DL160 G5 - 601 BMC Not Responding

Hi ALL,
Anyone here have experience this issues before? I'm already upgraded to latest firmware but still no go.

Noticed that under the ROM-based Setup Utility.
Under > Main

IPMI 2.0 Configuration
>Status Of BMC "Not Working"
>BMC Firmware Revision "blank"
>BMC/IPMI FW Date: "blank"
>BMC SDR Version: X.XX.XX.XXX
>Warehouse Build Number:XXX

Anyone got any idea how to put back the BMC firmware? please advice. thanks

Re: DL160 G5 - 601 BMC Not Responding

Hi Erdogan Temur,
Thanks for the replied, i managed to solve the problem by installing 1 more memory.

Problem: System Can't boot-up
Action Taken:
1. Replaced system board, can't resolved.
2. System installed 2x 2gb memory, so i by-pass 1 memory also unable to re-solved, end-up i found is both memory are faulty.(cause i bring another new spare memory)
3. After installed the new spare memory, found the 601- BMC Not responding message.
4. I upgraded new BIOS firmware - success, but BMC error still there.
5. I upgraded Update Lights-Out 100 firmware version - failed to upgraded
6. I get another new memory and installed and the BMC firmware managed to restore and working fine now.

PS: Meaning to say that this Proliant DL160 G6 can't work IF just installed 1 memory because it'll showed 601 - BMC not responding error?Can anyone clarify this?

Thanks

Regards,
Jason
