When we moved openqaworker1 to the new QA lab it seems we never cared about the IPMI connection. We need to apply the right VLAN on the corresponding port port 31

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: Engineering VLAN is available on the uplink
  • AC2: Downlink ( port 31) is configured to use the corresponding VLAN


As the machine currently receives an address within the QA-Net try ipmitool -I lanplus -C 3 -H or ipmitool -I lanplus -C 3 -H or if all fails lookup the address on qanet ssh root@qanet "journalctl -u dhcpd | grep -i 'DHCPACK.*2C:60:0C:73:05:5A'"

I connected the machine back to port 2 with the old cable and checked that this one is fine, it's just not in the right VLAN.

IIRC, we already have the engeneering vlan available on that switches uplink.
So it should be sufficient to configure that port to the right vlan id.

Other than this ticket suggests (but in line with racktables) the bmc of openqaworker1 is connected to port 25 of the switch.

I created VLAN 2 (engineering) on the switch and added the uplink LAG to VLAN 2 in tagged mode and port 25 to VLAN 2 in untagged mode.

Now is available again. I also crosschecked the MAC address as listed in racktables and it seems to be fine:
