    Angry Re: How to factory reset IPMI configuration without GUI

    I managed to lock myself out of the gui. I was disabling IPMI on the intel lan on my E3C224D4I-14S and wanted to keep it only on the dedicated realtek adapter. I was disabling services and I thought I disabled http/https access on the correct interface. I managed to do something wrong and now the login page does not even pull up. Only the realtek has an ip when the server is not booted so I did this partially right. I can log in remotely using ipmitool. I issued the command 'mc reset cold' which seems to only reset the admin password. I can not see the services with ipmitool to re-enable http/https and I can not find the correct raw codes to reset it to the factory defaults. I have tried configuring the other channel using with dhcp and a static ip. It errors out and the ip stays at 0.0.0.0 and it has no mac address. Please advise how I can default this preferably with ipmitool. thanks. I do not know why I have to constantly dig around for what I need to manage this board when other server board manufacturers have this info readily available.

    Hi j_r0dd, please let me know the BMC Reset utility did the work for you. Thank you! Bill

    Exclamation Re: How to factory reset IPMI configuration without GUI

    Hi All,

    Same problem as above. I locked myself out of the IPMI by changing the network settings. Tried "ipmicfg -fd" and firmware update over "ipmiutil" without success.
    Only option i know of to regain control is a BMC factory reset. Board is: E3C226D2I. Can PM serial/other info.

    Please help with guiding on factory reset!

    Best,
    Bob-freenas

    Hello there !

    I've locked myself out of my system too (C2550D4I).
    I wanted to change the admin password and (I think that's what caused the lockout) entered a 100-something bit password into the system. It was only when I accepted the changes that it dawned on me that the "20 bit" checkbox was there for a reason (more complex passwords don't get stored right, I guess), but it was too late.

    I tried getting in with part of the entered password and (of course) with the full one, but no luck.
    And, of course, I never configured any mail in the system.

    Can somebody point me towards a reset maneuver ?

    Hi guys,

    I've been in talk with a member of the support team, who, in exchange for my mail address and the MB serial number, sent me the software that is needed to reset (entirely) the IPMI configuration (not your disks, but the whole "access-from-afar-web-interface" thingie).
    The tool works fine to reset users passwords, and it never caused me any trouble.
    Just load it on a FreeDOS USB stick (on the root of the drive), insert it in the MB plug, load it on startup with the F11 key, and you get to the C:> prompt.
    Run the command they instruct you to, and the tool works magic all by itself, tells you its done, and then you can reboot (I only found hard reboot then) the machine.
    On reboot, I was able to use the factory default user/pw combination.

    Nice to see that the MB is still receiving support !


    Cheers,

    Hello there,

    I don't know how, but I managed it to set the MAC address of my C2550D4I to 00-00-00-00-00-00. I can't find any solution to resolve my problem. Can you guys help me?

    UEFI Version: P2.40
    BMC Version: 0.30.0
    OS: Windows Server 2012R2


    Thanks

    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    In BIOS - BMC Networking Configuration, do you find an option "Restore Factory MAC"?
