Before you begin

There are some specific hardware and software requirements for using the CMM command-line interface.


You do not need any special hardware to use the CMM command-line interface.

You can use the console command to control a compute node through SOL (see console command for information).


Make sure that you are using the latest versions of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) code, system-management processor firmware, diagnostic firmware updates, and device drivers for your compute node, CMM, and other Lenovo Flex System components. Go to Lenovo Datacenter Support site for the latest information about upgrading the device drivers, firmware, and UEFI code for Lenovo Flex System components. The latest instructions are in the documentation that comes with the updates.
