Yes, I've done that all. I don't use RMM4, thus I only configured the first IP group (the RMM4 group is greyed out). Addresses for my network are 192.168.1.205 / 255.255.255.0 and 192.168.1.1 for GW. All users are enabled and configured with a password.
The configuration is verified using ipmitool in Ubuntu. Ipmitool correctly lists all five users, and password test also passes.
What remote tool should I use?
Have you tried direct connection to server from notebook via cross-cable?
Can you ping the IP address for the BMC? If so can you please tell us the commands you are trying to execute?
no, I cannot even ping the IP address, "Destination Host Unreachable". What I am also surprised is that LEDs on LAN connector go off when I turn the platform off, which looks like BMC doesn't control them at all.
One thing I am not sure about - do I need RMM4 or RMM4 Lite module to get the BMC LAN working? I understand I need RMM4 to get access to EWS / IBMC, but do I need RMM4 or RMM4 lite to e.g. use ipmitool to remotely manage the platform? The documentation isn't quite clear about it (or I am reading it wrong ).
Thanks a lot,
I don't have any cross cables, but I tried connecting via ethernet switch with no other devices on the network, and static IP configuration. The result is sadly the same.
Just to be sure: IP for BMC is different from host OS IPs?
Install the Intel® System Configuration Utility (syscfg) to server host OS and issue following commands with admin rights:
wait 1 minute
Then reboot and setup BMC LAN settings again.
This finally helped, thanks!
And yes, the IP addresses of BMC and OS were different.
Now I am facing the same problem on Aztec City. I'll check if there are any BMC firmware updates, as the trick you suggested doesn't work here.
