    In the compute node information area, set LCD UID indicator to to illuminate the physical UID indicator of the compute node.

  • Switch to the iMana 200 or iBMC WebUI.

    In the compute node information area, click the BMC IP address configured.


Administrators with KVM permission can click the iMana 200 or iBMC IP address to switch to the iMana 200 login page or the iBMC home page. Other uses can switch to the iMana 200 or iBMC login page.

Alarm and board information area

Shows the alarms, specifications, and software version information of the chassis or a component.

  • Alarms involving network ports of switch modules can be manually cleared. Switch module panel ports include 10GE ports 1 to 16, GE ports 1 to 12, and 10GE expansion ports 1 to 8.
  • You can view optical module and DAC cable installation status, asset information, and PHY link status. Only optical modules support query of port information on a real-time basis.

    If a port on the panel of the CX620 is not populated with an optical module, the port Link Status is Invalid State.

  • You can view the TPM information if a compute node comes with a TPM.

After clicking a blank area in the emulated chassis panel to display chassis information, you can perform any of the following operations:

  • View and edit compute node alias.

    Click the Blade Alias tab.

  • View and edit slot aliases of compute nodes.

    Click the Slot Aliases tab.

  • Export chassis hardware information.

    Click the Export tab.

  • View and edit asset numbers of compute nodes and switch modules.

    Click the Asset No. tab.

After clicking a compute node in the emulated chassis panel to display compute node information, you can perform any of the following operations:

  • Export of the compute node.
    1. Click the Component Information tab.
    2. Click Export.

      The exported information includes the component information, serial number, and iMana 200 or iBMC MAC address of the compute node.

  • Generate a diagram of the physical connection between the NICs on the compute node and the switch modules. For details, see Viewing the Network Card Physical Connection.

Copyright and time area

Shows the copyright notice and the MM910 system time.

Click MM time to display the Timezone & NTP page.

Viewing the Network Card Physical Connection

  1. Click a compute node in the emulated chassis panel to display compute node information, as shown in Figure 7-1.
    Figure 7-1 Compute node information
  2. Click the NIC Connection Diagram tab.
  3. Click Generate.

    A diagram of the physical connection between the NICs on the compute node and the switch modules is generated, as shown in Figure 7-2. You can learn the types of the NICs and ports, PCIe information, MAC addresses, and WWPNs.

    Figure 7-2 NIC physical connection diagram (example)
    • PCIe is expressed in the format "Root port bus:Root port device:Root port function-Network port function".
    • Grayed-out areas indicate slots without switch modules.
    • Solid lines indicate normal connection between network ports and switch or pass-through modules, and dotted lines indicate unknown-state connections.
    • Dotted lines are displayed for CX116, V5 switch modules, and FC/IB/OPA switch modules even if port connections are normal. You can query the port connection status through the OS of the compute node.
    • If the port MAC addresses or WWNs are not configured through stateless computing, the default data is displayed.

KVM via MM

  1. Click KVM via MM.

    A Security Warning is displayed.

  2. Click Yes.

    The Warning-Security page is displayed.

  3. Click Yes.

    The remote KVM page is displayed, as shown in Figure 7-3.

    Figure 7-3 KVM page
    • More than one tab can be opened simultaneously. However, more than four open tabs may cause the program to become unresponsive.
    • The KVM and VMM functions are unavailable after a user logs in to the HMM WebUI using an IPv6 address.
  4. Click the tab corresponding to the compute node number, and choose a connection mode.

    The real-time interface of the compute node is displayed.

    • Shared mode: Two clients can simultaneously connect to the keyboard, video, and monitor (KVM) to operate the compute node.
    • Private mode: Only one client can connect to the KVM at a time.

    Shared mode displays the interface and operations on both clients and is therefore not recommended for security reasons.

  5. Click the icons on the menu bar in the upper area of the interface to perform related operations.

    Table 7-4 describes the icons on the menu bar.

    • Power On: Power on the compute node.
    • Forced Power Off: Forcibly power off the compute node within 6 seconds after this menu is selected.
    • Forced System Reset: Perform a cold reset on the compute node.
    • Forced Power Cycle: Perform a soft restart on the compute node, that is, log out of the system and then restart the compute node.
    • USB Reset: Reset the USB keyboard and mouse.
    • Single Mouse: Hide the mouse on the local PC and display only the mouse on the desktop of the compute node.

    Returns to the previous page.


    Before performing Forced Power Off, Forced System Reset, Forced Power Cycle, and USB Reset, stop the services that are running. Otherwise, the services will not be affected.

    On the toolbar, Num, Caps, and Scroll indicate the keyboard indicator status for the compute node.

    In Linux, the Scroll Lock key is disabled by default. To make the Scroll indicator status on the compute node desktop respond to the local keyboard input, enable the Scroll Lock key. For details, see Scroll Key Indicator on the Virtual KVM Does Not Respond.
