Pinned topic X3250M4 IMM2 Basic

‏2012-08-29T16:00:30Z |
Can x3250 M4 come with IMM2 basic license perform power control (power on/off server)? I need to use IMM2 to act as fence device for redhat cluster?

Do I need to upgrade IMM2 from basic to standard to act as fence device? Can I change the password of default user USERID for X3250 M4 with basic IMM2 license ?
