Set up boot method using IPMI


I try to use IPMI (openIPMI from Linux) to set up boot method on R310 using standard BMC. I use following command, which seems to succeed:

 #>ipmitool -l lan -U root -P calvin -H chassis bootparam set bootflag pxe
Set Boot Device to pxe

When I reboot machine it works indeed, but if I turn off and turn on the power it doesn't. Is there any way I can set up boot order from IPMI?

Re: Set up boot method using IPMI


Try this one:

#>ipmitool -l lan -U root -P calvin -H chassis bootdev pxe options=persistent

Set Boot Device to disk

This works on a Dell PowerEdge R210 II using standard BMC

Kind regards,
