    Asrock BMC no longer accessible after SSL certificate install

    ok, took me a while to sort this out. A full reset, clearing of the BIOS didn't help. In the end, I had to do a full reflash of the BIOS. This was the only solution to this particular problem which I find a little worrying: supplying a certificate that, for some reason, it doesn't like...

    Asrock BMC no longer accessible after SSL certificate install

    Final update: The reset was successful in that the user account and password was reset to admin / admin. I can se this with the ipmitool - if I have the wrong credentials, I get a Error: Unable to establish IPMI v2 / RMCP+ session message. However, when I use the correct credentials, I'm still...

    Asrock BMC no longer accessible after SSL certificate install

    Aha. I've had some success! I stumbled across this site ipmitool 1.8.11 vib for ESXi And managed to get it installed. I ran the command and it just returned a prompt. I assumed it worked because shortly after, the IP side went down (ping dropped) and after a few minutes, came back up. So the BMC...

    Asrock BMC no longer accessible after SSL certificate install

    Ah. OK. Only issue, I'm running vSphere on it, so no bare metal OS access. I guess this is serial? If I can have a passthrough serial or something... I'll give it a try.

    Asrock BMC no longer accessible after SSL certificate install

    Yes, but I'm completely flummuxed how this works. Their website tells you to install ipmitool which is straight foward, then jumps straight to that second command. No information how you connect to it! I've tried ipmitool -H <BMC IP address> -U admin and then entering the password, but I just...

    Asrock BMC no longer accessible after SSL certificate install

    I get an error, cannot connect. Not an invalid cert. I have the password and can login over SSH. Is there a way to reset the BMC over SSH? I've found how to reset the server but not the BMC itself.

    Asrock BMC no longer accessible after SSL certificate install

    Since purchasing an Asrock rack X570D4U-2L2T, it's been fine and the BMC IPMI has been really useful. Today, I tried installing a certificate so have proper SSL (certificate generated from my own private PKI CA), and I must have done something wrong or it has serious QA issues as I can no longer...

    What MB for low power vSphere ESXi ?

    Thanks CreoleLakerFan. I'll see what variants of those boards are available. I guess the issue is wanting IPMI. Without that, a plethora of consumer desktop boards are available but if you want remote KVM and power options then that really limits the choices to these Asrock Rack and Supermicro...

    What MB for low power vSphere ESXi ?

    First post here, I hope someone can offer some advice... :) I'm looking at building a small home lab virtualisation setup. I use ESXi at work so would like to stick to that for home. I'm not too bothered about official support as long as it works and is stable. For now, I've been using my...
