I guess you're on BMC firmaware v2.0 you could easily sync the time via NTP on the BMC GUI. Should be straight forward. Or login into BMC and activate the NTP service.

I have been beating my head against these instructions, using an ethernet adapter for my 2015 MacBook Pro and the default mac install of ssh:
https://wiki.raptorcs.com/wiki/Talos_II_Beginner%27s_Quick_Start_Guide

Both systems are disconnected from any means of internet connection except the crossover ethernet cable connecting the Mac directly to the BMC-shared ethernet port on the Blackbird. The Blackbird does not want to hold on to the provided gateway IP address, dropping it after a few seconds and ipmitool reporting a gateway IP of 0.0.0.0. I've tried other arbitrary gateway IPs which ipmitool indicates are held, but after using ifconfig to manually set the IP and netmask for the Mac's en3 interface, ssh reliably times out trying to connect to 192.168.0.42. Also no luck trying to visit https://192.168.0.42 with any web browser installed in the system.

What am I missing?

What BMC version do you have? did you see this in the quick start...?

Quote
Please note that older releases of BMC firmware had an issue where the IP could not be set. If you run the commands listed below but the IP information does not change (and you cannot work with the factory defaults), upgrade your BMC as explained in https://wiki.raptorcs.com/wiki/Talos_II/Firmware.

It’s version 2.00, so this shouldn’t apply…

Just type the IP address of the blackbird in a browser to reach the GUI.

I have tried - it just seems to time out. The BMC isn’t holding onto 192.168.1.1 for the gateway IP. I can set it to any other arbitrary IP, but if I set it to 192.168.1.1, it resets to either 0.0.0.0 or the last arbitrary IP I set. I’d like to not have to put in a support ticket, but we will see.

How did you set the IP address?
Normally the BMC is receiving automatically the IP via dhcp.

I followed the directions in the link to setup the BMC password for the first time, then used the .42 address to connect. If that’s not the correct IP address, let me know.

If you're directly wired together, the gateway IP can be 0.0.0.0 because the only other host is your client. I don't think that's your problem. Since you know the MAC address for the Blackbird, I suppose you could forge an arp entry (arp -s).

Just tried that, setting arp for the server/Blackbird’s IP address directly to the Blackbird’s MAC address on the MacBook Pro client, and it’s still timing out. As below:

sudo arp -a 193.168.0.42 [the Blackbird MAC address]

edit: Also repeated the client steps for a USB thumb drive install of Ubuntu booting on my Windows machine, following the Talos II Quick Start directions again. That version of SSH is at least polite enough to indicate that it finds no route to the host in a shorter period of time than macOS's timeout. I don't suppose I need to supply it with a specific port...?

The IP address 192.168.0.42 in the quick start guide is an example.

I opened a ticket with Raptor, who reached out last night and indicated that my problems mirror an issue encountered with more new Blackbirds than my own. Quote:

“Quick question -- have you been able to access the network from the installed OS or is that also broken? We're tracking down a potential issue with the new Blackbird programming line, hence the question -- the symptoms match an older issue we had seen and thought was fixed for the production line.”

Also, I swear I didn’t mean to eat this much of the Void Linux thread on what appears to be a Blackbird-specific issue. If these posts could be moved elsewhere, I’d do it.

edit: a USB wireless networking dongle is working well enough for now… so I’m on a path forward, at least. Thanks.

Of course, the wireless dongle works. Because it receives the IP address via DHCP. And the address is certainly not 192.168.0.xx.
This is also not a Blackbird specific or Void Linux problem. Network basics.

The onboard networking wasn’t working in its prior DHCP configuration either. You, yourself, told me that I’d need to connect to the BMC in order to accurately set the system time to resolve the issue. The instructions I was given to work with have not worked for me, and Raptor themselves confirmed that they’re investigating an issue suggesting that this is possibly tied to new software work done for the new Blackbird release. arp -a is not showing any IP addresses exposed on the client or server side. I’m just going to wait on Raptor. Thank you for trying to help.

What IP address does your router have?
