quick question: how you sending IPMI commands via IPMI tool ? either IB or OOB?
below is the protcol to send via OOB:
#ipmitool -H <BMC ip Address> -I lanplus -U root -P superuser shell
ipmitool > sdr # it will display the SDR values/settigs
ipmitool > raw 06 01 # it will respod with device Id.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for ur reply.
In the documentation of IPMI tool there are some commands like : IPMITOOL 20 18 1 --> to know HSC version number .
* IPMITOOL -if isa_smm C0 18 1 --> to know mBMC number etc..
I dont know whether those commands are IB or OOB.
As you cited "ipmitool -H <BMC ip Address> -I lanplus -U root -P superuser shell" i dont know BMC ip adress . How can i know that i.e., is there any command like ipconfig.
As per my knowledge the commands i used doesnt involve any BMC ip address , so they are inband , am i right..
Operating system im using is windows2003 server.
One more doubt is while working with IPMI , user should have admin previleges ?? or otherwise also work.
Please correct me if my interpretation is not proper.
Looks like you are using windows based IPMITool and sending command via InBand..
I have worked only on linux based IPMITOOL not on windows based.
If you badly want to check the BMC response, use Ipmiutil tool [The source license is BSD]
BTW, one correction: IPMITOOL 20 18 1 -> will fetch you the "Device ID of the BMC not the HSC device ID"
To enable LAN access to BMC, you can use below command sequence [You can also enable via BIOS setup aswell]
Note: below i have used cmd tool[dos based]. which will be distributed along with intel systems.
ENABLE LAN ACCESS TO BMC :
cmdtool 20 18 01
cmdtool 20 30 02 01 04 00 00 (Get lan ip source)
cmdtool 20 30 01 01 04 01 ( Set static ip)
cmdtool 20 30 01 01 03 <IP address in hex>
cmdtool 20 30 01 01 06 <sube net mask>
cmdtool 20 30 01 01 0c <gate way>
