I purchased a new Supermicro Superserver SS6015B-T (motherboard is X7DBR-E) about 3 weeks ago with the IPMI module (part called SIMSO) and have had a hard time getting the IPMI functionality to work in RELENG_6. Particularly, when I attempt to 'kldload ipmi' I get the following output in dmesg: ipmi0: <IPMI System Interface> on isa0 ipmi0: KCS mode found at mem 0xca2 alignment 0x4 on isa ipmi0: KCS: Failed to start write ipmi0: KCS Error retry exhausted ipmi0: KCS: Failed to start write ipmi0: KCS Error retry exhausted ipmi0: KCS: Failed to start write ipmi0: KCS Error retry exhausted ipmi0: Timed out waiting for GET_DEVICE_ID >From the dmesg, it appears it's finding the IPMI device, but unable to interact with it. Meanwhile, no device shows up in /dev so ipmitool does not work, either. For reference, here is my uname: FreeBSD exodus 6.2-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE #9: Fri Nov 10 10:56:39 PST 2006 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/EXODUS amd64 This is a RELENG_6 build with a CVSUP done just before the compile date of the kernel. The SIMSO IPMI card itself works, I can access it via the web management console, I just can not get the kernel driver to work with it. Any help and/or references would be greatly appreciated.
