  • The scheduler feature: Used to start events such as resume or program initiation when the system is off.
  • The Wake on LAN® feature: Allows a remote network administrator or server to communicate with the system even when it is powered off.

Note: Some software may differ from its retail version, if any, and may not include user manuals or all program function. Warranty service and support for non-IBM products are provided directly to you by third parties, not IBM. IBM makes no representation or warranties regarding non-IBM products. For non-IBM software, applicable third-party software licenses may apply.

IBM manageability tools

Desktop Management Interface (DMI) Service Provider: This tool can help administrators manage and control hardware and software products on desktop computers and servers. Each DMI-compliant component registers its configuration information in a management information format file that follows an industry-standard format. The IntelliStation is DMI specification 2.0-compliant. Support documentation is built into the help system.

  • DMI BIOS Instrumentation:

    Retrieves information from the system BIOS, such as memory configuration, BIOS version and date, and microprocessor and cache information.

  • PC System Monitor Instrumentation:

    Monitors system-board temperatures, system voltages, and fan speed, and detects removal of the computer cover. Data is reported to the DMI service layer. Systems management software, such as IBM Director Agent, can then be used to send an alert to the user or the system administrator if a problem occurs.

IBM Director Agent (Windows XP Professional (32-bit) only)

IBM Director Agent, a client management application for networked computers, centralizes control of your computer systems to potentially lower the total cost of ownership. View, monitor, and control your networked computers with IBM Director Agent.

With IBM Director Agent, you can:

  • Learn detailed inventory information about your computers, including the operating system, memory, network cards, and hardware
  • Track your computers proactively with features such as power management, event log, and system monitoring
  • Upwardly integrate with Tivoli® Enterprise, Tivoli NetView®, Computer Associates Unicenter, HP OpenView, Microsoft SMS, BMC Patrol, and NetIQ AppManager

IBM Director Agent uses some of the latest systems management standards, including Common Information Model, Web-Based Enterprise Management, and XML, making it compatible with most of the enterprise management software you already have.

IBM Director Agent can also be used with the complete IBM Director product for more comprehensive workgroup management:

  • Managing groups of systems
  • Performing tasks on those groups
  • Responding to alerts with automated action plans

The IntelliStation workstation, running Windows 32-bit, supports IBM Director. The software versions, features, and functions of IBM Director Agent may change as new releases become available or may be discontinued at any time. For a list of systems supported, visit

Remote Deployment Manager™ (RDM)(Windows XP Professional (32-bit) only)

These systems can use RDM, which enables the configuration and deployment of the systems. This highly flexible and powerful tool enables you to deploy system images that include the operating system and configuration details from an IBM Director console on the network.

With RDM, you can:

  • Load firmware or specific operating systems
  • Store installation images on the RDM server
  • Restore disk images locally with a keystroke
  • Drag and drop to deploy images

Technology enablers

IBM technology enablers are the supporting hardware designed into IBM products to enable comprehensive systems management.

  • Pre-boot eXecution Environment (PXE) is firmware located on the network interface card that allows a networked PC to find a configuration server on the network prior to loading any operating system.
  • S.M.A.R.T. HDDs offer early warning of some failures so that critical data can be protected. S.M.A.R.T. HDDs are the industry-standard reliability indicator for SAS and SATA HDDs.
  • Wake on LAN, a product of the IBM and Intel® Advanced Manageability Alliance, enables administrators to remotely power on a networked client system from a powered-off state.

Alert Standard Format (ASF): ASF enhances your ability to monitor PCs locally or remotely. ASF notifies you immediately of some system events, such as chassis intrusion, client disconnect from the network, or system startup errors, regardless of the power state of the system. ASF helps provide both systems management and asset protection. Systems management notifies you of configuration changes during power-on self-test (POST), system errors during POST, and operating system hangs or errors. Asset protection tracks the system presence via monitoring of an LAN connection and tracking intrusion, regardless of whether the system is fully powered on or the system is off but still plugged into the outlet. ASF also notifies you when certain environmental conditions, such as the temperature, are abnormal.

Security, auditability, and control

Improved asset protection: The IntelliStation M Pro systems have two key focus areas: Better system security and better data protection. The IntelliStation M Pro systems are equipped with a range of features that help address both of these focus areas.

System security includes theft deterrence and detection of system tampering. The IntelliStation M Pro systems have the following security attributes:

  • ASF
  • Asset control and monitoring:

IBM Director Agent and the chassis intrusion switch help notify network administrators when an IntelliStation M Pro system is opened without authorization. The administrator can then take appropriate action to prevent system tampering or theft.

The IntelliStation M Pro systems have the following data protection attributes:

  • S.M.A.R.T. analysis:

    All models have S.M.A.R.T. HDDs to warn users and network administrators when certain HDD failures may be imminent by measuring parameters such as rotation speed and head wear. In the case of predictable failures, you can alleviate costly data loss by backing up data and replacing the HDD.

  • Environmental control and monitoring:

    The manageability chip constantly monitors system voltage and processor temperature and alerts the network administrator when some potential system failures may occur. You can then perform a preventative system backup.

  • Virus protection:

    Each IntelliStation M Pro system preloaded with Windows XP Professional (32-bit) is shipped with Norton AntiVirus for IBM (OEM Version) software.

The IntelliStation M Pro models support the following security features:

  • Cover tamper detect switch
  • U-bolt anchoring feature (U-bolt is optional; supports optional padlock)
  • Secure fixed DASD
  • Power-on password
  • Setup utility password (administrator password)
  • Keyboard/mouse password
  • Boot sequence control
  • Boot without keyboard or mouse
  • Diskette boot inhibit
  • Disable mouse
  • Diskette I/O control
  • HDD I/O control
  • Serial port I/O control
  • Parallel port I/O control
  • Secure access openings (vents, louvers)
  • Vital product data stored in on-board flash ROM

To assist in security, systems management, and asset management, the following system identifiers (vital product data) are provided:

  • Machine type and model
  • System serial number
  • Manufacturing identifier
