Hello, I have an Intel 1U Server with the S2600GL motherboard
I am unable to login via web management, login failed although I am sure that is the password.
Tried to ssh as well, I get
Failed to communicate with IPMI stack..
Discovery of Targets Failed......exiting
Initialization Of Smash Failed......Exiting
Connection to 192.168.77.19 closed.
Everything has been updated to latest firmware, management accessible via web and ssh. RMM4 key present
Is there a way to fully reset BMC to factory or erase all it's settings? Currently no joy with ipmitool cold reset...
Any advise please
Thank you for contacting Intel Costumer Support.
As we investigated on the Intel Server Board S2600GZ/GL http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/sb/s2600gzgl_tps_r2_4.p... technical product specification, we found no option to fully reset the BMC settings. What we recommend in these cases is to override the old users and IP settings to recover the web access.
However, we would like to go the extra mile with this request and further investigate the BMC options for you. We will keep you posted on the investigation's outcome.
Thank you for your time
Hi, I was able to restore it via syscfg , so there is a way.
The command is:
Reset SYSTEM configurations: /RestoreFirmwareSettings or /rf
Reset the BMC: /ResetBMC or /rbmc
That did it.
Thank you for the help, topic can be closed.
