|Issue||How do I enable IPMI on Series 2 and Series 3 RSA NetWitness NextGen appliances?|
Series 2 Appliances: IPMI was not included with Serial 2 appliances in general. For S2 SuperMicro appliances, an IPMI riser card must be purchased. For S2 Dell appliances, an IPMI DRAC card must be purchased. It can then be plugged into the plastic insert of the appliance. The exception is for S2 appliance: NWA1200-16DS, which is built with a IPMI card.
Option 1: Using use IPMICFG utility. Please see the attached PDF document for S3 SuperMicro embedded IPMI interface description.
Option 2: Using ipmitool per the below steps.
1. Install the IPMI tool
"ipmitool lan set" will print all available options.
|Notes||Our S3 Dell's IPMI implementation is not a full implementation, but is rather a remote console. It will go down if the Operating System is down, so it is not truly an iLO type interface. For true IPMI support on S3 Dell appliances, an IPMI DRAC card must be purchased.|
