IPMI port setup on 5020 w/22.214.171.124
I have searched the documentation, knowledgebase, and the forums, and I cannot find detailed information on how to configure and use the IPMI port on a NetBackup Appliance 5020 running v126.96.36.199.
I did find steps to configure the port in the DedupAppSW_Admin_Guide, but the commands don't work let alone exist. I also don't see if the port supports 100MB Ethernet, 1GB, etc. Am I missing something? Does the port need to be turned on in a BIOS config first that I don't know about or is mentioned anywhere? The port is there and the 188.8.131.52 documentation states that I can use it, but apparently the commands are not available on our 5020 appliances.
Once the port is setup, is it just a matter of opening a browser such as IE or FireFox and going to the IP address assigned to the IPMI port?
I did not know they were available until this past weekend when I was working on a case with a Symantec tech and he asked me if I had IPMI setup. It would have been nice to have it setup because I could have done my troubleshooting and patching from home instead of having to come into the office on the weekend. ;-)
Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'd love to get this setup on all of our appliances. We use the ILO on our HP server and this sounds like it works exactly the same.
