Rebooting the IPMI interface

Modified on Thu, 23 Nov 2023 at 04:44 PM

In the event the IPMI needs to be rebooted, this can be done via a Linux host using the tool "ipmitool"



If you have local access to the host OS, you can run the following command

ipmitool mc reset cold


This can also be sent remotely if you know the IPMI IP address.

ipmitool -I lanplus -H <ipmi IP> -U <user> -P <password> mc reset cold


Please note it will take up to 5 minutes for the IPMI to reset, during this period the IPMI will be inaccessible.
