I want to setting monitoring ILOM in Zabbix 3.4


Linux zabbixapp01 4.1.12-103.3.8.el7uek.x86_64 #2 SMP Mon Aug 21 17:27:54 PDT 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I installed freeipmi-1.5.7 and tried test connection

/usr/sbin/ipmi-sensors -D LAN2_0 -h -u username -p password -l USER -W discretereading --no-header-output --quiet-cache --sdr-cache-recreate --comma-separated-output --entity-sensor-names

returned error

ipmi_ctx_open_outofband_2_0: internal error

How solve this problem?

  • FreeIPMI maintainer here. The "internal error" is extremely odd, indicating your motherboard has some IPMI protocol corner case that FreeIPMI does not know how to handle. If you could, start a thread on the freeipmi mailing list with --debug output and we can try and solve it. – Albert Chu Oct 5 '17 at 16:10

I tryied to install other application

yum install OpenIPMI OpenIPMI-tools


ipmitool sensor -H -I lanplus -U username -P password -L ADMINISTRATOR

returned list of sensors

enabled parameter StartIPMIPollers=3

nano /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf

Created own template fro example HP ILO

set data element group for example: Temperature, Voltage

after element data

    •   Name - PS0/P_IN
    •   Type - IPMI агент
    •   Key - PS0_P_IN
    •   IPMI sensor - PS0/P_IN
