Using ipmitool to adjust callin and password

Modified on Thu, 11 May, 2023 at 10:53 AM

Changing IPMI user password, adjusting user callin settings and connecting to ipmi remotely.

Get user list for channel 1
sudo ipmitool user list 1

For user 2 - "admin", enable callin etc:
sudo ipmitool channel setaccess 1 2 callin=on ipmi=on link=on

Lets also reset user password (note, password must be different from current)
sudo ipmitool user set password 2 admin123!

Then try access remotely again
sudo ipmitool -I lanplus -H <IP> -U <User ID> -P <pass> chassis status
