Thank you for contacting Intel Server Community Support.


I was reviewing your thread and I would like to verify if you have checked the following link:


The guide above includes useful information about the IPMI Tool.


On the other hand, could you please provide me more information of your system such as:

  1. The information about the motherboard you are using like Brand name and model.
  2. Operating System.


I will provide you some useful commands that can help you:


1. Man and help info for IPMItool

ipmitool help

man ipmitool


2. To check firmware version of the BMC

ipmitool mc info


3. To reset the Management Controller (mc), you may use mc or bmc -both work

ipmitool mc reset [ warm | cold ]


4. Hanging BMC

ipmitool bmc reset cold


5. Show field-replaceable-unit details

ipmitool fru print


6. Show sensor output

ipmitool sdr list

ipmitool sdr type list

ipmitool sdr type Temperature

ipmitool sdr type Fan

ipmitool sdr type ‘Power Supply’


7. Chassis commands

ipmitool chassis status

ipmitool chassis identify # turn on front panel identify light (default 15s)

ipmitool [chassis] power soft # initiate a soft-shutdown via acpi

ipmitool [chassis] power cycle # issue a hard power off, wait 1s, power on

ipmitool [chassis] power off # issue a hard power off

ipmitool [chassis] power on # issue a hard power on

ipmitool [chassis] power reset # issue a hard reset


8. Modify boot device for next reboot

ipmitool chassis bootdev pxe

ipmitool chassis bootdev cdrom

ipmitool chassis bootdev bios


9. Logging

ipmitool sel info

ipmitool sel list

ipmitool sel elist # extended list (see manpage)

ipmitool sel clear


Remote Access: For remote access, you need to setup user and network settings. The preferred method is at boot time on BMC, alternatively from the BMC Web Console, or from the OS via ipmitool.

10. Display the configured BMC users on the local server

ipmitool user list 1


11. Reset password for the BMC default root user (userid ’2′) on the local server

ipmitool user set password 2


12. Display the LAN settings of the BMC on the local server

ipmitool lan print 1


13. Configure LAN settings of the BMC on the local server

ipmitool lan set 1 ipsrc [ static | dhcp ]

ipmitool lan set 1 ipaddr {YOUR DESIRED IP}

ipmitool lan set 1 netmask {YOUR NETMASK}

ipmitool lan set 1 defgw ipaddr


After configuring the LAN settings, you should be able to connect remotely using the ‘lanplus’ interface of IPMItool. The following is an example:

ipmitool -I lanplus -U root -H {YOUR DESIRED IP} chassis status


14. Change system state

ipmitool -I lanplus -H <ip> -U <user> chassis power <status|on|off|cycle|reset>


15. Get debug info

ipmitool lan print

ipmitool -I lanplus -H <ip> -U <user> shell # get ipmitool shell, type 'help'

ipmitool -I lanplus -H <ip> -U <user> sel list # Show system event log

ipmitool -I lanplus -H <ip> -U <user> sdr # List sensor data


16. Get SEL info & save to a text file

ipmitool sel list > sel.txt

ipmitool -l lanplus -H <ip> -U root -P admin sel list > sel.txt


IPMI frequently used raw commands:


1. To disable/enable ssh

ipmitool raw 0x30 0xb1 0x00 0x80 0x00                   # disable ssh

ipmitool raw 0x30 0xb1 0x01 0x80 0x00                   # enable ssh


2. To disable/enable HTTPS

ipmitool raw 0x30 0xb1 0x00 0x79 0x00                   # disable HTTPS

ipmitool raw 0x30 0xb1 0x01 0x79 0x00                   # enable HTTPS


3. To cold reset the BMC

ipmitool raw 0x06 0x02


4. To find out PSU firmware version

ipmitool raw 0x06 0x52 0x0f 0xb0 0x04 0xd9
