Establishing a physical connection
To establish the physical connection to the Advanced Management Module use
one of the following methods:
1. Use a Category 5 UTP straight
through cable to connect the
Ethernet port on the management
module to a switch in a network that
has an networked management
station (PC or notebook).
2. Use a Category 5 cross-over
Ethernet cable to connect the
Advanced Management Module to a
standalone management station (PC
or notebook).

Checkpoint (1 of 2)
1. Select the correct statement describing the features provided by Advanced
Management Module (AMM)
a. The AMM provides management only common chassis components, not Blade Servers
b. The AMM provides management for Blade Servers if additional software drivers are installed
on the Blade Servers
c. The AMM provides management to common chassis components and Blade Servers and
does not require additional software or drivers
d. Management through the AMM requires IBM Director
2. True/False: The IBM BladeCenter requires a standalone management server,
shipped with each BladeCenter chassis.
3. True/False: The Advanced Management Module (AMM) requires one Bladeserver dedicated to chassis management.
4. True/False: In order for the AMM to discover and identify the VPD for a Bladeserver, the Blade-server does not have to be powered on.
5. Which statement is correct regarding the AMM?
a.
b.
c.
d.
Replacement of an AMM requires a power-down of the BladeCenter chassis
Each BladeCenter model implements a specific AMM for that model
Access to the AMM is local only, through the KVM connection on the module
The AMM provides both local and remote access to the BladeCenter, and is standardized
across chassis, with functions specific where needed.
