Managing a node remotely by using the Service Processor

You can manage a node remotely by using the Service Processor (SP), a remote management device that is included in all supported platform models. The SP stays operational regardless of the operating state of the node.

In addition to using the SP, you can configure the RSA to enable technical personnel to use the SP for remote support. When problem diagnostics are needed, the RSA automatically uploads core files and transfers diagnostics data such as log files to technical support, reducing your involvement in the troubleshooting process. The RSA is included in the SP firmware but requires configuration.

Data ONTAP-v platforms, such as Data ONTAP Edge, do not have the SP. You use the Data ONTAP-v Administration Tool (dvadmin) for remote management of Data ONTAP-v platforms.
