I'm using ipmiutil.exe to reset the IPMI watchdog on my 64-bit Supermicro server (X11SBA-F) running Windows 10 Enterprise IOT, but it's not working returning the following error:
ipmiutil wdt -r ipmiutil wdt ver 3.13 -- BMC version 1.53, IPMI version 2.0 wdt data: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 Watchdog timer is stopped for use with reserved. Logging pretimeout is 0 seconds, pre-action is None timeout is 0 seconds, counter is 0 seconds action is No action Resetting watchdog timer ... reset_wdt: ret = 128 wdt data: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 Watchdog timer is stopped for use with reserved. Logging pretimeout is 0 seconds, pre-action is None timeout is 0 seconds, counter is 0 seconds action is No action ipmiutil wdt, Invalid Session Handle or Empty Buffer
I installed Intel IMB Driver downloaded from this link and tried both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of ipmiutil.exe but to no avail. Has anyone faced a similar error?
I tried disabling Windows IPMI driver ipmidrv.sys but it don't help. On further tests, I noticed that after enabling IPMI watchdog through BIOS, it still shows "Watchdog timer is stopped for use with reserved." when I issue "ipmiutil wdt". It appears that ipmituil is unable to obtain the correct setting on the watchdog.
Here's some more information:
