Are AXXRMM4LITE2 and AXXRMM4LITE modules interchangeable and are compatible with S1200SPS server board?

Jump to solution

I'm planning to build an entry-level file server with S1200SPS or S1200SPL board and KVM over network. Some specifications are not clear to me.

(1)

Both AXXRMM4LITE2 and AXXRMM4LITE modules are listed in "Intel Server Board S1200SP Intel Server System R1000SPO Intel Server Chassis P4304XXSHCN/ P4304XXSFCN/ P4000XXSFDR Product Family Configuration Guide", page 31 ( http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/S1200SP_P4000S_R1000SPO_Fam...)

Does that mean, these RMM4 modules are interchangeable?

(2)

"Intel Server Board S1200SP Family Technical Product Specification", page 71, states: "The S1200SPS board does not support Intel RMM4" ( http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/S1200SP_TPS_R1_2_AllSKU.pdf)

Despite this, "Remote Management Module 4 Lite 2 AXXRMM4LITE2" is present in the list of compatible products "Spares and Accessories", document "Intel Server Board S1200SPS" ( http://ark.intel.com/products/88272/Intel-Server-Board-S1200SPS# @compatibility)

and vice versa, "Intel Server Board S1200SPS" is stated to be compatible with "Remote Management Module 4 Lite 2 AXXRMM4LITE2" ( http://ark.intel.com/products/91525/Remote-Management-Module-4-Lite-2-AXXRMM4LITE2# @compatibility)

So is or is not S1200SPS compatible with AXXRMM4LITE2 and AXXRMM4LITE?

If not, then KVM over network can not be used with S1200SPS at all?

Hello Gvp-acc,

Looks like there is a confusion in between what RMM4 and RMM4 Lite (RMM4 Lite 2) is.

What is understood as RMM4 (Remote Management Module 4) is made of 2 separate devices, 1 dedicated server management NIC and 1 RMM4 Lite module (the one that enables the KVM features during the remote management session)

The RMM4 Lite is understood as the small module only with no NIC.

When on the TPS it says it doesn't support RMM4 it refers to both the little module and the NIC. The reason why is not supported is because the S1200SP board comes with a embedded dedicated management NIC port so the discrete management NIC is not necessary.

The RMM4 Lite 2 is an updated version of the RMM4 Lite

On the following document URL you can find more detailed information about the RMM4 and RMM4 Lite. http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/intel_rmm4_ibwc_userguide_r2_72.pdf http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/intel_rmm4_ibwc_userguide_r2_72.pdf

Hope this helps

Hello Jose H.

Thank you for very useful URL.

I see, S1200SPS board I asked about comes without an embedded dedicated management NIC and without 7-pin RMM4 Lite connector.

Two lists of compatible products, mentioned in my first post, seem to me having inaccuracy concerning to S1200SPS and AXXRMM4LITE2 compatibility.

Now a simple question: is "KVM over network" supported by S1200SPS?

Hello Gvp-acc,

 

 

It's a good question. However, KVM over network is only supported when the RMM4 is installed.
