There are several ways that you can do remote management and IPMI on the RD340. Just like any server with IPMI, simply enter in the IP address, which you find in the BIOS under server management/BMC network configuration, into your web browser. In our case, that was 192.168.1.13. After that, you see the login screen.
On the back of the RD340, there is a dedicated LAN port for BMC, and we connected to that for our tests.
The login information for the Lenovo ThinkServer RD340 is:
Here we are looking at the home screen for the ThinkServer management. The rest of the menus are typical for IPMI/BMC setups, so we will not show all of them.
If you have the management controller premium module installed, you will see the menu options for KVM. These will not show up if there is no module installed.
Hitting the launch Java KVM client will allow you to remote right into the server.
After entering the Java KVM client, we can now control the machine from the BIOS level all the way to the desktop.
The next method to control the server is with a software package called EasyManage. Instal EasyManage on your host machine and use this to control many servers in your network.
After installing EasyManage and then running it, enter the login information below:
This is a typical screen for EasyManage. This program has many features that are useful in managing a number of different servers.
