I have Dell R210 with iDRAC BMC (new name for old BMC). Which is on-board feature with shared NIC (I believe). Server is on colocation and I didnt set it up before sent there... So I asked for the remote hands to setup IPMI Over IP. They enabled it, set the IP and everything. The IP is different than main box IP. Also the box is cabled to NIC1 and the BMC supposed to share it (am I right?)
I can see new IP in the Open Server Administrator (installed on the box).
I tried Supermicro IPMI tool and I tried Dell ipmish.exe
command like this
ipmish -ip xxx -u root -p calvin sysinfo
gives BMC is not detected
What could be wrong? is there a diagnostics tool I can try? It must be something obvious. I just never used things like that before....
P.S. I read something about encryptions key in the Dell docs. But I understand that is for encrypted IPMI 2.0 and ipmish can use IPMI 1.5 without encryption.
