Questions tagged [ipmi]

Intelligent Platform Management Interface is a mechanism to manage and monitor computer hardware from the OS running on that hardware, or remotely over the network. It is implemented by a separate controller on the motherboard, called the Baseband Management Controller which may have a dedicated NIC or use one of the systems existing NICs. This tag should be used for questions related to IPMI hardware and software.
