It is the responsibility of the Appliance Administrator to manage the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords licenses. For more information, see License: hardware, virtual, expiration.To avoid disruptions in the use of Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, the Appliance Administrator must configure the SMTP server, and define email templates for the License Expired and the License Expiring Soon event types. This ensures you will be notified of an approaching expiration date. For more information, see Enabling email notifications.

To enter licensing information when you first log in

The first time you log in as the Appliance Administrator, you are prompted to add one or more licenses. The Success dialog displays when a license is added.

Lights Out Management (BMC)

The Lights Out Management feature allows you to remotely manage the power state and serial console to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords using the baseboard management controller (BMC). When a LAN interface is configured, this allows the Appliance Administrator to power on an appliance remotely or to interact with the Recovery Kiosk.

It is the responsibility of the Appliance Administrator to enable and configure the Lights Out Management feature. When Lights Out Management is enabled, the Appliance Administrator can set or change the password and modify the network information for the baseboard management console (BMC). When disabled, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords immediately resets the password to a random value and resets the network settings to default values.

IMPORTANT: This feature requires a LAN interface to be enabled and configured. One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords's BMC supports the following LAN interfaces to provide this functionality:

  • SSH
  • IPMI v2
  • Web
  • Serial over Lan

It is strongly recommended that the LAN interface only be enabled in trusted environments.

To enable Lights Out Management

  1. Access Lights Out Management in one of two ways:
  2. Click the Enable Lights Out Management toggle to enable or disable this feature. Set toggle on or toggle off.
  3. Once enabled, enter the following information about the BMC:
    1. IP address: The IPv4 address of the host machine.
    2. Netmask: The network mask IPv4 address.
    3. Default Gateway: The default gateway IPv4 address.
  4. Click the Set BMC Admin Password button to set the password for the host machine.

    Maximum password length: 20 characters.

    NOTE: If this feature was previously enabled, you will see an Update BMC Admin Password button instead. Optionally, click the Update BMC Admin Password button to reset the password for the host machine.

  5. Click OK to save the settings on the host machine.
NOTE: Once Lights Out Management is enabled in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, you can access the BMC via a web interface or by using SSH to connect to the IPMI port to remotely manage the power state and serial console to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords. The default user for accessing the BMC is ADMIN.
