I readed that pdf before and i saw that chapter to. But I have a great ? with the syscfg tool?
I don't know it , and don't now how you can add those commands.
I read you can start it in dos mode but that all, i can be wrong but it's new for me.
But otherwise beside de syscf commands everything is done (IPMI settings)
Oké i tested it and seems it did not work for me.
I followed the steps from the pdf you added here in the topic:
> syscfg /u 3 admin password # configure user 3’s user name and password
> syscfg /ue 3 enable 3 # enable user 3 on LAN channel 3
> syscfg /up 3 3 admin # assign user 3 with admin privilege on LAN channel 3
> syscfg /c 3 7 always # configure LAN channel 3 access mode to “Always”
I give some details of the BCM that i configured.
C:\syscfg\SysCfgRelease>syscfg /d channel 3

So it seems oké not? or did i missed something?
After this i tested a few things.
If i use ipmiutil local, i wil get the sensor list, what is normal i think
If i remote test ipmitool i still got the same errors as in the first post also with the ipmiping i get a time out, but with normal ping i get replies.
Strange things going on here. I don't got an explanation for it.
So i try a lot, but still no succes.
Thank you for the replies anyway.
I'm back with some problems.
Before the weekend everything was working fine, even my script worked and i could monitor the sensors.
After the weekend my monitoring failed, i looked to my script but nothing is wrong so i've been looking to the system health in the RMM 2 webinterface.
And there it was: no sensors found.
So i went looking at the IPMI device settings and i get this error:
Error: Failed to query IPMI Channel 3 Forwarding Parameters.
So there is something wrong with the BMC module.
I did some syscfg /d command but didn't get information. First i get this error:
an error occurred while getting SOL configurations from the system
then i get an error that he doesn't know /u or /d channel 3 and so on.
After this i downloaded the kiratool and did a test ( test ipmb all)
>ipmb bmc: failed
Another test: ipmiutil cmd 00 20 18 01
>icmd Unspecified error
So my conclusion is that the BMC doesn't react anymore, i don't know why or how.
I can see that you can reset it with kiratool. I didn't do this now because i don't know if it remember all my setting like IP and login password and username and other settings.
But i don't know any other solutions to get back my ipmi information. No reaction on reset from the webinterface, no reaction on the syscfg tool.
Any one has this problem before?
