to identify the LAN1 and DM_LAN1 ports for server
management on some server motherboards.

Troubleshooting
This troubleshooting guide provides answers to some common problems that you
may encounter while installing and/or using ASUS ASMB6-iKVM. These problems
require simple troubleshooting that you can perform by yourself. Contact the
Technical Support if you encounter problems not mentioned in this section.
Problem
Solution
The local/central server cannot connect
to the ASMB6-iKVM board
1. Check if the LAN cable is connected
to the LAN port.
2. Make sure that the IP address of
both the remote and local/central
servers are on the same subnet.
(Refer to chapter 2 for details.)
Try “ping xx.xx.xx.xx” (remote
server ip) on local/central server
and make sure remote server could
reply the ping request.
3. Check if the IP source is set to
[DHCP]. When set to [DHCP], you’ll
not be able to configure the IP
address.
A-4
All the SEL (System Event Log)
cannot be displayed
The maximum SEL number is 900 events.
The date/time shown in SEL (System
Event Log) screen is incorrect
Refer to section 4.4.9 to check if the time
zone is set up correctly.
ASMB6-iKVM has network connection
problems in Firewall environment
Ask MIS to add the following port
numbers in Firewall:
5123 (virtual floppy) (TCP)
5120 (virtual CDROM) (TCP)
623 (IPMI) (TCP & UDP)
80 (HTTP) (TCP)
7578 (iKVM) (TCP)
443 (HTTPs) (TCP)
161 (SNMP) (UDP)
