I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 and ipmitool. LAN1 is used as channel 1 and there is different IP address for OS than for BMC and default GW has been set also. Ipmitool is successful in executing "local" commands like
ipmitool lan print 1
but when I try to execute remote commands like
ipmitool -H 10.11.5.12 -I lanplus -U USER -P PASSWORD chassis power status
I get output
Error: Unable to establish IPMI v2 / RMCP+ session
Also same kind of command like
ipmitool -H 10.11.5.12 -I lan -U USER -P PASSWORD chassis power status
I get output
error: Unable to establish LAN session
Unable to get Chassis Power Status
I can't even get any ping reply from this BMC interface. What is wrong with my setup?
Just to be clear, is this only working locally but you are not getting any output when trying to remote access the unit? Would it be any firewall configuration that might be blocking the access to it?
I would recommend using the Integrated BMC Web Console and see if you can access it locally and from the outside to compare results. This is a very resourceful option for monitoring purposes.
