How can I have syscfg to work as intended?

Hi,

I installed syscfg from Syscfg_V14_1Build19_AllOS.zip on an Intel KNL platform. However, I get the following:

[tania@sunshine mybuild]$ sudo /usr/bin/syscfg/syscfg -i

Error: BMC Type Get failed

Here is the detail on the system:

[tania@sunshine mybuild]$ sudo dmidecode | grep -A3 '^System Information'

System Information

Manufacturer: Supermicro

Product Name: SYS-5038K-I

Version: 0123456789

The following command: sudo /usr/bin/syscfg/syscfg /b /s

generates a syscfg.INI file with the following contents:

[tania@sunshine ~]$

[tania@sunshine ~]$ cat syscfg.INI

; Warning!!! Warning!!! Warning!!!

; ---------------------------------

; This file has been generated in a system with the BIOS/Firmware

; specifications as mentioned under [SYSTEM] section. Please do not

; modify or edit any information in this section. Attempt to restore

; these information in incompatible systems could cause serious

; problems to the systems and could lead the system non-functional.

; Note: The file is best seen using wordpad.

[SYSTEM]

BIOSVersion=2.0 ; This field should not be edited

FWOpcodeVersion=1.43.0 ; This field should not be edited

[BootOrder::Hard Disk]

[tania@sunshine ~]$

My intention is to change the KNL cluster and memory modes using syscfg commands, such as:

sudo /usr/bin/syscfg/syscfg /bcs "" "Cluster Mode" 4

sudo /usr/bin/syscfg/syscfg /bcs "" "Memory Mode" 1

How can I achieve that on my system?

Thanks,

Tania

I see that is only tested with Intel Boards.

 

 

I will recommend contacting the manufacturer of your system board (Supermicro).

 

For a compatible file.
