S5500WB does not contain a TPM.
These do however.
Intel® Server Board S5520HCT
I am not a Lunux person, and believe that TPM is primarly a windows feature, but the last generation of TPM products, the Linux driver was embedded.
Thank you Doc and Edward.
The problem is that we need a DC server and it seems that none of the server that support a TPM motherboard has a DC power supply.
Thank you also about linux information unfortunately the S5000XVN is no more available.
So..I think I havn't a solution..or do you know if it is possible put on the S5500WB board a third part TPM? I'm not an expert about TPM so I really don't know if is possible add an external component and if the board need to have specific features to support it...
Obviously I don't find anything about in the supported hw list!
When TPM's first were released there were a few available as add in cards, but I don't know of any that are still made that way.
(as a security feature, something removable or swapable between systems kind of defeats the purpose of a hardware encryption lock.)
When you say you need a DC server. are you looking for something like a 48v DC input power? (common in Telco environment)
There are a number of vendors who make this type of power supply in a standard SSI ATX form factor that would fit in most pedestal chassis although I don't know of any that have been tested with HCt or URt servers.
I did a quick web search and found sitees with 48v supplies. http://www.powerstream.com/48-volt.htm
The 48v input would then be converted to the standard SSI computer power supply outputs to run the mother board and peripherals.
The WB system use 12v (& 5v Standby) which allows for some great power effecencies, but no TPM (or TXT) support.
(If you want to buy enought of them, maybe your Intel sales rep can get it added?)
