Our company recently purchased some servers equipped with Intel
S5000PAL baseboards and we want to use the syscfg command line utility.
Basically we want to fetch system information of these Intel servers
(temperature, fan speed, etc) remotely. We are using some command line
tools (ipmitool and ipmiutil) to communicate with the BMCs of these
Intel servers, but failed. (We configured ip address of BMC, users, we
enabled ARP reply. We can ping the BMC ip address, but could not
connect it using ipmitool or ipmiutil. ) We thought that was because we
didn't configure the baseboard correctly. Is there some one who could
tell me how to configure the server board with the help of syscfg
command line utility to enable communication with BMC? And a little
example would be great.
Thanks in advance!
