The HPE Superdome X has a built-in and always available platform and partition management system. By integrating the management into the server platform, Hewlett Packard Enterprise ensures that every Superdome X comes with the full set of management features, and simplifies the task of integrating Superdome X into the data center. The purpose of the HPE Superdome X management system is to: •Provide built-in tools to manage hardware and provide mission-critical system availability (inventory, monitor, diagnose, configure, maintain, and self-healing) •Make it easier for users and applications to manage partitions (create, modify, inventory, start, stop, connect console, and so on) The HPE Superdome X manageability system provides a user-friendly experience, and the OA makes managing the HPE Superdome X much easier by centralizing the control and building the management into the hardware and firmware of the system. It provides the following features: •Intuitive GUI interface makes it easier for system administrators to navigate the intricacies of the HPE Superdome X management. GUI status displays update automatically when system status changes (dynamic Web technology). •CLI for easy scripting and power user convenience •Console for each nPartition, simultaneously available from OA GUI or CLI. •Sharable enclosure DVD or remotely connected iLO virtual media can be used to attach a DVD-ROM to nPartitions. •OA controlled power management features across the Superdome X HPE nPartitions •Built-in Error Analysis Engine constantly monitors all system hardware, analyzes log and telemetry data, and determines corrective actions for highest system uptime (often performing corrective actions automatically) •HPE Superdome X OA integrates with Insight Remote Support for data center wide fault management visibility and tie-in to the HPE support services. Onboard Firmware Manager This functionality can scan a partition and report components with incompatible firmware versions. Single nPars, or the entire Superdome X, with mismatched firmware due to parts replacements or system upgrades, can have firmware updated to a consistent level with just a click of a button, and the partitions with consistent firmware levels fully validated for the most reliable operation. Onboard Partition ManagerThe Onboard Partition Manager is a set of commands built into the OA to manage partitions. With these tools, partitions can be built and configured to meet changing workloads as necessary. There are three main aspects of partition management: 1. Partition configuration and re-configuration 2. Partition start/stop 3. Management of the OS running on the partition The Onboard Partition Manager focuses on the first two aspects, partition configuration and partition start/stop. The core of partition management functionality now resides on the built-in Onboard Administrator.
