I am using Debian 10.9 over a Tyan Thunder SX TN70EB7106 server. To use IPMI I installed the tools:

apt install freeipmi-tools ipmitool

Configured the network

# ipmitool lan set 1 ipsrc static
# ipmitool lan set 1 ipaddr
# ipmitool lan set 1 netmask
# ipmitool lan set 1 defgw ipaddr

and apparently, these changes were accepted

# ipmitool lan print 1
Set in Progress         : Set Complete
IP Address Source       : Static Address
IP Address              :
Subnet Mask             :
SNMP Community String   : AMI
IP Header               : TTL=0x40 Flags=0x40 Precedence=0x00 TOS=0x10
BMC ARP Control         : ARP Responses Enabled, Gratuitous ARP Disabled
Gratituous ARP Intrvl   : 0.0 seconds
Default Gateway IP      :

But after reboot, the IP is not responding.

# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable

Did I miss a step? What should I do?

There is no solution to this question. Tyan servers don't share an ethernet interface. To use IPMI you have to use the specific IPMI ethernet port.
