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.

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.

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. When you insert a component into a bay. The Onboard Administrator detects components in BladeSystem c-Class enclosures through presence signals on each bay. the Onboard Administrator immediately recognizes and identifies the component. All FRU EEPROMs in c-Class enclosures are powered up. Onboard Administrator accesses server blade FRU EEPROMs through iLO 2 management processors. the Onboard Administrator deletes the information about that component. Identifying components To identify a component. iLO firmware 1.

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

Access the Insight Display directly through the buttons on the display . Remove the sticker to use the USB port with firmware version 2. you can order an optional internal DVD drive for the c3000 Enclosure. 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 Insight Display configures key settings in the Onboard Administrator including the IP address of the Onboard Administrator.or remotely through the Onboard Administrator GUI. The USB port on the Onboard Administrator may have a sticker on the port that says reserved for future use. This KVM module enables the enclosure KVM feature for the c3000 enclosure. The Active c7000 Onboard Administrator Module with KVM provides the same Enclosure KVM capabilities as the optional c3000 KVM Module. such as Virtual Connect Manager. 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. 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 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. The Serial Port of the Onboard Administrator is available for local CLI access and Onboard Administrator flash recovery. 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. All c-Class enclosures support two enclosure link connectors that provide private communications among enclosures linked with CAT5 cable. 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. In addition. In addition. 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. 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. Introduction 14 . The new c7000 Onboard Administrator Module with KVM adds a VGA connector to the c7000 Onboard Administrator.iLO 2 communication for the server blades and any interconnect module using the c-Class embedded Ethernet management network. enabling the Enclosure KVM feature for the c7000 Enclosure.00 or later. USB ports on Onboard Administrator are used to connect external DVD drives to support the enclosure DVD feature. 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.

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. If you do not have a DHCP server for assigning IP addresses to management processors. all iLO 2. an IT administrator can automatically propagate management commands-such as changing the enclosure power mode-throughout the linked enclosures. User privileges allow information access but no control capability. The account can be a local account where the password is stored on Onboard Administrator. User accounts are configured with specific device bay or interconnect bay permissions and one of three privilege levels: administrator. Thus. The Onboard Administrator modules. User accounts created in Onboard Administrator define three user privilege levels and the component bays to which each level is granted access. 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. Operator privileges allow full information access and control of permitted bays. 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. Onboard Administrator stores the passwords for local user accounts and can be configured to use LDAP authentication for user group accounts. or user. The Optional KVM Module protects against changes to server power or enclosure DVD connection using the LCD PIN code. followed by use of the Onboard Administrator GUI First Time Wizard or Onboard Administrator CLI to complete the reset of the enclosure settings. then the Onboard Administrator modules. Role-based user accounts Onboard Administrator provides configurable user accounts that can provide complete isolation of multiple administrative roles such as server. LAN and SAN.The Optional KVM Module provides access to the Onboard Administrator CLI through the external VGA monitor and USB keyboard. The Insight Display can be protected by an LCD PIN code or completely disabled. For example.configure each Onboard Administrator with a static IP address using the Insight Display. Rather than requiring separate logins to multiple resources (once to each enclosure and/or once to every server management processor). server blade iLO 2 management processors and many interconnect modules default to DHCP for their management IP address. Use of the KVM Module to access server consoles is protected by server operating system username/passwords. If the user has DHCP and connects the Onboard Administrator management port to the DHCP server. and provides server video console access. or an LDAP account. where Onboard Administrator contacts the defined LDAP server to check the user credentials. Onboard Administrator allows single point access. Onboard Administrator requires the user to log in to the web GUI or CLI with an account and password. 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 . An account with administrator privileges including Onboard Administrator bay permission can create or edit all user accounts on an enclosure.

An alternative to manual configuration is to upload a enclosure configuration file to the active Onboard Administrator using either the GUI or CLI with an HTTP. The initial credentials to log into a new Onboard Administrator module are printed on a label on each module. For ProLiant server blades. Enabling EBIPA for a bay will allow that server or interconnect module to be replaced and the new module will automatically obtain the previously configured IP address for that bay. the switch may require power cycling to use the new setting.or use the Administrator local account to individually update all user passwords after restoring a previously saved enclosure configuration file. The recommended practice to create an enclosure configuration file is to use the GUI. The Onboard Administrator will not save user passwords when it saves a configuration file. This password must be captured by the installer and communicated to the remote Administrator for the first remote login to the Onboard Administrator GUI or Onboard Administrator CLI. Introduction 16 . you must connect to each server blade from SUV port (using the SUV cable included with each enclosure) and configure the iLO IP address manually during POST by pressing F8 to access the iLO Option ROM settings.

The way in which the tree view is rendered depends on several factors including user permissions. which displays a physical picture of the enclosure.Navigating Onboard Administrator Navigation overview The main HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator navigation system consists of a tree view. Tree view The tree view aids in navigating through enclosure devices and functions for multiple enclosures in a hierarchal manner. Navigating Onboard Administrator 66 . You can navigate through an enclosure's devices and functions through either of these views. and device status. which lists all of the system devices on the left side of the main page and remains visible at all times and a graphical view. device availability. If a user is configured to be an operator or user. some options might not be visible in the tree view.

When a category is expanded (by clicking the white plus sign in the blue box to the left of the category). the status icon indicates a cumulative worst-case status of all the devices in the same category. Differences between the two enclosures are evident in the graphical view navigation. an icon next to the category name can indicate a degraded status of the affected system.The physical appearance of the tree view for the c3000 and c7000 are analogous. In the case of multiple components reporting status. One of the main purposes of the tree view is to allow navigation using categories based on the major systems within the enclosure. Individual device pages Navigating Onboard Administrator 67 .

Clicking the link for an individual device selects the device, opens the device detail page, and selects the device in the graphical view in the right frame of the GUI. Individual device pages contain detailed information about the selected device and any other functions related to that device.

Category summary pages Category summary pages contain summary information for each of the devices in that category. For example, clicking the Device Bays link opens a bay summary page. Each parent element in the tree works in this manner. When you click a category summary link, no devices are selected in the graphical view navigation.

System forms pages

Navigating Onboard Administrator 68

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.

Navigating Onboard Administrator 69

The following image shows the graphical view of a typical c3000 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.

If a user already has a certificate mapped to an account. Connect to Directory Server This test attempts to connect to the specified directory server IP address and service port. 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. A successful test reports that Onboard Administrator is able to resolve the Directory Server host name using domain name. The administrator must verify that the directory server host name is correct and that the host name is correct for the directory server. Otherwise the test reports Not Run for a status. The tests are run in the order that they appear in the table when you click the Test Settings button. If the LDAP server configuration uses IP addresses instead of a DNS name. The Test Settings tab applies only to the current settings. then this test validates that the IP address is a valid IPv4 address. When the page initially appears. A successful test reports that the IP address stored for the directory server is a valid IPv4 address. and then select the Test Settings tab. You must enter a username and password to perform the User Authentication and Directory Group tests. the SHA1 fingerprint of the certificate appears. A failed test reports that Onboard Administrator is unable to resolve the Directory Server host name. A failed test reports that the IP address stored for the directory server is not a valid IPv4 address. The administrator must verify the IP address entered and correct the IP address. The administrator should verify the host name or IP address. The following tests are performed in the order listed. The ping test sends a maximum of four ping packets to the directory server and reports success or failure. 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. 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. Any user with administrator privileges can delete their certificate and upload a new user certificate. then this test reports Not Run. Configuring the HP BladeSystem c7000 enclosure and enclosure devices 194 . The Test Settings tab is used to run and report the tests to the administrator. Therefore. 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. A successful test reports that Onboard Administrator can establish a network path to the directory server. Directory Server IP Address If the LDAP configuration specifies an IP address instead of a DNS. it contains a list of tests with the current status of Not Run.When the certificate is successfully uploaded. A failed test reports that Onboard Administrator cannot establish a network path to the directory server. The tests terminate when an error occurs. after making changes.

A failed test reports that the directory server certificate stored on Onboard Administrator does not match the certificate provided on the SSL connection. A failed test reports the authenticated user does not have any authorization on Onboard Administratorbecause the user does not belong to any of the configured directory groups. The unsuccessful test reports that the network service is not available. the configured directory group to which the user belongs is identified.

If the directory server SSL certificate has not been loaded. Otherwise the search DN used to log in is constructed as follows. A failed test reports that Onboard Administrator cannot establish a connection to the directory server. The successful test reports that there is network service available. cn=<username>. then this test does not run. Connect using SSL This test verifies that the directory server is providing the directory service over an SSL connection. If this fails. 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. A successful test reports the directory group with the highest privilege levels for the authenticated user. then each search context is attempted. User Authentication This test attempts to log in the user to the directory using the username and password provided. A user might belong to multiple directory groups. The administrator must identify a directory server which supports SSL connections or reconfigure the directory server to use SSL connections. Directory Group After a user has successfully authenticated and logged into Onboard Administrator. so the directory group that gives the user the most privileges is identified.A successful test reports that Onboard Administrator can establish a connection to the directory server at the host name or address specified and the port number specified. The administrator must verify the host name or address and port number. The result from this test identifies the search context that was successful in authenticating the user. The network service is available as a secure SSL connection.
