General configuration

Note: The sample screens that appear in this document might differ slightly from the screens displayed by your system. Screen content varies based on the type of BladeCenter® unit that you are using and the firmware versions and options that are installed.
This section provides instructions for configuring the BladeCenter unit to operate using SOL. You must perform the following procedures:

Perform the SOL configuration that is shared by all BladeCenter components using the management-module Web interface. The management-module Web interface supports only configuration and monitoring of the command-line interface and SOL and cannot be used to start command-line interface or SOL sessions.

You can also perform some SOL configuration using the management-module command-line interface or the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). See the BladeCenter Management Module Command-Line Interface Reference Guide for information about the management-module command-line interface and instructions for using it.
