Hi Michelle,

Do you have lm-sensors installed and did you run sensors-detect ?

With regards,
Paul van der Vlis.

Default openipmi does not connect to my IBM RSA2

Hello Paul van der Vlis,

Am 2012-08-08 13:02:20, hacktest Du folgendes herunter:
> Do you have lm-sensors installed and did you run sensors-detect ?

Yes and:

--[ command 'sensors-detect' ]------------------------------------------
# sensors-detect revision 5818 (2010-01-18 17:22:07 +0100)
# System: IBM eserver xSeries 345 -[8670G1X]-

This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
unless you know what you're doing.

Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): YES
Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595... No
VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors... No
VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors... No
AMD K8 thermal sensors... No
AMD Family 10h thermal sensors... No
AMD Family 11h thermal sensors... No
Intel Core family thermal sensor... No
Intel Atom thermal sensor... No
Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor... No
VIA C7 thermal sensor... No
VIA Nano thermal sensor... No

Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): YES
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
Trying family `National Semiconductor'... Yes
Found `Nat. Semi. PC8741x Super IO'
(no hardware monitoring capabilities)
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f
Trying family `National Semiconductor'... No
Trying family `SMSC'... No
Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'... No
Trying family `ITE'... No

Some systems (mainly servers) implement IPMI, a set of common interfaces
through which system health data may be retrieved, amongst other things.
We first try to get the information from SMBIOS. If we don't find it
there, we have to read from arbitrary I/O ports to probe for such
interfaces. This is normally safe. Do you want to scan for IPMI
interfaces? (YES/no): YES
Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0... No
Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8... No

Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports.
We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually
safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any
ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): YES
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290... No
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290... No
Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290... No
Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290... No

Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works
reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble
on some systems.
Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): YES
Using driver `i2c-piix4' for device 0000:00:0f.0: ServerWorks CSB5 South Bridge

Next adapter: SMBus PIIX4 adapter at 0440 (i2c-0)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): YES

Sorry, no sensors were detected.
Either your system has no sensors, or they are not supported, or
they are connected to an I2C or SMBus adapter that is not
supported. If you find out what chips are on your board, check
http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices for driver status.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is realy weird, because my RSA II (Remote Supervisory Adapter) use
IPMI oand on the IBM Website you can find IPMI infos for the x345 too.

I have the same problem with the x335 and x235.

The IBM RSA2 doesn't support any standard IPMI interface, does it? And
AFAIK the ibmasm driver only supports the older IBM RSA.

Look at the Subsystem vidid and compare it with the device list
supported by the ibmasm driver:

But the RSA2 has a vendor specific USB interface (in addition to the
mouse and keyboard interfaces) which can be used with some libusb based
tools from IBM, IIRC:

It's been a long time since I used this, though.... I only use the
network interface to manage the card nowadays. But you should be able
to download the necessary tools including source from IBM, unless my
memory fails me.

Yeah, my RSA2 isn't sitting in an IBM server either so it could work
differently from yours :-)

But the BMC in the servers should. Unrelated to the RSA2.

Right, on the Website was something written about connecting the RSA2
trough an USB cable...

I have downloaded the WHOLE software and burned in CD and created Floppy
images for the x235, x335 and x345.

:-D

Question:

Stoping the x345 trough ssh with "shutdown -h now" works as expected and
I have installed "etherwake" und tried to use wakeonlan to wake up the
machine, but it does not work. I used this HOWTO:

<http://www.blog.highub.com/php/php-core/set-ubuntu-up-for-wake-on-lan/>

But it does not work, even the all thre servers (x235, x335 and x345)
support it. (I can wake them up using a Windowss 7 Laptop)

Do you know, whether I can use a script with wget, to access the RSA or
RSA2 to startup the Server?

I need to shutdoen the servers

1) for security reason
2) save energy (the servers in question have more then 3 kw/h
and with 0,2332 ¢/kwh it is too expensive)

since a huge number of servers are only used if they are needed, speak,
the do nothing some weeks and then they must give in one week all the
power it they have

Mee too, but it does not work on my Squeeze system because it seems that
I need a lib with a different versions.

Right. No, sorry, I do not know this. One of the major differences
using the RSA2 in an unsupported server is that I don't have the poweron
control. I am using an external APC7920 for that purpose instead. I
needed the remote power management for other devices anyway, so putting
the server there isn't a problem.
