Do we need "Enhanced Host Management"

We have several “ConnectX-5 MT27800” 100GB cards. We need to buy a spare one. Sales told us, that these cards are “end of sale”. They gives us this to choose from “ConnectX-5 EN Cards”. There we have two 100GB options: MCX516A-CCAT and MCX516A-CCHT (with Enhanced Host Management). I am not sure what is “Enhanced Host Management” in adapters and do we need it ?

Thank you

Hello Sergey,

Thank you for posting your inquiry on the NVIDIA Networking Community.

Enhanced host management gives you the opportunity to control the adapter through a BMC interface. In normal circumstances, it is not needed and the MCX516A-CCAT will be more than sufficient.

Thank you and regards,
