TYAN S7056WGM3NR-2T (Intel C602) Server Motherboard Review

Remote Management


Basic remote management is by an IPMI 2.0 compliant baseboard management controller (BMC), which supports storage over IP and remote platform-flash through a USB 2.0 virtual hub.




First, make sure you have IPMI enabled in the BIOS and have a wired connection to the IPMI port at the rear of the motherboard.


In order to connect to the IPMI port, first find the IP address on the machine you want to connect. Then, enter that address into your web browser on the control machine. You will see the login screen if all goes well.




This is the main dashboard for the TYAN S7056WGM3NR-2T.

If you look down the left hand side of the screen, you will see a button to launch remote control.




You will need Java installed for remote control to work, and you might have to reduce security controls for Java in order to be able to do this. We had to drop security controls down to medium for this to work.


From here, you can operate the server just as you would if you were sitting at the machine.




The next tab is the Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) tab.




The next tab is Sensor Health. You can check temperatures and voltages of different parts of the machine.




The next tab is Configuration, and you can see on the drop-down menu what items you can adjust or monitor here.




The Remote Control tab allows you to do resets and power on and off from here.




The last tab is Maintenance. From here, you can update the BIOS and Firmware or restore to factory defaults.
