This version is also called Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition II Board (RILOE II)
User guide for HP Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition II Board

The ROM-based setup utility F8 (RBSU F8) allows you to configure RILOE II during server boot-up. RBSU F8 is useful for configuring servers that do not use DNS/DHCP. RBSU F8 is available every time the server is booted. RBSU F8 cannot run remotely.
