OK guys, so far I have answerred one question myself, I was able to logon to the IPMI-shell with an Ubuntu machine on my network by installing "ipmitool" and opening a session by using this command:
ipmitool -H *IPADDRESS OF YOUR IPMI* -U root shell
After you open this session, you can do a cold reset:
mc reset cold
Info thanks to: http://treck.livejournal.com/76702.html
But I would like to get a solution longterm for this issue...
I can SSH from my PC to the IP address that the RMM Website is on and login, but the command "
mc "MC reset cold" gives an error. I am at the ">> SMASH-CLP Console v1.09 <<"
I turned the power off for the server and turned it back on, but still get the video socket error.
If I have my data center actually pull the plug and re-plug, is that likely to reset the RMM?
pulling the power for 20 seconds, will reset the RMM.
your code stack is pretty old.
- Record your BMC configuration
- Update to newer BMC (and the rest of the code stack)
- Restore the BMC defaults (fwpiaupd /setdef)
- Edit the BMC settings back to your configuration
After doing these steps, I have not heard of the issue returning.
