I can install Ubuntu 10.10 and 10.04.2 through Supermicro IPMI remote console just fine but after the installer finishes and system reboots, the keyboard does not work through Remote Console window. The physical keyboard attached to the server itself works though.
I can access all the server's BIOS setups (motherboard, raid, nic) through remote console but as soon as Ubuntu takes over, it does not work.
We tried some other bootable cd's and with them the remote console window keyboard works. Even when installing Windows OS we can use the remote keyboard.
