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.

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

Text Console Not Working -- Supermicro IPMI

Apr 9, 2008

I have a SuperMicro server with AOC-SIM1U.

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.

Supermicro IPMI Card - (AOC-IPMI20-E) Or 3rd Party Remote Reboot Port

Jun 26, 2008

Any experiences with Supermicro IPMI Card - (AOC-IPMI20-E)? I need basic Power managment like APC reboot ports.

Since its very likely that we will get some Supermicro servers, I thought why not add the IPMI card.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Subscription And PHP Max Memory Assignment

Jan 19, 2015

When you create a subscription for a customer, there is a php max memory assignment in the service plan. I am wondering if the max memory is based on per website customer creates or it is based on per account..

if it is based on per website, that means if a customer create 100 website under one subscription....and per php max memory is 256m, that means they will be using max. that correct?

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?

Apr 16, 2007

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?

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?

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?

IPMI Management Cards, Setting IP Address

Apr 3, 2007

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?

The card is a supermicro Supermicro AOC-SIMLC

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?

Oct 14, 2008

im running out of space on one of my sites but i have more then plenty of data transfer.

Unfortunately my hosting packaged it weird where they provide not enough hd space. Im trying to figure out is there a way where i can use another server or hosting company that can provide space only and use their servers just for space?

i think offered this but wasnt sure how exactly this works.

HP ProLiant Vs SuperMicro

Apr 13, 2008

I have many years of experience with Intel (SR1325, SR2200, SR2300, etc) and HP ProLiant DL servers, and have come to love HP. Their ILO2 remote management/power/KVM/VirtualMedia feature is hands-down the best I've used, and for me it's been 100% rock-solid reliable (unlike the horror stories heard about Dell DRAC cards flaking out and locking up when you need them most).

Now there's something shiny catching my eye-- the Supermicro 1U Twin systems.

Given my long positive history with HP, I'm reluctant to consider another brand, but it is hard to ignore double-density servers with colo prices (rackspace costs, not just power costs) spiraling upward.

I would love to hear from folks who have used both HP and Supermicro boxes in production. Specifically, about reliablity of the Supermicro platform in general AND about the reliability of their IPMI management modules even under Murphy's Law situations. The last thing I need is not to be able to remote-console or power cycle an unresponsive server because the IPMI card is flaky.

Supermicro // Dell // HP

Jul 22, 2009

I know this topic has been brought up before and I wanted to revisit this again. We are a growing hosting company looking to expand our Dedicated server offerings. So far, we have been renting servers and reselling but now we have begun colocating our equipment and are looking for hardware vendors.

Would you recommend us to... our own servers using the Supermicro platform?
...purchase pre-built servers from Dell?
...purchase pre-build servers from HP?

Pricing is of major concern along with speed to provision new orders. Although we don't have a dedicated resource for putting together servers, this is something we can look into should the volume of orders increase. Scalability and Flexibility is a MUST

Thanks for chiming in...

SuperMicro Airshroud

Dell, HP Or SuperMicro

May 30, 2009

The technical level in our org is quite low.

We would like some advice on the difference between

1. Supermicro PDSML-LN2

2. DELL PowerEdge R200

3. HP Proliant DL120

Some web hosts here in Singapore are leasing them at comparable rates.

Our research shows that the Dell and HP are comparable and the SuperMicro appears to be in a different (lower) class.

How can the servers be leased at comparable rates if they are from different classes?

Tyan Vs Supermicro

Aug 10, 2009

I've been having a look at a lot of boards and Tyan seem to be beating Supermicro in terms of range at

I've seen some unique features with Supermicro such as Remote KVM and such built into the motherboard, but it only seems to be with the very pricey series unless I'm looking in the wrong direction

Anybody have any thoughts to share about which is the better manufacturer?

EMC SAN And Supermicro Servers

Apr 22, 2008

I am interested to find out if anyone out there has hooked up an EMC SAN to a supermicro box running Redhat Linux. Fiber Channel implementation would be great but would love to hear opinions about iSCSI as well. I was told that EMC doesn't support Supermicro boxes and while that may be true I would like to know if anyone there has tried it.

Dell Vs. Supermicro

Apr 26, 2007

configuration on Supermicro hardware and dell hardware, the pricing is pretty much the same 100+/- so thats not an issue.

But I am having a hard time to decide if I should go with supermicro or dell.

But here are the points which I have in mind.

- As far as dell goes, there is a central place for support, for example, if I have any issues, I know who to call exactly and get the issue solved, no resellers involved. If I go with supermicro and buy the hardware from a 3rd party, I dont know who to go to for support say a Motherboard fails or if I have any other questions, should I ask Supermicro themselves or the reseller?

- Has a DRAC card which I've heard is much more powerful than IPMI and I've heard Supermicro has no hardware for remote management as powerful as DRAC, I dont know how true that is.

- If I need any parts I know where I have to go to order them and what exactly to order since they have specific parts for specific server models, I dont know about supermicro.

I know, most of my points are benefiting Dell. But I've heard from the research that Supermicro hardware use less power and have less hard drive failures than Dell Servers, I dont know how true that is.

Or perhaps recommend an alternative reliable case manufacturer.

I tried reloading the system and same issue.

SuperMicro Server Build

I received a chassis from SuperMicro today. It came with a translucent thin piece of plastic (about as thin as a piece of paper). The plastic has holes cut out that are roughly the same as the holes in the mother board. What is this thing? Is it just a guide so you know where to put the mounting screws?

SuperMicro Network Drops

Sep 1, 2008

I have 4 SuperMicro servers, all of them have a problem with network dropping out 3-5 times a day, moreso during high use periods, and moreso on the servers with higher usage.

The graphs of network speed I have show the speed dropping to 0. All of the servers have this problem. 1 of the servers is a 6015 with 2x Xeon CPU, 16GB ram, RAID10 4x500GB. (don't have the exact model handy). The other 3 are 6015B-T+ with 1x Xeon CPU, 4GB ram, 2x sata drives.

These servers host game servers. The bandwidth usage on these boxes ranges from 1-5 Mb/s. CPU usage is anywhere from 10-30% during the dropouts.
