The administration interface (IPMI / RMM) offers the possibility to administer your server as if you were personally in front of the device. It is, inter alia, It is also possible to simulate virtual drives remotely from virtual drives, e.g. Installation media as a CD-ROM to install. It is important for the Supermicro IPMI module (also referred to as IPMI) that SUN Java is used on your home system. On Linux, it is often the case that the "openJDK" is installed - but this causes problems or errors when using the IPMI. Download link (sun website): http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html The module with the JavaJDK version 6 is tested. If you are experiencing problems with image composition please add the following at the end of the Browser address: /rpc/rebootcard.asp Example: http://192.168.24.24/rpc/rebootcard.asp (The IP must correspond to that of the RMM module.) The command will restart the RMM module - NOT the server Howto: Restart the server: If your server has once hung up and you are no longer able to access it, you can reboot via the RMM interface. Logging in to the RMM interface (For access data, see "Root server functions" in Central Customer Management ) Click on "Remote Control" Click "Server Power Control" on the left side a. Select either "Reset Server" This is the same as the "Reset Button on the device" or b. (Turns the server off and on again) The system reboots. An image signal is obtained after about 20-30 seconds. Howto: Use the software keyboard: Log in to the RMM interface (For access data, see "Root server functions" in the central customer management) Click on "Keyboard" - "Soft Keyboard" - "show". The language can be set under "Language". Howto: Integrating an Installation CD (ISO): Logging in to the RMM interface (For access data, see "Root Server Functions" in the Central Customer Management) Click on "Remote Control" (an applet window opens or a. Jnlp file that needs to be executed) The window that is displayed will now show the desktop of your server or the command line interface, depending on the operating system installed. For example, To set up a virtual CD-ROM drive and to provide it with a medium (for example, an installation CD), click on "Device" in the upper area. "Redirect ISO" On your home system, select the appropriate ISO file and click Open. You can now restart the server (See "Restarting the Server") Once again, you should press "F6" to enter the manual boot menu. Here you should select the image that corresponds to the embedded .ISO file. If the keys of your keyboard are not accepted by the RMM interface, please use the "software keyboard" of the RMM module. (See "Using the software keyboard") From here, the further history should depend on the embedded ISO image. Once the work has finished, you can remove the ISO image by removing the "Hook" from "Redirect ISO Image".
