Wondering how our software development process works? Take a look!

Find me on twitter, or read my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you because I totally did.

However, I no longer work at Stack Exchange, Inc. I'll miss you all. Well, some of you, anyway. :)

comment Configuring SuperMicro IPMI to use one of the LAN interfaces instead of the IPMI port?
note that the factory default is IPMI failover (at least on the 5 new SuperMicro based servers I just bought) which leads to a lot of.. confusion. This is dangerous!

comment How does IPMI sideband share the ethernet port with the host?
Make sure your IPMI firmware is up to date! If there is a large enough disconnect between the IPMI firmware version and the IPMIView software version you'll get generic, cryptic "error connecting" when trying to initiate a KVM session! Updating to latest IPMI firmware (this can be done from the IPMIView utility main menu under File) fixed it. :p

comment Using Supermicro IPMI behind a Proxy?
VPN is working great for us as a conduit to multiple IPMI machines. Just set up a modern (128mb, fast CPU like the Asus RT-N16) router with Tomato and OpenVPN and it works a treat. OpenVPN could be easier to set up, yeah, but once set up it works!

this definitely works! We couldn't get subsequent commands to work because it reverts to DHCP, so we connected via DHCP and got the IP, then were able to reconfigure. I updated your answer to reflect turning DHCP off first.
