Onboard Administrator with VGA connector

Hi all,

I am looking for documentation / purchase information for an Onboard Administrator with a VGA connector for my c7000 enclosure. We currently use iLO to connect to each blade's console but I am interested by the possibility of a second connection method.

I cannot seem to find anything on HP's site (or elsewhere) about an OA with VGA for the c7000, but pages 9,14, and 15 of the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator User Guide here:
http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00705292/c00705292.pdf

list the module. I'm trying to discover if this new device would allow blade console video to pass through or if instead I would get the same CLI I get with a serial (or telnet or SSH) connection to the OAs.

Thanks in advance!

There's a big product release very imminent - probably next week. I've not had time to check. It will be in that.

Is documentation typically available prior to a release?
