With Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI), administrators can perform maintenance on Barracuda CloudGen WAN appliances and view Event Log messages. Since IPMI works independently of the firmware, it is accessible even when the appliance is not available via Web UI or SSH. Communication between the IPMI module and the user can be established either via the network (connected to the IPMI port) or through a serial connection. Commands, settings, and Event Logs can easily be set and administered via a platform-independent web interface. IPMI is supported on the Barracuda CloudGen WAN version T900.
The following functions and information are available via IPMI:
- Shutdown (forced or controlled)
- Power on
- Information on box and CPU fan
- Information on BIOS
