IBM Advanced Settings Utility program

The IBM Advanced Settings Utility (ASU) program is an alternative to the Setup
utility for modifying UEFI settings. Use the ASU program online or out-of-band to
modify UEFI settings from the command line without the need to restart the server
to access the Setup utility.
You can also use the ASU program to configure the optional remote presence
features or other IMM settings. The remote presence features provide enhanced
systems-management capabilities.
In addition, the ASU program provides limited settings for configuring the IPMI
function in the IMM through the command-line interface.
Use the command-line interface to issue setup commands. You can save any of the
settings as a file and run the file as a script. The ASU program supports scripting
environments through a batch-processing mode.
For more information and to download the ASU program, go to
