One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) 6.5 includes a dedicated out-of-band management interface conforming to the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) v2.0 standards. The IPMI interface allows system administrators to monitor the system health of SPS and to manage the computer events remotely, independently of the operating system of SPS. SPS is accessible using the IPMI interface only if the IPMI interface is physically connected to the network.
Note that the IPMI interface supports only 100Mbps Full-Duplex speed.
For details on connecting the IPMI interface, see "Installing the SPS hardware" in the Installation Guide.
For details on configuring the IPMI interface, see Configuring the IPMI interface from the console.
For details on using the IPMI interface to remotely monitor and manage SPS, see the following document:
For Safeguard Sessions Appliance 3000 and 3500, see the X9 SMT IPMI User's Guide.
