Maas testing ipmi


#1

hey guys, i’m a noob to maas and to server clusters in general. i have two servers, 1 & 2, i have region and rack controllers on 1 and a rack on 2. i am trying to test the functionality of the ipmi utility on 2. i was going to install tftpd-hpa, etc and test it freehand, but i cant install without removing maas. so, i was wondering if there were any way to explicity test the ipmi on server 2 from 1?

IPMI is a protocol to talk to BMCs. It does not require a TFTP server. You can test it by running the following command

ipmipower -D LAN_2_0 -h <ip of BMC> -u <username> -p <password> -s

very good. i had tried that before with no luck, but i did fiddle around with the BMC settings and the command worked. now that i have verified that the server can be power cycled, i’ll test the MaaS functionality with the controller.

thank you
