Dell Lifecycle Controller GUI v2.70.70.70 User's Guide

Introduction

Dell Lifecycle Controller provides advanced embedded systems management to perform systems management tasks such as deploy, configure, update, maintain, and diagnose using a graphical user interface (GUI). It is delivered as part of integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) out-of-band solution and embedded Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) applications in the latest Dell servers. iDRAC works with the UEFI firmware to access and manage every aspect of the hardware, including component and subsystem management that is beyond the traditional Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) capabilities.

NOTE The UEFI environment provides the local console interface and the infrastructure for locally managed system components.

Lifecycle Controller has the following components:

  • GUI:
    • Is an embedded configuration utility that resides on an embedded flash memory card.
    • Is similar to the BIOS utility that is started during the boot sequence, and can function in a pre-operating system environment.
    • Enables server and storage management tasks from an embedded environment throughout the life cycle of the server.
  • Remote Services simplify end-to-end server life cycle management using the one-to-many method. It interfaces for remote deployment integrated with Dell OpenManage Essentials and partner consoles. For more information about remote services features, see Dell Lifecycle Controller Remote Services Quick Start Guide at www.dell.com/support/manuals.
