I have one of these:
And IPMI is just not operating anymore, it had been at one point. It comes up as non functional in the BIOS (i.e. "Status of BMC Not Working" & "IPMI Firmware Revision 0.02") and causes the boot process to wait for ages. I can't seem to disable it altogether. I want to try flashing the IPMI Bios as it would be handy if it worked, but the instructions seem to be very poor to entirely missing.
I download the IPMI firmware file which is said to contain instructions but I am presented with an IMA file inside a compressed zip image. Unfortunately, the IMA file is not what it appears. It's not a win image file as I first thought... win image doesn't recognise it.
There are multiple instructions and various utilities floating about the supermicro website. But no clear direction on which one to use. I did find some dos utilities for other motherboards on the website.
Has anyone done this before? where do I start?
