SOL disconnects when "Remote Reboot to BIOS Setup"
I have this issue that is driving me crazy. I have (2) computers with the same like hardware with a DQ57TM.
On one of the computers, when I "Remote Reboot to BIOS Setup" using the "Manageability Commander Tool" the SOL disconnects. I have the lates .37 Bios installed, locally provisioned. If I turn the computer off completely I can ping the box and reconnect the MCT. If I turn on the computer, once I'm in BIOS, no go. Very strange and very frustrating. The other computer works just fine.
Mobo: DQ57TM ver: AAE70931-303 AMT Ver: 22.214.171.1245 Bios: TMIBX10H.86A.0037.2010.0528.1504
PS. I have also tried setting a static IP address and itstill disconnects the SOL connection once it remotes to bios.
Jonathan, If you are truly doing everything exactly the same on each system (and they are identical OEM, model and BIOS/firmware), then it doesn't seem you are doing anything wrong since one system works fine. I suggest that you file a support request with your OEM on the system that is not working.
Have you tried doing a CMOS clear on the system that isn't working? Sometimes I find that if I'm getting strange behaviors it helps. Also, you might try reflashing with the latest firmware. I have also found that sometimes that helps (although I can't tell you why...)
