  • Publication number: 20220335131
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for remotely supporting managed hardware components of an IHS (Information Handling System). Prior to booting an operating system of the IHS, the managed hardware components are enumerated as supporting remote management and a network stack is created in a secured IHS memory, where the network stack is for transfer of remote device management communications directed at the managed hardware components. Still prior to booting the operating system, the IHS chipset is configured to route device management messages received from remote management tools to the network stack. After booting the operating system, a secure remote management session is established between a remote management tool and an IHS device management agent. During operation of the device management agent in the booted operating system, device management messages are retrieved from the network stack and decoded device management messages are delivered to a managed hardware component.
