    S3200sh ipmi configuration

    ofsen

      Has anyone configured ipmi lan interface on s3200sh. I was using http://osdir.com/ml/hardware.ipmitool.devel/2006-07/msg00019.html to configure s5000pal but this procedure doesn't apply to S3200sh.

       

      Regards.

          Hello,

           

          I think this can be done using:

            You can boot the IDA CD to configure BMC LAN channel, or you can also use the Save and Restore System Configuration utility (syscfg). Visit http://downloadcenter.intel.com and search "s3200sh syscfg"

              Thanks for the update I will both try syscfg EFI version and IDA.

               

              Thanks al lot.

                I have used IDA 2.5.1 and configured my system but i still can't reach (ping or sth else. I ping it from the same lan and can't see MAC address of my BMC)

                 

                1) I have plugged my network cable to first ethernet port (the one with the 2 usb connection)

                 

                2) configured BMC with IDA 2.5.1. Here is my configuration ( have used ipmitool command )

                  you can use icmd tool to enable the LAN access to BMC.

                  Below is the steps.

                   

                  ENABLE LAN ACCESS TO BMC :

                  icmd 00 20 18 01

                  icmd 00 20 30 02 01 04 00 00 (Get lan ip source)

                  icmd 00 20 30 01 01 04 01 ( Set static ip)

                  icmd 00 20 30 01 01 03 <IP address in hex>

                  icmd 00 20 30 01 01 06 <sube net mask>

                  icmd 00 20 30 01 01 0c <gate way>

                  // Set user priviledge //

                  icmd 00 20 18 47 02 01  ( to enable the user)
                  icmd 00 20 18 47 02 02 73 75 70 65 72 75 73 65 72 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ( set pwd "superuser" to root user)

                   

                  ==================

                  Using Ipmitool:

                   

                  // to assign the IP to BMC //
                  ipmiutil cmd 00 20  30 1 1 3 <ip in hex>

                  //to setup the subnet mask//
                  ipmiutil cmd 00 20  30 1 1 6 <subnet mask>

                  //to setup the gate way//
                  ipmiutil cmd 00 20  30 1 1 c <gateway>

                    I have also used your commands but still no luck. One intel support center told me not to use "0" (zeros) on the IP address changed my ip address to sth else also changed the ip address of the first nic but still i cant ping or see the MAC address of IPMI (I have also used cross cable for that). Does anyone in this list actuall configured and used IPMI (BMC) LAN configuration on S3200sH? I have also used cross cable to verify if something is wrong with the network.  I can ping first NIC's IP address but not BMC

                      First make sure you have the latest BIOS/BMC firmware applied. Then use the syscfg utility to configure BMC lan channel:


                      //To assign a static IP address:

                      syscfg /le 1 static 192.168.1.121 255.255.255.0

                       

                      //To enable BMC LAN channel 1:

                      syscfg /c 1 7 Always


                      //To set the password for BMC user 1 (Anonymous):

                      syscfg /u 1 “” “password”

                       


                      //To enable BMC user 1 on LAN channel 1:

                      syscfg /ue 1 enable 1

                       

                      I did try it on my S3200SH and it worked well.

                        Hi,

                        It seems that only way to enable LAN is to use syscfg not IDA (intel deployment assistant 2.5.1 CD) or ipmitool. Even I see and verify configuration with IDA or ipmitool  BMC IP  is not enabled.
                        So I have solved our problem with syscfg EFI utility.

                        PS: To connect ipmi using ipmitool you can use: ipmitool -A MD5  -U USERID -P PASS  -H 10.0.0.24 power status for S3200sh but for example to connect S5000PAL you have to use
                        ipmitool -A MD5 -o intelplus -I lanplus  -U USERID -P PASS -H 10.0.0.24 power status  (additional  -o intelplus -I lanplus )


                        Hope this helps to everyone in future.

                          Hi Edward,

                           

                          I know this thread is quite old and I'm not even sure you are still around.

                           

                          But I encountered the same problem as here. IPMI on S3200SH not working if configured with ipmitool. I already updated to the latest firmware and did the steps you mentioned above yet still no go.

                          Any other way to have it configured? The configuration is saved and ipmilan -c /etc/ipmi_lan.conf on CentOS works but I don't get BMC access when it's off. Obviously something is wrong. I am using this in a prototype cluster configuration with Opennode.

                            Might be a redundant post as I registered to make sure my post can be counted. Not sure though if you are still active as well as the other guy but I hope someone will be able to help.

                             

                            I'm having the same issues as outlined above. I already upgraded to latest available BIOS and BMC firmware for my board. Any ideas on how to fix this will be of great help.

                                  I try to configure lan access to BMC. I think my problem with zeros on MAC address. How to solve this problem?  Command "ipmitool lan set 1 macaddr" don't change mac.
