* IP : 10.5.25.0/24 for rennes
The config may not work if the Service Manager has not been reseted before.
configure command host
On each host of the lan that needs to access the IPMI add the following line to /etc/network/interfaces
post-up ip addr add 10.5.25.112/24 dev xen-br0
Assuming 10.5.25.112 is an IP that is not already used.
If the lan parameters aren't configured, you can configure them from host.
apt-get install ipmitool openipmi modprobe ipmi_si modprobe ipmi_devintf #you need to reset the ip config ipmitool lan set 1 ipsrc none ipmitool lan set 1 ipsrc dhcp #Here your ip should be set to 0.0.0.0 ipmitool lan print ipmitool lan set 1 ipsrc static ipmitool lan set 1 ipaddr 10.5.25.13 ipmitool lan set 1 defgw ipaddr 10.5.25.1 ipmitool lan set 1 netmask 255.255.255.0
From the gateway (rennes.tld) :
enable initial access
ssh -l setup 10.5.25.X
And follow steps
- user : admin
- password : ror8OmEf
Once the user has been created, the setup user is locked
ssh -l admin 10.5.25.X ipmi enable channel lan
It will ask for the admin's password first, then for the LAN password (will ask twice), leave it empty.
To check it's ok, try to query ipmi using the lan interface :
ipmitool -H 10.5.25.X -I lan -P "" -l admin lan print
configure Serial over lan
- on the host :
- edit /etc/inittab
- check you have :
T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyS0 9600 vt102
- use "init q" to reload inittab without reboot.
- Then, using ipmi :
ssh -l admin 10.5.25.X platform set console -s sp -e -S 9600
To use it :
ssh -l admin 10.5.25.X platform console
It will prompt you for admin password, then display something like :
[no, email@example.com is attached]
To log on the serial console, press ctrl+E,c,a,enter, which should show you the console login prompt :
[Enter `^Ec?' for help] ^Eca [ok] Debian GNU/Linux squeeze/sid hosting9.rennes.tld ttyS0 hosting9.rennes.tld login:
If it does not work try ctrl-E,c,f,enter (to force attach read/write).

To be able to have the console during the boot, you need to add :
At the end of the "kopt" line of menu.lst, then update-grub.
