Pinned topic Accessing OOB Management on IBM 3850 M2 / x3950 M2

‏2013-02-19T10:05:55Z |

I was hoping you might be able to help with this issue.

We have taken over management of a remote site with several IBM 3850's. We've identified BMC's and have configured basic access with IPMI tool. Though the documentation seems to indicate that there is a web interface and virutal KVM available, (also snmp (see below)), but when we attempt to point a browser at the IP addresses, it fails to load anything.

Unfortunately these are production boxes at a VERY remote location, so we can't reboot them and play around in the BIOS.

How can we turn on the Web interface for the BMC/RSA card(s) (from the Linux CLI)?
(The documentation is a bit confusing and seems to indicate that the BMC having IP access turns on the web interface. It also indcates that the SNMP is turned on, but it will not allow us toe SNMP queuries n the BMC. Only commands with ipmpitool (which WORKS)).

Any help or pointers to a document which address the steps needed to enable this would be appreciated.
