BMC only for Support - FAS2020


hi guys

I am working on this FAS2020 using a console cable attached to my computer. Cool I run commands and everything.

Now I read that BMC interface will let me configure autosupport and send email in case my FAS2020 fails....but I was thinking I had the option to manage my FAS2020 like I did with the console cable running commands and so on...but I dont see this, I am accessing my BMC with ssh and no commands available like using console cable.

so my question is BMC capable of running commands like direct attached console cable or is it just for autosupport and low level commands
