The BIOS for this motherboard is standard for server motherboards, so we will only show a few BIOS screens.
This is the main BIOS screen, which shows basic system information.
The advanced tab brings you to the main advanced screen.
The advanced CPU tab shows the CPU options for this board.
For our tests, we disable all power saving features.
Looking at the SATA configuration tab, we can see the features that you can set on this motherboard.
The SUC Configuration tab allows you to activate the onboard SAS storage control unit.
Here you can set the boot device and order for your system.
Our motherboard did not come with a driver disk. Over on the Supermicro website for this motherboard, you can find a link to a driver CD that you can download and burn to a CD.
We really like that Supermicro has included a full driver CD that we can download instead of different driver packages that we have to piece together ourselves.
Remote Access is supplied by IPMI 2.0 with virtual media over LAN and KVM over LAN support. Be sure to have a LAN cable plugged into the dedicated IPMI LAN port.
We find our remote access IP address located in the BIOS under the IPMI Tab. In our case, this was 220.127.116.11. Enter that into your browser and you will see the login screen.
As a best practice, administrative users should change factory default Username/Password logins before connecting any new server to their network.
After logging in, we come to the home screen and system information is displayed.
The next tab is Server Health. Here we can see sensor readings and event logs.
Next up is the Configuration tab.
Under the Remote Control tab, we can launch the remote KVM console and get access to the machine. This will launch a java console and then take you into the remote access screen just as if you are sitting down at the machine itself.
Now we are looking at the Virtual Media Tab. This section allows you to upload/share images to the BMC.
The Maintenance Tab allows you to update, reset and restore to factory defaults various systems on the IPMI device.
The Miscellaneous Tab has controls for Post Snooping and UID control.
