SC = small Configuration

Some has an BMC with IPMI, think the 1600 SC and 1800 SC but the
others....... - no hot plug disks, no redundant PSU's, no management

Diag Led's and beep codes are all in the 440SC.

Software is available: Sas raid Storage manager

Hoping someone can correct me, but I think you're SOL. OMSA does not
support most of the SC series - they're cheap, budget hardware(!)

I support an SC440 and have never got lm_sensors or IPMI to work (using
OpenSUSE 10.2 if it matters - due to be upgraded to 11.1 sometime soon).
The fans, temperatures and case intrusion data do show up in the BIOS.
