Target version:-


We have two dell machines, and When they are binded with ipmi worker, the jobs on those two machines can not survive reboot. For example, after host installation when it boots to the new os, the sol console can only get black screen, not reactive at all. So does any other simple reboot.

After debugging by john and jerry, it is found that the reset_console operation leads to this failure because the existing sol console connection is not properly cleaned up and result in failure in the new sol console setup.

John and jerry also have their 2 proposals as solutions which are open for discussions. I will let them describe in more details in later comments.
