I can’t seem to find any info on if they have a working iOS app. And also, I’ve got a supermicro sc846...

    How to update Supermicro BIOS and IPMI on H12SSL-NT

    I'm looking to update the BIOS and IPMI on my H12SSL-NT via the IPMI web interface but am unclear on a few details: 1) Should I update IPMI (BMC) first or BIOS first? 2) When updating IPMI, what are the current recommendations on the "Preserve Configuration", "Preserve SDR" and "Preserve SSL...

    [RESOLVED] SM MB X9DRi-LN4F+ no VGA output

    Except for the VGA, I think the mb works. I have cleared the BIOS, tried different CPUs, different memory, different vga monitors and cables. The MB boots and the fans scream. I get one beep and then in about 60 seconds the fans slow down. I checked the VGA jumper (JPG1) and no matter which...

    A workstation / home server build: IPMI versus vPro

    I'm looking into building a decent home workstation that double-functions as home server, running 24/7, accessible and managable through vpn. I'm planning to run virtual machines on it, although undecided yet what type, likely a proxmox hypervisor (type 1). Since I'm regularly abroad and since...

    IPMI On Supermicro X9 Boards

    Help. I have a supermicro blade chassis, 5037MR-H8TRF, with a few blades with X9 boards. The seller had previously used IPMI effectively (this is something I confirmed to be true) even so much as providing login info. However I can't get a link, even after resetting and cold rebooting BMC...

    X99-WS/IPMI: FRU & VGA Priority

    Hi, I’ve bought an used X99 WS / IPMI MB. It seems to work mostly fine. After an initial struggle on restoring the IPMI/iKVM password I’ve managed to login on it. Then I’ve discovered something I’ve never seen on my old DELL servers with iDRAC: FRU Information. After some research I’ve got that...

    SuperMicro IPMI alerts - do they alert on ECC error?

    Hello STH folx! I've read the IPMI guide and searched the Interwebs, and I am not finding the answer to this question: When I configure alerts in IPMI, email, but let's also consider SNMP Trap, will the IPMI alert me when a DIMM has recoverable or unrecoverable errors? I am assuming the answer...

    Heads-Up: Supermicro Unique IPMI Passwords

    So, I ran into this tonight with a new X11SPL. Apparently in November 2019 Supermicro started programming in unique passwords for IPMI access. It's no longer ADMIN/ADMIN. The username is still ADMIN, but the password is printed on a sticker on the board. BMC Unique Password Security Feature...

    IPMI IKVM + External display on Supermicro X11SBA-F?

    I've been thinking of getting X11SBA-F for to replace my aging operator machine, but it must be hooked to a monitor 24/7, and at the same time i want IPMI IKVM to be active as well. Otherwise, i'd rather get consumer motherboard without IPMI. Problem is, my previous experience with X11SCA-F...

    Please help me understand the fan controls of Supermicro MB's

    Hi there, I just bought a Supermicro X11SDV-4C-TP8F, and I really like it. The active cooler I bought from Supermicro is extremely noisy, though, and I wanted to have it a bit quieter. I read lots of blog posts about setting up the upper and lower threshold of the fan speed via impitools, as...

    Dell C6100 - Fans start out quiet, but over time grow louder

    Hey everyone, This isn't your usual "holy cow the C6100 is noisy!" question. My Intel (Tyan XS23-TY3) C6100 (after its initial jet engine startup) is actually rather quiet, likely because I am not pushing it too hard very often. I'm only running 2/4 blades as well, and they're located in the...
