Great - I'm in IPMI on my home machine (but that one works fine... just wanted to confirm the username/password combination to pass that on to them on the machine that has the heartbeat). If anyone else reads this the username is still ADMIN and the password is the one under 'PWD' for newer motherboards produced in late 2019 and after. Since I'm able to login successfully, I'll be able to give them the same instructions and see what we can do from there. I'll update this thread in about 12 hours or so as soon as I get ahold of them.Yep, that's the password for IPMI. The username should be ADMIN.
ADMIN/ADMIN will NOT work for the newer motherboards, don't drive yourself crazy .
Thanks guys for helping out with that so far... I need them to do the same on their end so we can see things. I'm guessing I should report back anything in the Miscellaneous -> Snooping section and any post codes there? Anything else I should be grabbing from the IPMI to diagnose it further?
Shall I have them re-install the CPU, insert 24-pin and 4+4 pin, and cable into the IPMI ethernet port and power it on and then try to get into the IPMI from another machine and report back?
@yesoos - got it will consider those and will report back. The contact for these damn CPUs/boards is very hit or miss.... even when using my 1/4 adjustable torque screw driver. Crazy how finicky these things are.
Will report back ASAP after I hear back from them.
Thanks everyone - yesoos, tesla and freebit for all the help thus far... hope I find something in the IPMI on the machines they have over there that were working just fine before they were shipped.
