Introduction
Overview
HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator is the enclosure management processor, subsystem, and firmware base used to support the HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosure and all the managed devices contained within the enclosure. Onboard Administrator provides a single point from which to perform basic management tasks on server blades or switches within the enclosure. Onboard Administrator performs configuration steps for the enclosure, enables run-time management and configuration of the enclosure components, and informs you of problems within the enclosure through email, SNMP, or the Insight Display. HP recommends that you read the specific HP BladeSystem c3000 or c7000 Enclosure User Guide for enclosure specific information before proceeding with Onboard Administrator setup. This user guide provides information on the initial setup and operation of the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator, and it also covers use of the Onboard Administrator GUI and the use of the enclosure Insight Display. The Onboard Administrator CLI Guide covers the use of the CLI. The HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator provides several features designed to simplify management of c-Class blades and interconnects. The BladeSystem c7000 enclosure can be configured with redundant Onboard Administrator modules to provide uninterrupted manageability of the entire enclosure and blades in the event of a failure of a single Onboard Administrator module. The following table indicates which Onboard Administrator feature is enhanced when the enclosure contains redundant Onboard Administrator modules. For an enclosure with only a single Onboard Administrator module, the table indicates the behavior of the enclosure if the single Onboard Administrator module has failed or is removed. Enclosure Dynamic Power Capping, introduced in Onboard Administrator firmware version 2.31, is only available in HP BladeSystem enclosures with redundant Onboard Administrator modules installed. Benefits of using a redundant Onboard Administrator versus a single Onboard Administrator Onboard Administrator feature

Onboard Administrator module replacement and stored settings When replacing an Onboard Administrator or if a failure occurs when using redundant Onboard Administrators:

Removing an Onboard Administrator module in a c7000 enclosure with redundant Onboard Administrator modules installed results in the other Onboard Administrator module immediately becoming the Active Onboard Administrator if it was the Standby Onboard Administrator with only loss of the replaced Onboard Administrator network settings. If Onboard Administrator firmware versions are identical, manually update the replaced Onboard Administrator network settings using the Insight Display and then the replaced Onboard Administrator module will then be synchronized on all enclosure settings by the active Onboard Administrator.

Introduction

If the firmware versions are not identical, the Insight Display, Onboard Administrator GUI or Onboard Administrator CLI can be used to synchronize the firmware versions to the most recent version in the modules, followed by synchronization of the Active Onboard Administrator configuration settings to the new Standby Onboard Administrator module.

Removing an OA1 module in a c3000 enclosure with redundant Onboard Administrators installed results in the OA2 module becoming the Active Onboard Administrator if it was the Standby Onboard Administrator with only the loss of network settings on OA1. Manually update the replaced Onboard Administrator network settings using the Insight Display, GUI or CLI. If the firmware versions are identical, the replaced Onboard Administrator is synchronized by all enclosure settings by the Active Onboard Administrator. If the firmware versions are not identical, the Insight Display, Onboard Administrator GUI or Onboard Administrator CLI can be used to synchronize the firmware versions to the most recent version in the modules, followed by synchronization of the Active Onboard Administrator configuration settings to the new Standby Onboard Administrator module.

Removing an OA2 module in a c3000 enclosure with redundant Onboard Administrators installed requires removing the entire OA tray with both OA modules, removing OA1 module from the OA Tray, and plugging this OA1 module in the new OA tray which contains OA2 and then inserting the OA Tray with OA1installed into the c3000 enclosure with only the loss of network settings on OA2. Manually update the OA2 network settings using the Insight Display, GUI or CLI. If the firmware versions are not identical, the replaced Onboard Administrator module is synchronized on all enclosure settings by the Active Onboard Administrator. OA1 powers up as the Active OA and check the firmware version of the replaced OA2. If the firmware versions are not identical, the Insight Display, Onboard Administrator GUI or Onboard Administrator CLI can be used to synchronize the firmware versions to the most recent version in the modules, followed by synchronization of the Active Onboard Administrator configuration settings to the new Standby Onboard Administrator module.

Identifying components To identify a component. Onboard Administrator reads a FRU EEPROM that contains specific factory information about the component such as product name. the corresponding ports are also disabled. Protocol SSH Telnet SMTP Browser access Browser access encrypted SNMP get/set SNMP traps LDAP Terminal services pass-through from PC to iLO Virtual media from PC to iLO Remote syslog 3389 17988 514 80 443 161 162 636 Incoming port 22 23 Outgoing port 25 80 443 LDAP and Remote syslog port number can be changed. All FRU EEPROMs in c-Class enclosures are powered up. When you insert a component into a bay. the following ports must be open on any router between Onboard Administrator and any computers used to access or monitor Onboard Administrator. Onboard Administrator accesses server blade FRU EEPROMs through iLO 2 management processors. and serial number. To use Enclosure Dynamic Power Capping. even if the component is turned off. Onboard Administrator overview Managing a c-Class enclosure involves multiple functions: • • • • Detecting component insertion and removal Identifying components including required connectivity Managing power and cooling Controlling components including remote control and remote consoles Detecting component insertion and removal Onboard Administrator provides component control in c-Class enclosures.To access the CLI management and notification features. Introduction 12 . Onboard Administrator directly reads the FRU EEPROMs.7 is required. Component management begins after the component is detected and identified. part number. the Onboard Administrator immediately recognizes and identifies the component. If a protocol is disabled. Onboard Administrator can identify the component before granting power. the Onboard Administrator deletes the information about that component. and Insight Display. For devices such as fans. Therefore. The Onboard Administrator detects components in BladeSystem c-Class enclosures through presence signals on each bay. If you remove a component from a bay. power supplies. iLO firmware 1.

Managing power and cooling The most important Onboard Administrator tasks are power control and thermal management.• The server blades contain several FRU EEPROMs: one on the server board. and with a microcontroller to control options such as storage blades. and Ethernet controllers. which is an RJ-45 jack providing Ethernet communications not only to Onboard Administrator. Onboard Administrator provides virtual power control. virtual power control. Server blade control options include auto login to the iLO 2 web interface and remote server consoles. Interfaces Each c-Class enclosure has several external management interfaces that connect the user to Onboard Administrator. Step 11 takes less than a minute for ProLiant server blades using the enclosure management Ethernet network. Onboard Administrator communicates with iLO 2 to control servers. but might take several minutes in the case of the Integrity blades as they use an i2c bus between Onboard Administrator and the server for communications. USB. and boot order control. Controlling components Onboard Administrator uses embedded management interfaces to provide detailed information and health status for all bays in the enclosure including presence detection signals in each bay. which contains server information and embedded NIC information. Server blade control options also include extensive server hardware information including BIOS and iLO 2 firmware versions. After components are powered. Thermal Logic changes fan speed in different zones in the enclosure to minimize power consumption and maximize cooling efficiency. The number of installed mezzanine cards on each server increases the time in this step as each card is identified and verified. For components in device bays in the front of each enclosure. During step 11 discovers the identity of all installed components. NIC and option card port IDs. For interconnect modules. Onboard Administrator provides easy-to-understand port mapping information for each server blade and interconnect module in the enclosure. Onboard Administrator also offers information on firmware versions for most components in the enclosure and can be used to update those components. While Onboard Administrator is identifying components. Onboard Administrator can remotely control the power state of all components in BladeSystem c-Class enclosures. and one on each installed mezzanine option cards. the Onboard Administrator begins thermal management with Thermal Logic. Then. The primary external management interface is the management port for Onboard Administrator. the progress appears in steps on the Insight Display. dedicated serial consoles. server name. This includes Introduction 13 . Before power is provided to a server blade. The Thermal Logic feature in BladeSystem c-Class minimizes power consumption by the enclosure fan subsystem by reading temperature sensors across the entire enclosure. but also to every device or interconnect bay with a management processor. • • The NIC and mezzanine option FRU information informs Onboard Administrator of the type of interconnects each server requires. Onboard Administrator compares this information with the FRU EEPROMs on installed interconnect modules to check for electronic keying errors. and management Ethernet connections. i2c. A separate microcontroller controls power to the interconnect modules. and port mapping. serial.

iLO 2 communication for the server blades and any interconnect module using the c-Class embedded Ethernet management network. The Insight Display configures key settings in the Onboard Administrator including the IP address of the Onboard Administrator. Onboard Administrator user interfaces Four user interfaces to the Onboard Administrator allow control and provide information about the enclosure and installed components: • • • • Web interface GUI Scriptable CLI Insight Display Optional KVM Module Remote network access to the Onboard Administrator GUI and CLI is available through the management Ethernet port. The VGA connector attaches to an external VGA monitor and external USB keyboard and mouse to provide access to all the server video consoles or the Onboard Administrator CLI or Insight Display. The Active c7000 Onboard Administrator Module with KVM provides the same Enclosure KVM capabilities as the optional c3000 KVM Module. USB ports on Onboard Administrator are used to connect external DVD drives to support the enclosure DVD feature. Remove the sticker to use the USB port with firmware version 2.00 or later. Introduction 14 . A serial port on the Onboard Administrator module provides full out-of-band CLI access to the Onboard Administrator and is used for Onboard Administrator firmware flash recovery. The Serial Port of the Onboard Administrator is available for local CLI access and Onboard Administrator flash recovery. The USB port on the Onboard Administrator may have a sticker on the port that says reserved for future use. In addition. The KVM Module option for the c3000 Enclosure plugs into the rear bay adjacent to interconnect module 1 and provides a VGA connector and two more USB connectors for the c3000 enclosure. The Standby Onboard Administrator Module with KVM will only provide access to the Onboard Administrator CLI login which enables the logged in user to force a takeover. such as Virtual Connect Manager.or remotely through the Onboard Administrator GUI. The new c7000 Onboard Administrator Module with KVM adds a VGA connector to the c7000 Onboard Administrator. All c-Class enclosures support two enclosure link connectors that provide private communications among enclosures linked with CAT5 cable. you can order an optional internal DVD drive for the c3000 Enclosure. enabling the Enclosure KVM feature for the c7000 Enclosure. The c-Class enclosure link-up port is also available as the service port for temporary local Ethernet access to the Onboard Administrators and devices in linked enclosures using either the GUI or CLI. Each c-Class enclosure includes an embedded Insight Display on the front of the enclosure which provides status and information on all the bays in a c-Class enclosure and diagnostic information if the Onboard Administrator detects a problem in the enclosure. An external USB hub (not included) must be used to connect a USB DVD drive at the same time as the KVM USB for keyboard and mouse for simultaneous Enclosure KVM and Enclosure DVD functionality. This KVM module enables the enclosure KVM feature for the c3000 enclosure. the enclosure link-up connector provides an enclosure service port that allows you to temporarily connect a laptop personal computer to any linked enclosure Onboard Administrator for local diagnostics and debugging. Access the Insight Display directly through the buttons on the display . In addition.

or user. Use of the KVM Module to access server consoles is protected by server operating system username/passwords. Then log into the Onboard Administrator GUI and use the First Time Setup Wizard Introduction 15 . If the user has DHCP and connects the Onboard Administrator management port to the DHCP server. Onboard Administrator allows single point access. server blade iLO 2 management processors and many interconnect modules default to DHCP for their management IP address. followed by use of the Onboard Administrator GUI First Time Wizard or Onboard Administrator CLI to complete the reset of the enclosure settings. Onboard Administrator authentication Security is maintained for all Onboard Administrator user interfaces through user authentication. Two-factor authentication allows even tighter security for the user management session to Onboard Administrator. or an LDAP account.configure each Onboard Administrator with a static IP address using the Insight Display. Thus. an IT administrator can automatically propagate management commands-such as changing the enclosure power mode-throughout the linked enclosures. Role-based user accounts Onboard Administrator provides configurable user accounts that can provide complete isolation of multiple administrative roles such as server. For example. where Onboard Administrator contacts the defined LDAP server to check the user credentials. you must configure each Onboard Administrator IP address and then all the individual device and interconnect module management IP addresses by using one of the following methods: • Recommended Practice . User privileges allow information access but no control capability. If you do not have a DHCP server for assigning IP addresses to management processors. the administrator can use single sign-on to log in to a single Onboard Administrator and use the web GUI to graphically view and manage the HP BladeSystem c-Class components in up to four linked enclosures. Onboard Administrator stores the passwords for local user accounts and can be configured to use LDAP authentication for user group accounts. and provides server video console access. User accounts created in Onboard Administrator define three user privilege levels and the component bays to which each level is granted access. The Onboard Administrator modules. Running Onboard Administrator for the first time Setting up a c-Class enclosure using the Onboard Administrator is simplified by using the Insight Display first time installation wizard. operator. User accounts are configured with specific device bay or interconnect bay permissions and one of three privilege levels: administrator. Rather than requiring separate logins to multiple resources (once to each enclosure and/or once to every server management processor). and interconnect modules supporting and configured to use the Onboard Administrator internal management network will all automatically obtain DHCP addresses from the user DHCP server. The Optional KVM Module protects against changes to server power or enclosure DVD connection using the LCD PIN code. LAN and SAN. Operator privileges allow full information access and control of permitted bays. The account can be a local account where the password is stored on Onboard Administrator.

Some devices, particularly HP Onboard Administrator, can have links to various system forms pages listed beneath their main links in the left tree navigation view. Form pages contain input text boxes, radio buttons, and other HTML input element and are used to administer settings related to the device to which they belong. For example, you can use the HP Onboard Administrator system forms page to change IP address settings or update firmware. These forms are all linked under the HP Onboard Administrator parent element. When you click a system forms link, the device to which the form page belongs is selected in the graphical view. For example, clicking the Firmware Update link for the Active HP Onboard Administrator selects the Active HP Onboard Administrator device in the graphical view. Links to system forms do not display status icons.

Graphical view navigation
The second component of the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator GUI navigation system is a graphical representation of the physical enclosure, called the graphical view. The graphical view consists of two subcomponents: a front view and a rear view. The following image shows the graphical view of a typical c7000 enclosure.

All functions and features for the graphical view navigation are the same for both the c3000 and the c7000 except where noted. Selecting a device To select a device, click the graphical representation of the device in the front or rear graphical view. When you select a device, its surrounding border changes from gray to light blue to indicate it is the currently selected device. Selecting a device in the graphical view selects the corresponding device in the left navigation tree view. Every time you select a device from any part of the navigation system, the rest of the navigation reflects that device selection event and updates accordingly. Status reporting The graphical view reports the status of every device in the enclosure. The status of each device is indicated on the device by a small status icon. No status icon appears for a device that is working properly and has an OK status. However, any other status codes appear as status icons on the device. The graphical view does not report the presence or absence of hard drives in the server blade or storage blade. Device security Although the front and rear graphical views are both affected by user permissions, security on the graphical view is handled differently from the left tree view. If the user does not have permission to access a device, a blank bay appears regardless of whether a device is present in that bay, and a padlock icon in the bay table cell appears, indicating that the bay is locked to the current user. The user cannot select a locked bay. When the user's mouse hovers over the locked bay, a message appears, indicating that the user does not have permission to access the device in that bay.

Topology modes
Onboard Administrator supports three topology modes which are determined by the selection made on the sign in screen prior to signing in. The three topology modes are:

Rack View 73

Local Mode—Used to manage a single enclosure when more than one enclosure can be selected. Onboard Administrator ignores all topology changes. This mode is useful when you do not want to change topology by adding linked enclosures. Linked Mode—Used to manage a single enclosure when no other enclosures are attached. You can use Linked Mode to allow the addition of new enclosures as they are added to the interlink. As long as no new enclosures are connected, Onboard Administrator appears to be in Local Mode. All topology changes that occur while signed in are displayed by Onboard Administrator. This mode provides an unrestricted view of enclosures connected to the interlink. Fixed Mode—Used to manage more than one, but not all enclosures. Only the topology changes affecting the current topology are displayed by Onboard Administrator. This mode is useful when monitoring a subset of the total enclosures connected to the interlink.

If the active mode is set for a single enclosure and one or more enclosures are connected,if you want to ensure that the additional enclosures are not visible in the enclosure topology, you must sign out and back in without selecting a linked enclosure.

Rack Topology tab
The Rack Topology tab shows a graphical representation of the physical enclosure, called the graphical view. The graphical view consists of a front view and a rear view.

In cases where HP SIM is used. Role-based user accounts Role-based user accounts on Onboard Administrator serve two purposes: to control the functions a user has access to on Onboard Administrator and to control permissions a temporary user account adopts on iLO when autologin is used. There are two major aspects of role-based user accounts on Onboard Administrator: bay permissions and a user privilege level. If you select a user with Administrator ACL or OA permission. password.

You must enter a username and password to perform the User Authentication and Directory Group tests. A failed test reports that the IP address stored for the directory server is not a valid IPv4 address. Ping directory Server A simple ping test is performed after it is verified that there is a valid IP address or domain name for the directory server. The Test Settings tab is used to run and report the tests to the administrator. The tests terminate when an error occurs. If a user already has a certificate mapped to an account. you must click the Apply button. A successful connection attempt indicates that the directory service is running and available at the specified directory server and port. A failed test reports that Onboard Administrator is unable to resolve the Directory Server host name. If the LDAP server configuration uses IP addresses instead of a DNS name. A failed test reports that Onboard Administrator cannot establish a network path to the directory server. Connect to Directory Server This test attempts to connect to the specified directory server IP address and service port. the SHA1 fingerprint of the certificate appears. The administrator must verify the IP address entered and correct the IP address. it contains a list of tests with the current status of Not Run. Directory Server DNS Lookup The DNS lookup test determines if Onboard Administrator can resolve the domain name of the LDAP server. the SHA1 fingerprint of the user certificate appears. Otherwise the test reports Not Run for a status. and then select the Test Settings tab. The administrator must verify that the directory server host name is correct and that the host name is correct for the directory server. The administrator should verify the host name or IP address.

A successful test reports that the IP address stored for the directory server is a valid IPv4 address. Configuring the HP BladeSystem c7000 enclosure and enclosure devices 194 . then this test reports Not Run. When the page initially appears. The following tests are performed in the order listed. A successful test reports that Onboard Administrator can establish a network path to the directory server. Therefore. Directory Server IP Address If the LDAP configuration specifies an IP address instead of a DNS. Directory settings test tab The Directory Test Settings tab provides Onboard Administrator administrators with a tool to ensure that the configuration information provided allows the directory user access to the Onboard Administrator and the resources in the enclosure. A successful test reports that Onboard Administrator is able to resolve the Directory Server host name using domain name.When the certificate is successfully uploaded. then this test validates that the IP address is a valid IPv4 address. The Test Settings tab applies only to the current settings. The tests are run in the order that they appear in the table when you click the Test Settings button. The ping test sends a maximum of four ping packets to the directory server and reports success or failure.

A failed test reports that Onboard Administrator cannot establish a connection to the directory server. The administrator must verify the host name or address and port number. A successful test reports that Onboard Administrator was able to validate the directory server certificate against the certificates stored on Onboard Administrator for the specified directory server. The network service is available as a secure SSL connection. Otherwise the search DN used to log in is constructed as follows. A successful test reports the directory group with the highest privilege levels for the authenticated user. The successful test reports that there is network service available. A failed test reports that the network service is not available as a secure SSL connection and the Onboard Administrator does not allow this type of connection. The result from this test identifies the search context that was successful in authenticating the user. User authentication proceeds first by using the username and password provided.

To prepare the directory: 1. 3. and then add a user named Test Operator in this group. 2.Enabling LDAP Directory Services Authentication to Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services The Microsoft implementation of LDAP over SSL requires that the Domain Controllers install DC certificates from the CA of the organization. Create an Active Directory group named OA Admins. HP strongly recommends using an Enterprise Root CA to minimize the complexities of requesting and accepting DC certificates from a stand-alone CA. similar groups would already exist in some form. This process occurs when the Enterprise Root CA service is added to a server in Active Directory.
