iLOAdvanced v's Riloe11

Is there any difference/advantage/disadvantage between a server with built in ILO with Advanced enabled and the separate card approach of the Riloe11?

Re: iLOAdvanced v's Riloe11

The main differences are:

1. The A/C Power for the RILOE II could be supplied via a different power source or circuit for remote viewing if the server's power source was not available,

2. RILOE II keeps a virtual copy of SURVEY for remote viewing. SURVEY is not and won't be available using the iLO unless the server is functioning and can get to the OS for review using the Remote Console Features of the Adv License Pack, and

3. Finally, if something were to go wrong with the RILOE II, then this just requires replacing the pci board and not the system board (ILO), but you will save a pci slot by using the ILO.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
