Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It's a R410 with the latest BMC firmware.

I can connect it from a MacBook.

$ ipmitool -v -I lanplus  -H 192.168.1.23 -U root user list
Password:
ID  Name         Callin  Link Auth  IPMI Msg   Channel Priv Limit
2   root             true    true       true       ADMINISTRATOR

But it fails to active SOL.

$ ipmitool -I lanplus  -H 192.168.1.23 -U root sol payload enable 1 2
$ ipmitool -I lanplus  -H 192.168.1.23 -U root sol activate

Error activating SOL payload: Invalid data field in request

Here is the results from sol info.

$ ipmitool -I lanplus  -H 192.168.1.23 -U root sol info
Password:

How to get the SOL to work in this case?
