Hi


I just received a motherboard from Supermicro after upgrade with new VRM’s. It had this this new IPMI password feature.

As well as the new scripts, I can confirm the resetting the password with Supermicro IPMIcfg. in DOS worked as normal.

I could not reset the IPMI password using IPMItool raw commands within a Linux OS.



I hope that helps.

I was thinking about doing a piece on this.

There are other new changes as well. One example is that if you try to set ADMIN/ ADMIN in the web GUI you get an error because it does not meet 8 character password requirements.
