I recently attempted to configure the LOM on 3 Xserve systems.
On 2 I used the Server Monitor and was able to get things to work. On the third I decided to use the ipmitool to set the addresses but I can't seem to get it to work. Unfortunately, after this attempt, the Server Monitor also does not seem to get things working anymore.
Here are the ipmitool commands that I used:
ipmitool lan set 1 ipaddr <ipaddress> ipmitool lan set 1 netmask <netmask> ipmitool lan set 1 defgw ipaddr <gateway> ipmitool lan set 1 access on
Check the settings using ipmitool lan print 1
Get the admin userid. ipmitool user list 1
Set the password ipmitool user set password <userid> '<password>' ipmitool user enable <userid>
When I try to connect to the LOM from another system the remote controller does not respond
ipmitool -v -v -v -H strmac18-c -a -U admin chassis power status Password: ... No response from remote controller Get Auth Capabilities command failed
Can someone please let me know if I am missing something in the configuration?
