Hello Everybody,

Today I updated my FreeNAS Server from 11.2 to 11.3 and ran into a problem with IPMI. I managed to fix it by setting a new threshold for my CPU fan, which is connected to the Mainboard.

Now the FAN runs at 1100 RPM but I want it to run slower at 700 RPM or even a little lower than that. On the IPMI page I can only set a FAN Mode but not RPM Value. Therefore i wanted to know if someone knows how to control a FAN manually.

Thank you all for your help

See this script. I'm using this in multiple Freenas systems.

Thank you. Do I have to make any changes for my Board (I have a Supermicro A2SDi-4C-HLN4F)

Should work as is. I have used it with both x10 and x11 boards.
