I have a S5520UR serverboard with the Intel RMM Installed with following firmwares and everything:
Host Power Status : Host is currently ON
RMM3 Status : Intel(R) RMM3 installed
Device (BMC) Available : Yes
BMC FW Build Time : Jun 13 2011 16:17:38
BMC FW Rev : 00.57
Boot FW Rev : 00.18
SDR Package Version : SDR Package 0.24
Primary HSC FW Rev : 02.09
Secondary HSC FW Rev : (not present)
Mgmt Engine (ME) FW Rev : 01.12.007.0
Local Control Panel (LCP) FW Rev : (not present)
Issues should be resolved with the Error about the video socket in the console view of Intel RMM, however, I still get this error altough I think and derive that from the system information, that everything is up to date. I read somewhere that with IPMItools I can restart the RMM console thing (without erasing settings) and all is OK then... Can someone help me to do this as a temporary workaround from a Windows client? My server is running ESXi 5...
OK guys, so far I have answerred one question myself, I was able to logon to the IPMI-shell with an Ubuntu machine on my network by installing "ipmitool" and opening a session by using this command:
ipmitool -H *IPADDRESS OF YOUR IPMI* -U root shell
After you open this session, you can do a cold reset:
mc reset cold
But I would like to get a solution longterm for this issue...
I can SSH from my PC to the IP address that the RMM Website is on and login, but the command "mc reset mc "MC reset cold" gives an error. I am at the ">> SMASH-CLP Console v1.09 <<"</code>
I turned the power off for the server and turned it back on, but still get the video socket error.
If I have my data center actually pull the plug and re-plug, is that likely to reset the RMM?
your code stack is pretty old.
- Record your BMC configuration
- Update to newer BMC (and the rest of the code stack)
- Restore the BMC defaults (fwpiaupd /setdef)
- Edit the BMC settings back to your configuration
After doing these steps, I have not heard of the issue returning.
