Internal USB functionality
An internal USB connector is available for use with security key devices and USB drive keys. This solution
provides for use of a permanent USB key installed in the internal connector, avoiding issues of clearance on
the front of the rack and physical access to secure data.
For additional security, external USB functionality can be disabled through RBSU. Disabling external USB
support in RBSU disables the USB connectors on the local I/O cable. Internal USB functionality is unaffected.
Internal SD support
An internal SD connector is available for use with embedded Hypervisors. This solution provides for use of a
permanently installed SD card in the internal connector, decreasing the possibility of tampering or loss.

HP Insight Diagnostics survey functionality

supported by the server, see the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/supportos).
If a significant change occurs between data-gathering intervals, the survey function marks the previous
information and overwrites the survey data files to reflect the latest changes in the configuration.
Survey functionality is installed with every SmartStart-assisted HP Insight Diagnostics installation, or it can be
installed through the HP PSP
