Hm, ILOM is default gear on every sun x86 Server. Also ILOM can do a
thousands more things, it sends you an email if a DIMM or whatever
fails, it allows you access to RKVM and serial console (webui and ssh)
and allows you to remote mount boot media. I use two x4150 here with
opensolaris xvm, I really seldom need to enter the server room, without
any additional requirements.
