IMPI fails to start in a HP ProLiant DL380 G6 server running 64-bit RHEL5

Hi guys

 

I have two HP ProLiant DL380 G6 servers running 64-bit RHEL5 where I installed the HP-health and HP-Insight services.

 

In the server A, the hp-health service starts successfully but in the server B hp-health fails:

 

  # service ipmi start
  Starting ipmi drivers:                      [FAILED]

 

  # service ipmi status
  ipmi_msghandler module loaded.
  ipmi_si module not loaded.
  ipmi_devintf module not loaded.
  /dev/ipmi0 does not exist.

 

I found a procedure in this document but the first command suggested fails:

 

  # modprobe ipmi_si type=kcs ports=0xca2
  FATAL: Error inserting ipmi_si (/lib/modules/2.6.18-194.el5/kernel/drivers/char/ipmi/ipmi_si.ko): No such device

 

In the /var/log/messages file the following messages are found:

 

  kernel: ipmi message handler version 39.1
  kernel: IPMI System Interface driver.
  kernel: ipmi_si: Trying hardcoded-specified kcs state machine at i/o address 0xca2, slave address 0x0, irq 0

Can anybody help?

 

Thanx in advance
