What is the Intel® Remote Management Module (Intel® RMM)?
The Intel® Remote Management Module (Intel® RMM) is a small form factor mezzanine card. This card enables remote KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) and media redirection, on your server system, from the built-in Web Console. You can configure the Intel® Remote Management Module 4 (Intel® RMM4) using any of the following methods:
- BIOS setup
- Intel® Deployment Assistant
- sysconfig (SYSCFG)
- IPMI commands
What configuration method should I use?
The most common method is to configure one LAN channel as a static address, and enable one user, through the BIOS setup.
- During POST, press F2 to go to BIOS setup.
- Go to the Server Management tab and scroll down to BMC LAN Configuration.
- Scroll down to Intel® RMM4 LAN configuration > IP source and click Static.
- Configure the IP address, Subnet mask, and Gateway IP.
- Scroll down to User ID. Select the user that you want to configure: User3, User4, or User5. Don't use User1 (anonymous) or User2 (root).
- Scroll down to User status. Select Enabled.
- Scroll down to User name. Change the name if preferred.
- Scroll down to User password. Change the password. You're required to enter the password twice.
- Press F10 and click save and exit. Your server will reboot with the new LAN settings.

Intel® Server's Integrated Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) can be accessed by standard, off-the-shelf terminal, open-sourced, or terminal emulator utilities. One example is the IPMIUtility that allows access to sensor status information and power control. Customers own the risk of using open-source utilities. Intel has no control on these utilities and cannot guarantee any fix with these utilities.
