Maestro and LOM

Question: What is the added value of LOM cards in Quantum appliances when used with Orchestrator ?

It's purpose remains as for normal appliances but doesn't directly benefit the Orchestrator itself.

For this and other reasons having out-of-band console server connectivity is recommended for Maestro deployments.

So in which situations would Maestro deployments benefit from LOM on the used appliances ?

Perhaps some emergency situations where remote console access is unavailable (i.e. no console server) 

So hypothetically this might be things like:

* SGM boot issues 
* SGM rebuild scenarios
* SGM monitoring

Again, console access is usually recommended for Maestro/Scalable Platform.

Last month one of our  customer had a problem with freezing appliances in a Maestro setup.

A reboot was only possible with power off via LOM Port and the only access to the appliance was too the LOM port.

This is a very useful thing for a LOM Port on the appliance.

This makes it perfectly clear why a LOM Port on the appliance makes sense - thank you !
