S2600KPR: BMC FW Problems

I wanted to ask you about the Motherboard "S2600KPR" and some problems that I am facing with the new Firmware version .

With the latest FW version[1] I am getting this error message,

"Your session has expired due to inactivity. You will need to login again"

And with the old one that came with the Hardware [2] it is working flawless.

If I downgrade to 1.43 it works again. Is this a known issue?

I have also another question about BMCs and Ciphers.

Why do the BMC just works with CIPHERS 1? We would like to work with Cipher3 like we do with other products.

See,

root@host1 ~ # ipmitool channel getciphers ipmi 1

Hello,

 

 

We have not received reports from other customers about this situation. I will look into this and get back to you.

 

 

Additionally, I do not handle the details on why the BMC only works with CIPHERS 1. I see your point, and I am going to share your feedback with our product managers to see if we can add this feature in a later firmware release.

 

 

Regards,

Hello Dave,

Thanks for reporting the issue with CIPHERS.

About the BMCs issue, we found that it just happens with the RHEL7.3 Firefox (firefox-45.7.0-1). Can you please report it too?

Best regards,

Hello Cesar,

Do you have an ETA for a new and fixed BMC release?

We would like to go to the latest released versions, because of BIOS, but this BMC issue is a showstopper for us.

Best regards,

Mario Trangoni
