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
