Hi,

I'm trying to get the new IPMI monitor to monitor out Dell servers from PA Server monitor

I've tried this steps : - open UDP port 623 in the firewall - made sure udp traffic was permitted to te PA monitor server (Satellite) - enabled IPMI to LAN in the iDrac config - Created an admin user on the iDrac controller, permitted to use IPMI over LAN - Added the ip-adres for the iDrac card (dedicated NIC) in PA server monitor - Configured this node for server type "use IPMI"

I now get asked for username/pw, but whe i use the credentials i created on the iDrac, i get this message :

Failed to access [Servername] via IPMI protocols. Error: Cannot connect to IPMI Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) over IPMI LAN (err -3)

Do i forget anything ?

Kind regards, Tom

Hi Tom --

We use the ipmiutil to gather IPMI information. To test it directly, you can run this command line:

"C:\program files (x86)\pa server monitor\ipmiutil.exe" sensor -N {host-ip-address} -U {username} -P {password} -c -t -w

Note that the command line parameters are case sensitive.

My guess is this is firewall related. You can copy ipmiutil.exe along with libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll to a folder on a different computer (nearer to the DRAC so there are no firewalls in between) and try it there.

Hi Doug,

Thanks for your answer, but i do not think this is a FW is, as i can succesfully use IPMI communication with the dell tools from the same machine (ipmish.exe)

after some trial en error, i found that the ipmiutil command line works if i add "-F lan2"

is there a way to add this parameter to the call made from PA server monitor ?

Kind regards, Tom Regeer Reeleezee

Thank you for that feedback. You shouldn't need to specify the driver. Our next update (6.3.0.44 or newer) will figure out which one to use and then store that for future use.
