The CloudBridge 4000/5000 appliances have an Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI), also known as the Lights out Management (LOM), port on the front panel of the appliance. By using the LOM, you can remotely monitor and manage the appliance, independently of the CloudBridge 4000/5000 software. You can remotely change the IP address, perform different power operations, and obtain health monitoring information of the appliance by connecting to the appliance through the LOM port.
By connecting the LOM port over a dedicated channel that is separate from the data channel, you can make sure that connectivity to the appliance is maintained even if the data network is down.
