How to reinstall OS (Linux or Windows) on supermicro with IPMI?

 

OS Installation from Virtual Media



- Login to your IPMI (you should have IP address of IPMI and the credentials). To begin, open your favorite FireFox browser (we recommend) and go to

 HTTPS://YOUR_IPMI_IP/

then accept all warnings and error messages for SSL certificate and add an exception for the IP. After login you should see:



- Click on Remote console preview image to start iKVM java application (you should have Java VM 1.6 installed)

   * Click Virtual Media menu Item and select Virtual Media from drop down menu

   * if iKVM is unable to connect and shows an error message, reset it from the maintenance tab of IPMI home page or reset the IPMI module (it could take up to 2 minutes and you will not be able to connect to IPMI during this time).

   * Go to CDROM&ISO tab

   * Select ISO file in Logical Drive type drop down

   * Press Open Image

   * Select your ISO with your OS installer and press open

   * Click Plug In




Now your ISO is in the Virtual CDROM and ready to boot.

- Click On RESET button from main page of IPMI (see screenshot 1).

- Go back to iKVM java application and periodically press the F11 key while server boots to pull up the boot menu.

- Select IPMI Virtual CDROM and press Enter



- Proceed with your favorite OS installation.

NOTE: Do not close java iKVM application during the OS installation process, it will “eject” your virtual CDROM.
