Description

The IPMI command as documented in workerconf.sls doesn't work:

ipmitool -I lanplus -C 3 -H fsp1-malbec.arch.suse.de -P admin sol activate
Error: Unable to establish IPMI v2 / RMCP+ session

I assume it worked before and can somehow be restored.

History

#1 Updated by nicksinger 4 months ago

you can login over SSH onto the host and issue ipmitool lan print 1 to get the IP of the BMC which is 10.161.60.189 in the case of malbec. With dig -x 10.161.60.189 +short it shows that the BMC currently has some autogenerated DNS name: c445.arch.suse.de. I assume this is due to a recent switch to cobbler in the arch network. However, with the right IP also SOL works:

selenium ~ » ipmitool -I lanplus -C 3 -H 10.161.60.189 -P admin sol activate                                       1 ↵
[SOL Session operational.  Use ~? for help]

The actual host should be "fsp1-malbec.arch.suse.de" but the error is the same.

https://infra.nue.suse.com/SelfService/Display.html?id=187768#txn-2857054 called it done but it only works for IPv4. There is an AAAA record which does not resolve to a valid IP so reopened.

MC was reset by gschlotter, now both addresses are reachable. I verified and it looks good.
