I have an X8DTH motherboard which I decided to upgrade the bios and BMC on. Both applied without issue according to their utils.

Upon reboot the system waits for the BMC for a very long time and then eventually states that the BMC has failed.

Inside of the BIOS under BMC it also shows as failed.

Attempting to flash the BMC again using "Yafukcs -full -force-boot rom.ima" states that the BMC isn't found...

Does anyone know if a way to flash this BMC forcibly?

Thanks,
M

Usually once the BMC gives out like that, it's done. I have a few servers this has happened to, from different manufacturers. If the board is still under warranty, ping SuperMicro. Their RMA process is pretty decent, and I've had good success with them in the past.

Thank you for the reply. I had a feeling that this was the case but figured that if there were a way recover, someone from STH would be the one that finds it :)
