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?

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 scan.co.uk

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?

Centos On Tyan Transport GT20

Apr 10, 2009

Server Tyan Transport GT20 B5151
CPU P4 3.0GHZ HyperThreaded
memory 2GB Kingston RAM DDR400
3 hardisks 250 gb, 2 for raid, 1 spare

it seems very hard to install centos on this box, i cannot figure out how to do.

i used a network install, and first of all the grub loader gave an error.

i used all standard procedures for install.

i think its the raid controller messing up with it.

does somebody know or already has used such system with hardware raid controller and one spare hdd to install centos?

Tyan Motherboard With Supermicro Case

Jun 3, 2007

I purchased a Tyan S3970 (Tomcat h1000e) motherboard with a Supermicro SC820 Case, 'cuz I got a good deal on the combo. After I purchased it I realized that the back-cover does not match up, and the connector wires are short. (ie. The NIC/power LED wires do not reach the connector). Does anyone have a solution to this problem.

Parts To Fit Tyan Mboard And Supermicro Case

Jul 2, 2007

I got a good deal on the Supermicro SC822T-R550LPB case, and then bought a Tyan Motherboard(S3970).

Unfortunately, the IO shield that comes w/the board does not fit the case, and the one from the case does not fit the mboard. A set of FAN cables do not reach the mboard either. Does anyone know of any place that sells these parts?

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?

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.

Central Management For Servers With IPMI Cards?

We've been investigating software and appliances that would allow us a central, web based login to manage access and users to all the servers with IPMI cards. Does anyone use anything other than appliances from avocent or raritan?

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

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.

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?

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.
