Question Date
1 On my old motherboard H8SME-F, when I checked the sensor from IPMI, it’s not show anything. I even did reboot and reset it, but it is still the same issue. 07/25/14
2 What is the IPMI raw command to disable/enable BBP (battery backup power) "Timeout Value for graceful shutdown setting"? 07/21/14
3 Can you please confirm ASAP that PUE fan mode is supported for X9DRT MBs? This is regular TWIN MBs. If yes, please confirm which FW supports it. 07/18/14
4 I have the X7SPE-HF-D525. I already installed this firmware SMT_313.zip on one system. Now I cannot set the IP address:

# ipmitool lan set 1 ipaddr

Setting LAN IP Address to

LAN Parameter Data does not match! Write may have failed.

When I set it to DHCP mode it doesn't pick up an IP address.
Is that firmware not supposed to be installed on the X7SPE? If so how can I correct this?

I would like to reset the entire setting of IPMI to default setting. I know that I must use IPMICFG. However,  it only comes in flavor of Windows and Linux, while my system is using FreeBSD.

Can you give me a way out from this ?

6 I have X9DR7-LN4F motherboard. How do I clear a failed fan state? The fan is not failed but it was unplugged and moved from header 6 to header 5. I don't see a way to clear this in the web console or ipmiview software. Is it only available to clear in the bios? 07/18/14
7 I have X9DRW-IF motherboard. From the same MB X9DRW-If screenshots, one showing IPMI, the other one not showing IPMI on menu. I flashed BIOS and IPMI FW but nothing is different. Is this bad MB? Have you ever reported this error? 07/11/14
8 I have a SuperServer 1027R-WRF with motherboard X9DRW-iF, IPMI FW Rev 2.45. When I configure onboard LAN to 100M speed, the LED does not behave correctly. It will show amber color instead of solid green/yellow. Any solution for this? 07/04/14

I can confirm that with latest fw (3.19) that ‘PSBlock’ vulnerability is fixed. “But ‘ipmi_dumphashes’ (https://community.rapid7.com/community/metasploit/blog/2013/07/02/a-penetration-testers-guide-to-ipmi) vulnerability still exists: one can easily get a password hashes for future cracking.”


We encountered what we believe is a bug with SuperDoctor 5.0 on SYS-6027AX-72RF-HFT1 systems. These systems basically do not respond to any SNMP requests that we send to get hardware status to our monitoring system. Running the command suggested on Supermicro website generates an error:

 /opt/SSM/SuperDoctor5/libs/native/snmpagent -n . Failed to open '/opt/SSM/SuperDoctor5/cache/snmp.tmp' correctly. Program aborts.

We are using 5.0.0_build.421-20130718163548
