    Intel rmm3 problem

    pronini

      Hi.

       

      I have Intel rmm3 installed on one of my servers

       

      Smash CLP Version :SMASH 1.0.0/CLP 1.09

       

      Somehow web is not working (page loading), but i do have ssh access. Is it possible to reboot server from console?

       

      Thank you.

          You can perform a remote reset under the menu Remote Control ->  Server Power Control, there will be options to choose depending on what you want to do when performing a cold/hard reset.

            You should be able to cd to system1 and type command reset to reset server. I have the same issue, but I can not bring my server down. I am looking forward to reset BMC.

              Hello,

              cuz search requests like "Reset BMC via SMASH-CLP Console" led to this page, I think we need a solution here, so if anyone face with such a problem - he could deal with it. I hope so.

               

              Case:

              problem with BMC web-panel, neither HTTP nor HTTPS is loading properly.

               

              1st solution (if SSH still works):


              login to Smash CLP via ssh, and run next few commands:

              cd /system1/sp1/enetport1/lanendpt1/ipendpt1
              set committed=0
              set committed=1
              
              
              
              
              
              
              
              


              This will reload BMC, so perhaps you'll gain access.


              2nd solution (if you have only access to the system running on the server):

              first, install IPMI management utilities - ipmiutil. Then run the command below:

               

              ipmitool bmc reset cold
              
              
              
              
              
              
              
              

               

              This will restart BMC, without affecting the server itself.

               

              If you have remote access, but first solution for some reason didn't help you - you can use ipmitool with remote host as showed in next command (don't forget to install ipmiutil on client host):

               

              ipmitool -H hostname -U username -P password -v bmc reset cold
              

               

              You must change the hostname, username and pasword in command to your own.

                Thanks. First solution no, but second solution works for me.

                  The third is usually the recommended since you can send it remotely over the network as well.
