Talos II / Re: Using IPMI Tool
« Last post by tl482 on Today at 11:02:37 am »
IMPI works when I ssh to the host but does not work when I try to run ipmi requests over the network to the BMC.  My goal for data collection is to not require the main host operating system's interaction at all to read data from sensors and I thought ipmi could offer some of that capability. However, I haven't been able to get amester or ipmi to work from a remote workstation.  Are there options that need to be set when the BMC firmware is built?

Maybe a better way to ask my question is how does the web server running on the BMC read sensors?  For example if I visit https://[bmc ip]/xyz/openbmc_project/sensors/enumerate I get essentially the same information provided by ipmitools on the main host OS.

Thanks for the help!

I am still running crashed amdgpu module with kernel 5.8.16. You can give FC33 a go by installing the last known-working kernel RPM package of FC32 on it

I think we could find out when one of us get their hands on the new card next month....

Does anybody have any idea what this means for Big Navi?

As they already merged patches into the kernel, should it just work out of the box?

The Big Navi launch is supposed to be on Wednesday, 28 October and we can potentially buy the cards in November.

Hi everyone, I read that day 27 of this month and so next week, Fedora 33 will be released in the final version. Do you know anything if the problem of Navi 10 and Nano graphic cards on Kernel has been finally solved? I'm not seeing any news about it yet and in the meantime the Kernel has arrived at 5.8.16 and I'm still not downloading it until I have sure news about how it works...

I have good news, I manged to get the driver working with Linux 5.7.0 kernel by enabling `amdgpu.dc=0` parameter in GRUB2.

Unfortunately this trick no longer work with 5.8.x -> 5.10.x

Hi MPC7500,

Is bmc ssh without dhcp IP setting truely possible / is there a factory bmc IP?

ssh: connect to host port 22: Network is unreacheable

1) I found this bmc IP adress from a talos ii guide,
yet I have no idea what the IP could be, I humbly believe because..

2) ... the absence of bmc IP seems to follow from the manual, namely, dhcp server 'must assign IP to bmc'...

Certain operations require BMC access to execute. The T2P9D01 BMC is attached to network port 1 via NCSI,
and is configured to request an IP address via DHCP. Once it is connected and has a valid IP address, you can
log in via SSH using the following default credentials:
Username: root
Password: 0penBmc
NOTE: It is strongly recommended that you change this default password immediately after login via the
passwd command on the BMC.

3) so I installed, I hope correctly, a dhcp to the second pc under debian.
yet for a process, more so than the solution You seemed to offer, this dhcp IP setting is a tedious and hazaduous challenge that I will do, just last.

Have an awesome day MPC7500!!!

I regularly use it, for example, to check fan speeds

Code: [Select]
sudo ipmitool sensor | grep RPM

ipmitool version 1.8.18-6 on Debian buster

There is an existing Perl script for Ganglia integration too:

I was thinking about extending ganglia-modules-linux to report data from IPMI, it could be written more efficiently as a C plugin.

Is anything unique required to setup IPMI for the TALOS II?  I've been unsuccessful at reading data using ipmi with the instructions provided in this document:

Are there any services that should be running on the BMC that I could check?  I would like to use the Amester tool, which uses ipmi to collect detailed information but so far have been unsuccessful.  There was no ipmitool binary on the BMC so I compiled a version of ipmitool to run and get the error below when running the command directly on the BMC.  Any help is appreciated!

Code: [Select]
root@talos:~/ipmitool# ./ipmitool sensors
Could not open device at /dev/ipmi0 or /dev/ipmi/0 or /dev/ipmidev/0: No such file or directory
