Creating an IPMI User Account with the C-Web Interface

An IPMI username and password are required to connect to an IPMI interface. You can create new IPMI user accounts so that IPMI authentication can occur.

To create an IPMI user account:

  1. Click Configure, expand System, and then click IPMI.

    The IPMI pane appears.

  2. Select User from the drop-down list, enter the name of the user in the pop-up dialog box, and click OK.

    The IPMI / User pane appears.

  3. Enter a password. When the user account is created, the password is encrypted with a Base64 encoding scheme.
  4. Click Apply.

    The IPMI user appears in the side pane under IPMI.
