1 I have 8 fans in my system, however IPMI is only able to see one fan.

Why is that so?

It is running on Ubuntu 14.04 with kernel 3.19.

There is no Java from Oracle for it.
3 We are getting error when try to run IPMIView.

OS: Ubuntu 15.10 x86_64

IPMIView : v2.11.0 build 151223

root#java -version

java version "1.8.0_74"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_74-b02)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.74-b02, mixed mode)

root#java -jar IPMIView20.jar

java.io.IOException: Not supported by Operating System

4 BIOS 2.0 IPMI 3.27 System 7048GR-TR with two GPU card (Xeon Phi7120P).
Every time after system reboot will have some logs in IPMI:

"Description: Xeon Phi Throttle @ Left Zone - Aassertion"
5 We have plenty of supermicro 6026(motherboard is X8DTT-F,BMC WPCM450).
We upgraded the ipmi firmware to the least version(3.03). And make sure it's working properly.

After a few days or even hours. some of them's BMC password were unable to login.

even use ipmi tools. no response(ping is reachable.)

But if we plug out the node and reinstall. and the bmc works again.

but we can't always plug out and reinstall. does that a bug or something i can do to fix this issue?
6 iKVM may be dropped out after BIOS updates and sync with IPMI in X10 boards if customer uses shared LAN. How can I prevent from this happening or any workaround? 05/09/16
7 When we copy the HW info from IPMI Web, it also copies the IPMI IP address and presents the information as a Hyperlink.

This is a potential security risk, as IPMI IP of the system can be known if HW info is copied and sent. Please check on this and I feel we should remove this Hyperlink from HW info.
8 We’d like to know how to use/read the I2C connector on your X8SIE-LN4 and X8DTH.
We are using it through IPMI on your other motherboards, like X11SSi-LN4F. Since X8SIE-LN4 and X8DTH don’t support IPMI, is there a way to use it (read pin#2 Data)?

9 For X9 IPMI web interface is there a possibility to deactivate TCP Timestamp? By reading the TCP Timestamp we could read the system uptime like: "210 days, 0 hours, 37 minutes, 21 seconds" 04/29/16
10 For X9 IPMI, the HTTP Response Header "Server" like "lighttpd/1.4.23" is not disabled. So it reveals the version of the webserver. 04/29/16
