    1. Several authority levels are available for accessing the service processor menus by using the ASMI.

      The following levels of access are supported:

      General user
      Users with general authority can view settings in the ASMI menus. The login ID is general and the default password is general.

      Administrator
      Users with administrator authority can write to persistent storage, and view and change settings that affect the server's behavior. The login ID is admin and the default password is admin.

      Authorized service provider
      This login gives the authorized service provider access to all functions that could be used to gather additional debug information from a failing system. There are three authorized service provider login IDs: celogin, celogin1, and celogin2.

    1. Hi siva,

      you need a cable, a notebook and a web browser. After you are connected to the service processor, with the IP of the processor written in the browser, you should be able to do some management of the system.
