How to identify if RMM4 hardware module is installed

user3187136 asked:

I’m running a Debian distribution with ipmiutil on one of my remote servers but I’m not sure if an RMM4(Remote Management Module) hardware is installed on this server. Currently I don’t have visibility on the hardware and it’s interfaces, is it possible to know if an RMM4 Intel module is installed on this server from the Debian OS command line?

My answer:

Use ipmitool info to get information about the installed BMC, which is part of the RMM4. (You may also need to modprobe bmc first.)

If it returns no information, then such a hardware module is not installed.
