Regarding using ipmi thorugh iLO 3

Hello,

I am using ProLiant DL360 G7 server in my project.

These servers are going to be differnet nodes in a cluster.

I need to do cluster management e.g fence a node if a node goes down using IPMI.

as per my understanding, iLO 3 firmware provides server management usingg IPMI

I have configured iLO firmware and have also connected it to public network.

Thus, I am able to access iLO through a browser.

 

Now I want to send some commands to ipmi interface using ipmitool.

When I execute a command e.g.

"ipmitool sel"

following error is observed

" Could not open device at /dev/ipmi0 or /dev/ipmi/0 or /dev/ipmidev/0: No such file or directory
Get SEL Info command failed "

 

Following is the output of lsmod command

[root@ggns2mexsatsdp20 ~]# lsmod

Do I need to insert any other driver so that I am able to use ipmitool? If yes, then which driver? Is it part of hp-health driver package?

Can somebody help me in this conifguration?

 

Thanks and regards

Re: Regarding using ipmi thorugh iLO 3

you may need to start ipmi. 

To start it  as below

#service ipmi start

 

To check it as below, should show ipmi  on

#chkconfig
