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)
Thank you both for the link. I'm going to try it now, i give a feedback if it's complete.
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?
