IPMI

Your group should have your IPMI username and password as well as the hostname for the management console. TIG keeps a record in our lastpass account as well.

First log into the console server holyoke-console.csail.mit.edu with your CSAIL username/password.

For this example we are using the root IPMI username and password and checking the power status of the machine holyoke-demo by using the management console hostname rac-holyoke-demo:

$ipmitool -I lanplus -U root -H rac-holyoke-demo chassis power status 
Password:
Chassis Power is on

To hard reboot the machine:

$ipmitool -I lanplus -U root -H rac-holyoke-demo chassis power cycle
Password:
Chassis Power Control: Cycle

To see what the machine is doing while it is booting:

$ipmitool -I lanplus -U root -H rac-holyoke-demo sol activate
Password:
(May have to press enter a couple times to get a prompt.)

To view the serial event log for troubleshooting:

$ipmitool -I lanplus -U root -H rac-holyoke-demo sel elist
Password:
   1 | 05/17/2016 | 02:31:11 | Event Logging Disabled SEL | Log area reset/cleared | Asserted
   2 | 08/10/2016 | 16:53:11 | Power Supply PS Redundancy | Fully Redundant | Asserted

To view the Sensor Data Repository for troubleshooting:

$ipmitool -I lanplus -U root -H rac-holyoke-demo sdr list
