Did you know that servers nowadays come with an embedded controller providing a web interface to view the console, control power and perform firmware upgrades?
But the HP iLO is special: it wants a license to unlock the remote console after POST 🖕😀🖕

IBM on the other side ships hardware including CPUs, which you have to unlock to use them.
