HelloI was looking for any info about remotely managing the Windmill / Winterfell servers but could not find any.
Does anybody here have that working (e.g. IPMI)? I would just like to do simple stuff such as remote boot, restart etc. in case of power failure. Is that possible on these servers?
Mine is working with freeipmi and dcmitool from quanta under ubuntu 16.04.03 LTS.
You need to follow the instructions under In-Band management with some twists.
OpenCompute - Ubuntu Wiki
Download the source files from Packages in “Open Compute Certification Tools” : Open Compute Certification Tools : “Open Compute Developers” team
for mei-dkms add #include <linux/irq.h> to mei_dev.h
for dcmi-dkms replace f_dentry with f_path.dentry in dcmi_main.c
you need to reboot in order to load the newly compiled mei module.
load the module dcmi.
I use the already compiled dcmitool from the wiki.
You can use freeipmi tool and dcmitool now, ipmitool does not work.
I could also connect remotely from a windows box using ipmiutils.
