Thanks for the note. Just to update firmware and reset the RMM (lost userid/login). I know there are other utilities but based on what I've read IDA seemed to be a nice all-in-one package rather than the multitude of various individual utilities. As I'm also running Ubuntu some of the in-OS utilities aren't available. I'd prefer just to boot once to the USB and take care of it all.
I am still trying to get my hands on one of these boards to try to replicate this issue. Intel discontinued this board back in 2010 and not sure how quick I can get a board to work on this problem.
In the meantime, I would recommend using the bootable BIOS update option instead. The reset of the RMM is not done through the IDA. Could you please confirm if you have the RMM or RMM2?
Oh gee - there certainly isn't a need to try to get your hands on the board, particularly that it's discontinued. I was just hoping there was something in the documentation I had missed. I believe it's the RMM2 I have but haven't inspected the physical RMM card. It came with the S5000PSL server/board.
I appreciate your suggestions, so I gave them a try, as follows:
- plugged the RMM jack into my switch - new IP came up (presumably for the RMM via DHCP) - attempted web access, prompted for user and pass, entered default per the manual "admin" and "password"
- tried a few times (maybe 10 or so) - after a while, stopped getting any prompt and just got "Error 400" on the page. I suspect there's some sort of lockout
- tried booting to a DOS USB key and tried syscfg -rfs then syscfg -rbms, hoping that would restore everything to factory default - still get the same "Error 400" when attempting to access via a browser
- tried messing about with the users and passwords - create user 2 channel 1 admin password, then enabled admin and lan channel 1 - could not enable sol or kvm - says "This operation is not supported"
- tried kiratool from DOS - pretty well any command results in an error message ending "KCS I/O error" - including e.g. kiratool ip show
- tried running psesetup from a windows machine on the same LAN - says no device found
Any suggestions you could offer would be most appreciated.
Thanks very much. I did try a number of commands in kiratool, including the one above, all of which returned the same KCS I/O Error message. The sysconfig commands returned a message along the lines of "successfully completed" or something like that. In any event, I will try kiratool again.
Is there a way to confirm that the board is in fact an RMM2 board? I had just assumed it was given the responses to the syscfg commands...
