Management controllers (known as out of band management controllers) are hardware devices installed by some server manufacturers and allow the remote management and control of a server even when the machine is physically powered off.

To obtain this information the XIA Configuration Client must have access to the server using SNMP and the manufacturer and model of the server must be supported.

For more information about SNMP please see the SNMP Settings section.


Management controllers within Hewlett-Packard servers are known as iLO (Integrated Lights Out).

To document iLO devices the HP management agents must be installed on the server that support cpq-sm2.mib.  Viewing the HP Systems Management Homepage on the remote server allows you to confirm that the information will be available to the XIA Configuration Client.
