try admin / adminSo I bought E5-2680V4 and this server. Now I'm a bit stuck. The bmc does not seem to let me in with default admin/password combo? Any ideas how to reset the BMC password to default? I would rather not have to buy and wait for a v3 cpu just so I could change the BMC settings in BIOS
I tried 2x 16gb sticks of ram and everything booted fine, the ram was fine and works well, tested in a r7910, this server doesn't appear to support lrdimm 64gb sticks of ram.I got 3 of the R180 servers, I have one that I am trying to setup currently, its screen is displaying "waiting for chipset to initialize."
I was able to login to the ipmi via admin admin, but I reset it to the defaults to clear any previous set configurations and now the admin/admin login will not work. Anyways to find out what the ipmi login would be?
I have 2x e5 2678v3's in it with 2x 64gb ddr4 ram.
Okay,Ubuntu live boot for ipmi password reset
sudo ipmitool user list 1
ubuntu@ubuntu:~/ipmitool$ sudo ipmitool user list 1
ID Name Callin Link Auth IPMI Msg Channel Priv Limit
1 true true true ADMINISTRATOR
2 root true true true ADMINISTRATOR
3 admin true true true ADMINISTRATOR
sudo ipmitool user set password ID "password"
sudo ipmitool user set password 2 test
will set the root users password to test.
which version exactly is the proper one to flash? The 128Mb one or the 256Mb one?Kris, you can keep blaming Gigabyte for not making the difference between 2 images not clear enough but ultimately it was you who decided to flash the wrong image.
The latest version of the flashing script does not do any guessing - it requires user to select the memory size. The socflash binary just flashes the specified image. If user decides to flash the wrong image it would not matter if they used CLI or web UI - the end result would be the same.
Also it's the other way around - it's flashing 256Mb image instead of (proper for this system) 128Mb one what results in bricking.
This is to control SATA hard drives it is not a native SAS Controllers meaning a sas drive isn’t supported.I am a newbe here so dont punch
Is there any chance to insert 8Tb SAS disks into this server without external pcie sas controller?
I've seen a 2x mini sas in description, is it for SAS HDD?
BMC on MD90-FS0 rev1.0 boards (i.e. the boards from the OP) comes with a single 1 Gigabit DDR3 chip soldered on. That's 128 Megabytes of RAM. That's the distinction between 4.xx and 8.xx firmwares. The 8.xx branch requires 256 Megabytes of memory to run.which version exactly is the proper one to flash? The 128Mb one or the 256Mb one?
Thank you! I just flashed the 128MB and it worked perfectly.BMC on MD90-FS0 rev1.0 boards (i.e. the boards from the OP) comes with a single 1 Gigabit DDR3 chip soldered on.

I couldn't get the WebUI to do the BMC flash for me, so I just made a freedos thumb drive and flashed my 3 that way. Smooth as silk. I love these, and am really fighting not getting 2 more - I honestly like them better than my Supermicro and Quanta servers!Thank you! I just flashed the 128MB and it worked perfectly.
I bought 3 of these servers to experiment with proxmox and HA, so far things are running well.
I think my next task should be to update the bmc as it is on v4.10 and the other two bmc's are on 4.75 and 4.88
both the 4.75 and 4.88 version have a hardware tab in the bmc settings, the v4.10 does not.
Do you know where I can get the newer bmc to flash over the web gui?
Thanks for all the help, I am just a college student trying to learn as much as possible.
