iLO4 - serial-over-lan timeout

> Subject: ILO serial over lan (SOL) timeout

 Hi -

 I keep active serial console sessions on all the hardware I work with by using ipmitool:

> ipmitool -U $userid -P $passwd -H $ipaddrofILO -I lanplus sol activate

 Something I've been meaning to follow up on is that ILO seems to timeout this session after about 1 week, and what I receive in the logs is:

> SOL session closed by BMC

Is there a setting somewhere to either set the value to a "very long time" or disable it?

Ideas?

Re: iLO4 - serial-over-lan timeout

Hi,

There is no setting in the iLO GUI for setting any timeout value for inactive session for IPMI. We suspect that there might be a possibility that the iLO session might have got reset because of which the session would have got closed. Also the IPMI spec too doesnt mention about any timeout values associated with an idle session.

Thanks,
Bonny.
