Configuring IPMI

 

Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) is a message-based hardware management interface that enables remote monitoring, management, and recovery capabilities, regardless of the status of the server. It defines a set of interfaces that are common to computer hardware and firmware that you can use to monitor system health and manage the system.

IPMI operates independently of the operating system (OS) and allows you to manage a system remotely even in the absence of the OS or the system management software, or even if the monitored system is not powered on. IPMI can also function when the OS has started.

To configure IPMI:

  1. During the system bootup, press Delete to enter the BIOS.
  2. To navigate in the BIOS, use your arrow keys and press Enter.
  3. Select IPMI > BMC Network Configuration. See Figure 1.
