Use IPMItool with replaced controller

Hi all,

We have follow this tutorial to replace a faulty Unity controller.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOPNMiZ9m6E

After swapping controllers we are not able to access SOL (Serial Over Lan) port using IPMITool due to an incorrect password so I suspect the password is associated to the controller not to the system. As this is a replacement unit we don't have the IPMI password that usually appears on the front label of the cabinet. Does anyone have any procedure to recover SOL password?

Hi @DELL-Sam L

What we don't have is "Unity_serial_number" or "console" password to access ipmi

ipmitool.exe -I lanplus -C 3 -U console -P <unity_serial_number> -H 128.221.1.252 sol activate

Hello jtejada.ralco,

You will need the serial# or the service tag in order to change the password.
