    Out-Of-Band Host Management

    Out-of-band management (also known as Lights out management (LOM)) involves the use of a dedicated management channel for device maintenance. It allows a system administrator to monitor and manage servers and other network equipment by remote control regardless of whether the machine is powered on, or if an operating system is installed or functional.

    LOM is implemented either by a vendor-specific protocol or an industry-(mostly)-standard protocol known as the  Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI).

    IPMI Overview

    The TheIntelligent Platform Management Interface is is a standardized standardized computer system interface  used by used by system administrators  for for out-of-band management  of of computer systems  and and monitoring of their operation. It is a way to manage a computer that may be powered off or otherwise unresponsive by using a network connection to the hardware rather than to an operating system or login shell.

    Many vendors have implemented their own version of IPMI support:



    You must re-start WranglerView the first time you add a LOM command in order for the "Remote Worker Management" sub-menu to appear. Once the sub-menu is visible, adding new commands in the preferences will immediately enable the corresponding Remote Worker Management menu item.
