IPMI & On-board Ethernet?

Mar 21, 2008

Say a server has 2 gig-e ports on board, and the OS

is using both. Can I still use IPMI feature? Or do I have

to get an additional ethernet card?

What are the benefits of IPMI with KVM Over LAN? Is it more of a benefit for the datacenter? Or does it have benefits for someone that has collocated there server a far distance away?

This may appear to be a stupid question, but I just wonder if the Supermicro IPMI cards work only with Supermicro hardware (or if it works also with other hardware, but without warrantly)?

In case does it exist some hardware independant, or something similar?

Vbulletin Msg Board

Jan 26, 2007

1) From time to time my vbulleting message board loads slow, and at that time the server isn't even at a high load this happen at loads 0.9 nothing much really but always below 4.

2) Not only does it load slow but it often return the server cannot be found error, this minute it works fine and the next minute it doesn't, all i can see from the error log for my domain is

3) php warning: Zend Optimizer for PHP 4.3.x cannot be found (expected at '/usr/local/Zend/lib/Optimizer-2.1.0/php-4.3.x/Zendoptimizer.so') - try reinstalling the zend optimizer in Unknown on line 0, referer [url]

4) Does vbulletin relies on zend at all to be fully functional?

5) will zend actualy help at all?

Yes there are other sites on the box and they seem to work fine.

Intel VPro/AMT? IPMI?

Mar 1, 2008

I'm in the market for a new server for colocation, and to save myself some of the headaches I've had with my current one, I'd like it to have a good remote management system, specifically one that operates independently of the operating system, or ideally one that can be accessed even if the machine is powered off. What exactly should I be looking for? I've read a lot about IPMI and Intel vPro and AMT, and I'm not quite clear on how they all fit together.

At the very least, I need something that will let me power-cycle the machine and remotely access its serial console. All the hardware environment monitoring things in IPMI sound useful, but not essential for my purposes. Anyway, it sounds like vPro is part of many (or all?) current Core 2 processors, or am I mistaken? I'm looking mainly at machines with Core 2 Duo or Quad, so can I expect they'd have that built-in, or would I need to specifically request it or look for some particular chipset or CPU?

256, 384, Or 512MB RAM For A Message Board?

Oct 29, 2008

For running PHPBB3 or vBulletin, are there certain *ballpark* figures used to help decide between 256, 384, or 512MB of dedicated RAM on a VPS?

E.g. If you have XX number of concurrent users, you will probably need this amount of RAM?

Setting Up Supermicro IPMI.

Feb 17, 2007

I am having alot of difficulty trying to setup supermicro IPMI.

I am using motherboard PDSMI+.

Ok, so this is what I did:

1. I flash the IPMI card with the cd-rom that is included. I set the correct IP and MAC address.

2. I then install OpenIPMI-tools

I was able to successfully issue the command locally:
ipmitool sensor

but, when I try to connect remotely I always get a connection failed. I tried everything I know, which is nothing and got no progress.

I set the ipaddres and gateway by using this commands:
ipmitool -I open lan set 1 ipaddr [IPADDR]
ipmitool -I open lan set 1 defgw ipaddr [GW IPADDR]
ipmitool -I open lan set 1 netmask [NETMASK]
ipmitool -I open lan set 1 access on

SuperMicro IPMI IP Space Assignment

Dec 13, 2008

I have a bunch of servers with IPMI cards with KVMoIP capability and I know how to configure IPs and everything using IPMICFG.EXE while the system boots.

Now, I am facing a dilemma as to how to create the IP space.

When I create a user I specify the user has no access to change the network (IP) info.

But say the user has windows server, are they able to change the IP from there using IPMICFG.EXE?

This will determine how I create my VLANs.

If the client with USER access is able to change the IP settings using IPMICFG.exe then I have to create a /30 VLAN for each KVMoIP. I dont want to do this cause 3 IPs are wasted.

If the user will not be able to execute IPMICFG.EXE then I can just create one big VLAN and assign one IP per IPMI card with the gateway being the same for the entire big VLAN.

SC512 Cooling With A Desktop Board

Nov 5, 2007

I'm specing out a box for small dedicated servers and am looking at the SC512 with a desktop board (Intel D964GZISSL since I don't have to cut anything). Should I be using active cooling since it's a desktop board, or will a large passive heatsink be sufficient? I'll be using Celeron Ds, probably a 356. It's power usage is quiet low.

It looks like the heatsink on the motherboard might restrict airflow a bit.

Tyan B5161 + M3291 IPMI

Mar 10, 2007

I have here 3 servers of Tyan with M3291 IPMI boards installed. I hooked it up as per instructions of Tyan, but am unable to get it to work.

I have tried contacting Tyan about this, but after a few messages they stopped responding to my questions. I think they are convinced it is working with me....

The setup is;
- Ubuntu 6.1 x86_64
- System BIOS is the original version
- IPMI card is flashed with the correct firmware
- The network port which is shared with the IPMI card has a different IP address then the IPMI card.

Settings IPMI card:
box:~# ./uh8l -d
BMC Utility on Linux For M3291 version 0.9.1
Copyright 2003-2006 TYAN Computer Corp.
IPMI Ver: 2.0 Firmware Rev: 0.11 Vendor ID: 6653 Pdt ID: 5161
DHCP Disable
BMC IP Address:
MAC Address: 00:E0:81:42:4C:51
Net Mask:
Gate Way:
Broadcast ARP: Enable

This server has on the IPMI shared port the address ...
When I try to ping the IPMI board from the server itself or from a different server I get an incomplete address in the ARP table;
? ( at <incomplete> on eth2

(Also after pinging it for 1 minute...)

If I use the IPMI utilities I am unable to contact the board and do anything with the server....
I tried several settings of the IPMI board, including DHCP / ARP on and off...

Does anyone have this combination working, and how did you do this?

Metro Ethernet Vs. DS3

Jul 22, 2008

Say I have my own office to start building out my own "mini" data center.

If I wanted a lot of bandwidth for the most reasonable cost, how do one go about buying bandwidth from various providers? What is Metro-Ethernet vs. say a DS3? I know there is Fractional DS3 (6 to 45mb/s) and then Ethernet services up to GigE. I'd rather not mess with BGP right now either.

If I am looking at 15-20mb/Sec of bandwidth, what would be a good route to go? My budget is about $1500/month for bandwidth and IP Addresses (I need 2 Full Class-C IP Spaces). I also want to be able to turn up speed as needed without a lot of hassle.

Is this a reasonable budget? And where would be a good place to start? Just call up like Level 3 or am I too small potatoes to even deal with?

Ethernet Connections

Jan 18, 2007

I now have to move on to the question of Ethernet ports in relations to rack mount servers. I have just about ever question answered now. Now my question is about the connection to the web my server will use. Is it better to have a single or a dual Ethernet post?

I see a lot of duals. Here are some of the samples I have read when building my server.
2 x Intel® 82546GB Gigabit Ethernet Ports
Dual Onboard Gigabit Ethernet LAN Ports
Dual Intel® 82541GI Single-port Gigabit Ethernet Controller
Broadcom dual Gb NICs
Intel dual Gb NICs
Broadcom BCM5754, 10/100/1000Mbps

I don’t know which one to look at or get?

IPMI Management Cards, Setting IP Address

I have a question maybe someone can help with. Is it possible to set the IP address on a IPMI card before a system ships? That way when the customer gets it, it already has the IP address set to whatever was agreed on and they can log right in using that IP address?

Text Console Not Working -- Supermicro IPMI

I was able to login from IPMI View just fine, and everything works as expected except
"Text Console ". I was able to hit the start button and get the black screen on IPMI View, but that was just about it.

Only a cursor blinking without texts.

Is there something else that I should do in order to get text console working? I've tried all baud rates.

Out Of Band Connectivity- IPMI- Serial Console- KVM Over IP

Sep 23, 2008

When you can't access your server via SSH or Remote Desktop, what do you use to fix the problem without filing a ticket?

Serial console?
KVM over IP?
Dial up connection?
Backup network connection?
Get up and walk to the server? :-)

If you had a choice between them, what did you pick and why?

Does your dedicated server provider give it to you for free, or do you have to pay extra for it?

Possible Problem With The Ethernet Of My Dedi

Nov 4, 2009

i have recently get this server , we moved to this server in the same datacenter

Linux OS:centos 5.4
Kernel Version(uname -r)
Hardware Information:icore7 920 + 12gb ram
Software Version;csf firewall, ossec Intrusion Detection System, rvsitebuilder
Control Panel(if any)whm+ fantastico

yesterday the dc tech logged-in by ssh (root) cause we couldn't connect to the ftp box we keep our backup's (the new box couldnt connect to the ftp got time out)
They fixed it.

Today i got a time out and after 2 reset and restaring of services the server was back again.Then i got this messages and it still coming (3 hours now i get 1 similar message per 5 second )

Nov 4 12:31:20 gandalf kernel: martian source from, on dev eth0
Nov 4 12:31:20 gandalf kernel: ll header: ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:00:1a:4b:3a:7e:23:08:06

Also the firewall stopped the port scanning from a server within the same dc.

I checked it on google and the explanation's varies but most say that is a problem of the router/switch or similar.

Choosing Ethernet Switches

Feb 22, 2007

We're ready to setup 3-4 42U racks for servers and are in need of choosing Ethernet switches. What do you guys use and why?

I'm looked at Cisco switches, but lost in their product forest. I'm looked at Express 500, 2960 and 3750-E models. Is there any more difference (in exception of stacking, cli and hot-swap fan/psu) that I need to consider? Prices differentiate too much.

I'm also looked at Linksys/D-Link business products and they seems to have the same features as Cisco Express series, but only 50% cheaper.
