LegacySelect Technology Control
ꢀLegacySelect technology control offers legacy-full, legacy-reduced, or legacy-free solutions based on common platforms, hard-drive images, and help desk
ꢀLegacySelect allows administrators to electronically activate or deactivate connectors and media devices that include serial and USB connectors, a parallel
connector, a floppy drive, and a PS/2 mouse. Connectors and media devices that are deactivated make resources available. You must restart the computer for
the changes to take effect.
Alert Standard Format
ꢀASF is a DMTF management standard that specifies "pre-operating system" or "operating system-absent" alerting techniques. It is designed to generate an
alert on potential security and fault conditions when the operating system is in a sleep state or the computer is powered down. ASF is designed to supersede
previous operating system-absent alerting technologies.
ꢀYour computer supports the following ASF alerts and remote capabilities:
The microprocessor has been unable to execute its first instructions.
The computer has been opened or the chassis intrusion alert has been cleared.
The BIOS is corrupted.
Chassis Intrusion/Chassis Intrusion Cleared
Failure to Boot to BIOS
System Password Failure
The BIOS did not complete loading upon initiation.
The system password is invalid (after 3 failed attempts).
Periodic Heartbeats have been transmitted to verify computer presence.
The computer temperature is out of limits.
Temperature - Too High (critical)
Voltage Too Low
The computer voltage is out of limits.
Too High (critical)
Cooling Device Limits
The computer fan speed/rpm is out of limits.
Ethernet Connectivity Enabled/Ethernet Connectivity Disabled The Ethernet connectivity is enabled or Ethernet connectivity is disabled.
Power Supply A fan or voltage failure exists inside the power supply.
