What you can display in BMC advanced mode

The BMC advanced commands display more information than is available in administrative mode, including active BMC network services, storage system events logged by the BMC, and BMC battery information.

The following table provides a quick reference of the command syntax for the additional BMC commands that you can use in advanced mode.
