Restore IPMI access to malbec.arch.suse.de
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.

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] malbec login:
- Status changed from New to Workable
- Priority changed from Normal to High
- Target version set to Ready
so archticket then: https://infra.nue.suse.com/SelfService/Create.html?Queue=3
- Description updated (diff)
- Due date set to 2021-05-07
- Status changed from In Progress to Blocked
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.
